What to expect?
A warm welcome at the door by members of our multi-generational community.
A relaxed environment. You don’t need to dress up or worry about being singled out when you visit.
Variety in worship and music. Several worship teams lead us in a mix of contemporary songs and some of the greatest hits of past generations. You can sing along, or just listen.
A community-led service. A variety of people lead the singing, reading, prayers, children’s stories and teaching.
Programming for children during the service. They are welcome to leave for a time of learning and play that suits their age while our pastor teaches the adults.
Worship time running from 10:20 AM to about 11:30 AM. We often have a time for coffee and visiting.
Who we are
Crossroads Community Church is actually at a crossroads, 19th St. and 8th Ave. N.E. It was established in Mayland Heights in January 1980 and is an evangelical church and member of the Associated Gospel Churches of Canada.
We are also a Community Church, existing in the heart of Crossroads and with hearts of love – serving people in the three communities that make up the larger Crossroads Community: Vista Heights, Mayland Heights, and Belfast . A good number of people travel from other communities as well.
We hope you will join us and be a part of the next chapter in the story of God’s kingdom work through our church for His glory.
Keith, is working with us for the second time. In the early days of our church, 1983-87, he served as our associate pastor. During that time he caught his first Bow River brown trout on a Wednesday evening after prayer meeting. It was a gateway experience and he eventually got hooked on fly-fishing.
In 1987 Keith was commissioned along with a church planting team from Crossroads to begin a new work. This resulted in a new re-vitalized church near the University of Calgary called Varsity Bible Church.
Keith returned to work with us from Varsity in the spring of 2019. His sense of calling to serve here again is expressed in Philippians 1: 25 -26“ I will continue with all of you for your progress and joy in the faith, so that through my being with you again your joy in Christ Jesus will overflow on account of me.”
Yvonne is our church administrator. She keeps the oil in the machinery of managing an active congregation and a church building that serves in many ways as a community centre.
