What can you expect?
We want you to feel at home at the Bridge so here's a few little things that might help:
Service format We generally start with some music, followed by family announcements and a short coffee break, a talk and then end with some music, or prayer or both. Communion is offered at every service. We occassionally mix up the order but this is our usual format. Our meeting runs for approximately 1hr 30mins.
Who is welcome? Everyone! And when you look that up in the dictionary it means 'everyone'!
Where do I park? There is parking directly outside the school, along the surrounding roads and also outside the Matsqui Hall (next to the Firehall). Please be respectful of our local residents properties and drive slowly through the village.
Where do my kids go and when? Starting on September 8 there are groups for the children that run during the meetings. Babes&Tots meet at the hall and children from age 3 to Grade 5 meet at Matsqui Elementary School one block south of the community hall. See the bridgeKIDS page for more details.
What about my older youth? They can join you in the meeting. Youth meets at other times. Check out the bridgeYOUTH page.
Dress Code We are not formal at the Bridge, you'll often find us in jeans and other casual clothes. There's no need to put on a suit and tie (unless you want to of course)
Smokers corner The Hall is a smoke free facility and as such smoking is not permitted inside the building. However, there is room enough once outside the building.
We hope you'll join us, come say hi...
