Getting Connected

Everyone has a purpose and a role to play in life, and at The Meeting Place we believe that you have been created to play a positive and life-changing role in our community, our city, and our world.

No matter where you've been, what you've done, or what's been done to you, whether you believe in God or not, God believes in you!

At The Meeting Place church in Nanaimo you can belong without having to believe. There is always a place for you, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.

Where do I start to get connected?

Garry, one of the pastors at TMP says, “Being connected at TMP is not about giving and receiving information or 'doing stuff'. It's about living life with a vibrant group of people who thrive on building friendships and exploring their hopes and dreams, interests and goals as they relate to God's call on their lives.”

Your unique personality and gifting is part of this work of art that we call The Meeting Place. Your heart, your passion, your willingness to serve others, and allow others to serve you, regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey, is welcomed. There is a place for you at The Meeting Place!

Would I really make a difference?

The 'The Meeting Place' comes from the Coast Salish First Nations People who originally named this part of Vancouver Island "snew-nay-mow" (Snuneymuxw) which means "the meeting place" or "a big, strong tribe". 

Our church community has arisen from the diversity of the people in our community and from the belief that when we all come together under the common purpose of living out the love of Jesus Christ, we can change the world for the better.

And yes, that includes you!

I’m ready! Who can I talk to?
