Welcome to Providence.
We meet at 10:00 each Sunday morning at the Monterey Centre in Oak Bay. Our purpose is to hear God’s Word, sing his praise, draw near to him in prayer, and encourage one another to follow the Lord Jesus in the week ahead.
Our weekly worship begins with friendly informality, yet continues with a respectful and reverent awareness that we are meeting also with the Lord Jesus himself who promised, “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20). In this light our singing, praying, encouraging, Scripture reading, and preaching take on very great importance, and become a weekly priority for us all.
At the close of our worship time we enjoy coffee and refreshments together, and always look forward to meeting new people and making new friends.

That weekly worship depends on expository, Christ-centred preaching.
That to love God is to love his people, and to be involved with them.
