Frequently Asked Questions
What does the church believe?
Read our statement of beliefs here.
What should I wear?
Come as you are! We generally are a casual church so please wear whatever you are comfortable in.
Where should I park?
There is a small parking area on the south side of the building that we would like to make available for seniors and young families. We have a parking lot just west of our building, and parking is also available in the neighbourhood surrounding the church. McKernan Baptist Church is located three blocks east of the McKernan/Belgravia LRT Station.
I'm in a wheelchair. How can I access the facility?
Our entire facility is wheelchair accessible. We recommend you enter the church at the south entrance. This is located next to the elevator. There is a wheelchair lift at the north entrance, however it is not as easy to use as the elevator.
What about my kids?
- Children’s Ministry: We provide care for nursery aged children (infants to age three) as well as Sunday School programs for children aged 4 up to grade 6 on Sundays during both the 9:00am and 11:00am services.
- Youth Ministry: There are lots of opportunities for junior high students to get involved on Sunday mornings! Please email Dave if you are interested in helping out.
What if I have questions?
You will likely be met at the door by one of our Greeters. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them to point you in the right direction.
Also in the main foyer is our Welcome Centre. It is the hub of information at McKernan Baptist Church. Drop by to ask questions or to sign up for upcoming events. Newcomers, we also have a gift available for you if you fill out a Welcome Card, which helps us stay connected to you!
