What kind of church is Eaglemont Christian Church (ECC)?
As the name states, it is a ‘Christian’ church. A true church, in the way the word is used in the New Testament, can be nothing but truly Christian. And to be ‘truly Christian’ a person and group must base their beliefs, practices and lifestyle solely on the Bible. We are affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada
What will there be for my family?

What will there be for children?
ECC is a place where children grades 1 – 6 can grow in a positive and encouraging environment. Sunday mornings for kids are exciting and interactive with quality character-building games, stories & songs. We care about your child’s safety and well-being!
‘FUN-dations’ is the place for pre-school children. A place for them to laugh, learn, and grow.
Full nursery care is also available during Sunday morning Gatherings!
How do I know children’s & youth workers can be trusted?
Those who work with children and youth at ECC must go through background and police checks. The safety of your children and young people are a major concertn to us. All children and youth workers/volunteers must go through a program designed to ensure your children are placed in only the safest possible care”, ECC is about ensuring the safety & well-being of the young people in our programs.
What should I wear to a Sunday morning Gathering at ECC?
We want people to be comfortable – whether that means jeans or a suit and tie. It’s not about what you wear. We’d just be honored if you came as our guest!
I’ll probably feel out of place!
We’re here for you, so don’t think we’ll be surprised that you’ve come…we’re expecting you!
What’s with the singing in a church?
Some people, with not too much church background, have called it ‘Karaoke’. Call it what you want but it’s one of the ways the Bible says Christians can worship God, and express praise to Him. Music can often help people connect to God. You don’t have to participate. If it’s unfamiliar to you, it’s O.K. to just observe!
If I come to a Sunday Gathering, will I be singled out or embarrassed (or harassed later on)?
We will not ask guests/newcomers to stand, or pin a flower on their lapel (or anything like that). We will welcome you warmly and genuinely, but will also respect your freedom to choose anonymity. If you decide to fill out a ‘Communication Card’ we’ll make contact with you to let you know that it was great to have you with us and to give you the opportunity to tell us what your experience at an ECC service was like (we can learn from people like you)! We invite you to ‘walk the journey’ with us, but you won’t be ‘besieged’ either.
Some might think: ‘The church building might cave in if I attend.’
We respectfully disagree. First of all, the building is built well. Secondly, we are convinced that God will be excited if you decide to come…and so will we!
Do I have to believe in God or Jesus before I can attend?
Absolutely not! As a matter of fact, we’d think you are courageous to check us out if you are not a Christian. If you’re a seeker, or a skeptic, or ambivalent…you are more than welcome, and we’d be excited to have you check us out!
