Community Groups

Canvas Camps

Canvas Oak Bay gathers weekly at 6:00 - 7:15 PM. You can expect to meet great people, enjoy complimentary tea and snacks, and encounter God through music and teachings from the Bible.

We meet at the Monterey Recreation Centre (1442 Monterey Ave) in the Douglas Fir room. You can enter through the main entrance on Monterey Ave or the back entrance on Hampshire Rd. There is plenty of parking at either entrance.

Childcare is provided for children 4 and under, and a variety of resources are available to help older kids engage in the service with their parents. The dress is casual, and your questions are welcomed. Bring a friend, and we hope to see you soon!
