Missional Town Centres

Willingdon's desire is for the people of Metro Vancouver to experience spiritual, social, and economic flourishing through the experience of Christ’s love through us. Our vision is for Missional Town Centres to serve as gathering points for us to engage the local community with the good news of Jesus Christ.

What is a missional town centre?

Historically, town centers provide strategic gathering points for Christians to engage the local community with the good news of Jesus Christ. Today, we know that Willingdon Church has a similar role to play as we are intentionally located in the heart of Burnaby. We believe Jesus is transforming our communities as His kingdom advances throughout Burnaby and beyond.

Join us on mission with Jesus as we passionately share Him through our words and actions at Willingdon, across Metro Vancouver, and around the world!

MTC Edmonds

In the Edmonds community, a group of people coalesced around the idea of being in their community for the purpose of the Gospel. Through prayer walks, relationship building acts like community clean-ups, serving in the local school and serving the vulnerable, Willingdon and the other churches have built a foundation of trust with their community. Individuals who otherwise would not have encountered those who live for the Gospel are welcoming them. We praise God that Willingdon Church families continue to see God’s hand open doors to engage the Edmonds area.

If you are interested in joining the group in Edmonds or would like more information, please contact us by email.
