Canyon Heights Community Church/Christian Assembly
North Vancouver, B.C. Canada

Canyon Heights is the area in the District of North Vancouver that is near the top of Capilano Road, at the base of Grouse Mountain.  It is here that in 1950 a temporary building was placed as the start of Canyon Heights Christian Assembly.  The first services were in the form of a Sunday School.

The first permanent building was constructed on this site in 1965.  It was built by Gordon Millhouse and dedicated on Easter Sunday of that year. (REF.)

A new church was built in 1971.  Renovations were added in 1985, making it 2 1/2 times the size.  It was at this time that the triangular stained glass window was place at the peak in the Sanctuary. It was installed by artist Gordon Munro. (REF.)

Other additions were a Christian daycare in the year 2000 and Leaping Calf Coffee in 2003. (REF.) The coffee house was upgraded in 2011 and is called the The Capilano Grind Coffee and Bakehouse. The cosy dark wood coffee house is open to the public from 9am to 2 pm Sunday to Tuesday.  The staff includes a hired barista and as well as the Office Administrator on weekdays and the Pastor on Sundays.

In 1914 Canyon Heights Christian Assembly changed the name of the church to Canyon Heights Community Church.  A Sunday worship service with a children's ministry is held at 10:30 am.  Teen and youth ministry is held at 6:30pm on Friday nights. (Link.)
