I'm new to Richview

Welcome to Richview Church. We meet on Sundays at our Richview Campus to explore Jesus’ message of grace and hope as we apply the ancient truths of scripture to our culture and everyday lives.


So whether you have just begun to investigate this man called, Jesus, or would classify yourself as “well-seasoned” in your faith, all are welcomed and our goal is to support you as you walk on this journey.


What time is the worship services?

10:30 a.m.  Be sure to come early to register your kids into their programs and find parking off of Clement Rd. There is always free coffee and tea available.

 

How long are worship services?

Worship services typically last about 75 minutes. Following Sunday morning services, people are invited to enjoy connecting with each other in the Lobby or the Q&A Cafe. On many Sundays there is an invitation to stay in the auditorium for extended prayer or worship, though this is completely optional. Children need to be picked up by parents/guardians immediately at the close of the morning service.


Where do I take my children?

We have a Welcome Centre in the Lobby. Welcome materials and personnel are available to assist you and to make your family’s visit safe and fun! 


What if I have a baby?

Richview is bustling with babies! We have an excellent nursery program and facilities, well-staffed with caring volunteers. Nursery care is available to you even on your first visit to Richview. Come to the Welcome Centre in the Lobby to receive instructions and register your child. Of course, if you wish to keep your baby with you during the service, you are welcome to do so.


Is there a dress code?

No. Our desire is for people to feel comfortable “as they are” when they come to worship. We have people who attend in every style of clothing, from more formal attire to completely casual.


What is the music like?

We have eight rotating worship leaders who lead us through God-centered, band led, upbeat and very lively worship music. This is usually a combination of current songs and a few classic hymns. You are welcome to stand, sit, kneel, dance, sing or observe as you feel comfortable participating.


What is the teaching like?

Our main teacher/preacher is Joe Boyachek, who holds a Masters of Divinity and a Doctorate of Church Leadership. Pastor Joe presents Bible teaching with humor, wisdom and boldness. Other pastors or special guests are invited to speak throughout the year and all teachers take care to address the diverse audience of seekers, skeptics, strugglers and believers.


If I'm new to Richview, will I be centered out?

Not at all! We have many visitors each week who join our worship services so you won’t be alone. You also won’t be asked to identify yourself but we do offer information for those who would like to know more, request contact from the church or get involved in our programs. We are an all ages, all nations church.


But we don’t want you to stop here. Richview also offers relevant, high-energy mid-week programs for Jr. High and High School students, and a Young Adult engineered program on Sunday afternoons in the loft.


During the week, many "Richview-ers" also connect in Community Groups (small groups) that meet in homes, to extend friendships, to have intentional faith-based conversation and to support each other intimately on their spiritual journey.


Sunday mornings are only the beginning and drop-in on our next newcomer's reception. Check out all of the programs and classes that happen throughout the week. Thinking of serving? Whatever your skills and passion, don’t hesitate at the opportunity to impact your local and global community.


Getting Connected

HOW DO I GET CONNECTED AT RICHVIEW?

We host several entry level opportunities each month that allow you to get to know others, but if you really want to speed up the process get into a 'community group' or 'serve' on a team. Below are some of the great ways to meet some new faces, and get a glimpse of who we are and what were about.

  • Monthly Hymn Sings - 6pm every 3rd Sunday night at the 'theatre' room on the Residence main floor.
  • Community Groups - gatherings of ten to twenty people that gather each week in homes around Etobicoke and the surrounding area to study the Bible, pray, and support one another.
