I'm New

Welcome To Willow Park Church!

Everyone is welcome here - we are all different and yet feel like we belong because nobody's perfect.

At each of our locations, you will find a group of warm and friendly people who are trying to be more like Jesus. Whether you are looking for a church home, or you just want to see what we're all about, we'd love for you to join us during our next service!

Our Vision

Our Vision is really simple, we want "to see lives transformed by Jesus in the Okanagan Valley".

It's summed up by the acronym R.E.A.L Life. You can find out more about our vision here - it guides everything we do!

Three Locations. One Church.

Willow Park Church is one church, with three locations - two in Kelowna and one in Lake Country. We have a variety of service times to choose from including Church Online that live streams from the Rutland (9 & 11 am) and Mission (11 am) locations, as well as our in-person services at all three of our locations.

Our approach enables us to have a large-church reach while holding onto our small-church feel, and it allows us to connect with people right where they are.

Mission (South)

Lake Country (Creekside)



What to Expect

Visiting a new church for the first time can be intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. We want to do everything we can to make your experience at Willow Park Church a good one.

Here you will find answers to the questions from visitors that we get most often. If you have any other questions that aren't covered here, please let us know by contacting us. We'd love to hear from you!

When are your worship services?

We also have various in-person services at all 3 of our locations every Sunday. We also meet at Church Online, Sundays at 9 & 11 am.

What should I wear?

We're definitely a "come as you are" sort of church. Wear whatever is comfortable to you. You'll see a lot of people in jeans, t-shirts and shorts and then again, you might also see someone dressed smartly. We don't care what you wear, we just want you to visit us. (That said, if you walk in wearing beachwear or a tuxedo, you may get some curious looks or confused questions:)

How early should I arrive?

We recommend arriving about 15 minutes before the start of the service to allow yourself time to park, come inside and find a seat. If you're checking in children (more info on that below), you may want to allow an additional 10 minutes or so.

What do I do when I get there?

After you park, you'll be met at the door by our friendly welcome team. Once inside, you are welcome to  grab a coffee. This is also the time to check-in your kids in the children's area (more info on that below).

Once you're ready, you can head into the worship centre (with your coffee, if you want) and find a seat. If you're not sure where to sit, the welcome team standing by the entrance will be happy to help you find a spot.

What do I do with my kids?

We are also offering in-person Kids Church on Sundays at 10:30 am & 5:30 pm at our Rutland location, at 10:30 am at our Mission locaton and at 10 am at our Lake Country location during our in-person services. We hope to see your kids there!

If you'd like to learn more about what we offer for our preschool, grade-school and special-needs children, visit our Kids Ministry page.

What about teenagers?

During the school year we have mid week youth programs for teens that meets Wednesday (Glow for Grades 9-12) and Thursday (Juice  for Grades 6-8) evenings.

We have a large youth group and so they also meet in their care groups every other week - they love it!

To learn more about our Youth and the other great things going on, visit our youth web site.

What's the worship service like?

Each service is different, but there are a few things you can always expect:

  • Live music that is upbeat and contemporary, though sometimes we add some traditional songs into the mix. Don't worry if you don't know the songs — we provide lyrics to make it easy to follow along. This portion of the service usually lasts about 20 minutes.
  • A message from one of our pastors that is relevant, straight-forward and applicable to life today. Whether you’re a Christ-follower or not, we think you’ll walk away with some helpful information. We also provide a space for you to take notes in case there’s something you want to remember.
  • A roomful of normal, everyday people, just like you!
