Willingdon Church

Ever since Willingdon Church held its first service on April 30, 1961, our vision has been to welcome and serve the community. Today, we are home to over 4000 adults, children, and youth who gather in Burnaby, British Columbia to worship together.

We are a community church, biblical in our message, with international attendance that reflects the cultural diversity of Greater Vancouver and beyond. We are uplifting in our worship and focused in our commitment to prayer, and we are passionate about being on mission with Jesus, both locally and globally. Our commitment is to “know Jesus Christ personally and carry on His ministry.”
