It’s happening…from the dream stage to the building stage! We couldn’t be more excited to share with you, our community, the progress towards our new permanent home at1384 Deep Cove Road.
It is here where we will continue to fulfill our vision that The Bridge Church becomes a people known throughout the community for their deep devotion to God and to one another... a church committed to building bridges into people's lives.
Please read more about our building project below. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or 604.985.4011... we would love to hear from you!

To grow stronger connections with the community where the majority of our attending families live. Offering more space to invite family, friends and neighbours to the weekend service - as well as various events and programs - where they too can experience God’s grace, mercy and love.
To give our kids and youth more space for programs and activities, to not only nurture and build relationships with new friends, but also encounter Jesus and learn what it means to have a dynamic, meaningful, lifelong relationship with Him.
Why this location?
Deep Cove is a place of incredible natural beauty, and we are excited to create a worship space in a location surrounded by God’s amazing creation.
This location offers the opportunity to share God’s compelling story in Deep Cove, while continuing to grow a compassionate and giving community devoted to building bridges into people’s lives.
For more than 40 years The Bridge Church has been looking for a location east of Seymour River to accommodate our growing church. The families of The Bridge Church live primarily on the east side of the Seymour community. We have 72 families (62% of the attendees of the church) living east of the Seymour River.
The red dots on the map below indicate where our families live in the community. The Deep Cove/Seymour area has an excellent established lit and paved trail way system that has significantly impacted the walking culture of our community. Our new home is located near the majority of our attendees’ homes, and many of our families live just a short walk away. We are predominantly a neighbourhood church. We are already part of the neighbourhood, and we hope that our new building will be a place where the community comes out to connect with each other.
What do we offer the community?
A relaxing and inviting environment where people of all ages can come throughout the week to connect, enjoy and share in their faith journey.
In addition to a weekly worship service on Sundays, we offer a wide variety of programs and activities: kids programs, youth programs, adult groups and bible studies, men’s groups, women’s groups, marriage & parenting courses, community outreach programs and events, and many more.
Our families have always been involved in serving in our community in various volunteer roles.Members and families of The Bridge Church volunteer in over 230 positions, in many activities, and for many organizations on the North Shore.
Not only do our attendees live close to our new “soon to be” home, but they offer the community their time, their support and are truly committed to nurturing the core values of fellowship, worship, prayer, family and outreach.

May 30th, 2017
On May 3rd and 4th we had information meetings to show people the new building plans and on May 7th held a congregational meeting for our members to vote on going to the District of North Vancouver with our building proposal. The vote was an overwhelming yes! We're excited about what this means going forward. It's going to take all of us, united together, to make this work - God's doing good stuff among us.
As we move forward with the building project, we would like to give the congregation opportunities to engage in this process. To this end we held a 'Meet the architects meeting’, on May 25th, everyone was invited to provide feedback and input into the detailed design of the building. We received lots of constructive feedback, which the architects will take into consideration.
If you were unable to attend the meeting we would like to hear from you. Please send us an email to [email protected] on your thoughts for the detailed design on the building project. Please also contact us if you would like to review the design parameters document that was given to the architects.
If you would like to see the building plans and some accompanying visuals, drop by home base during office hours (Tuesday-Thursday 8:00-15:00), where displays are located in the entrance.
