Expect to Feel Welcome at Our Sunday Morning Service

We are a vibrant church in the Halifax area of all ages who love God and love others authentically. As you enter into the church meeting place, expect to be greeted warmly and our hope is that you will feel the tangible love of Jesus in our midst. As you come in, please take the opportunity to have some fresh coffee, muffins and timbits (a maritime favourite ☺) as you are settling into the worship service.

Children are very welcome and cherished at Anchor City Church. We have children’s church during the time of the message, and we worship as families to start the service. You are welcome to have your children take part in children’s church or to keep them with you through the whole service – as you feel comfortable.

Expect Authentic Sunday Morning Worship

Expect a sense of excitement as we enter into worship as a church. The worship includes a number of instruments, and we are excited to connect into the anointing of music that runs very deep in our Maritime culture. We want everyone in the church to have the freedom to worship Jesus as they feel comfortable. Some will stand in worship, while others will sit, some will raise their hands and dance around, while others are more reflective in the worship experience.

During the service, someone might feel they have a prophetic word, a testimony, a prayer request or something they feel God has placed on their heart to share. Each week, the eldership team has someone in the front row to hear what comes forward from the community and looks to work that into the worship service.

Expect to Hear Biblical Teaching


We are excited at Anchor City Church to share from the Word of God from week to week. Expect that what is shared will be engaging, relevant, done in humility, and most importantly as it is the Word of God that it will be life impacting. We trust the Holy Spirit to speak deeply to our hearts as we open the Bible to walk through God’s truth together. We believe there is no other guide to life, and we treat the Bible as having final authority in all issues of life.

Expect a Casual Sunday Morning Service Environment

At Anchor City Church, we see ourselves as walking together intimately as friends and family, so we behave accordingly. Expect our dress to be quite casual and laid back, and expect a freedom filled and quite relaxed atmosphere. We are not focused on titles and religious activity, but we are focused on the love of Jesus Christ in our lives and desire to share that with others.
