2800 Mountain Highway

New Life Christian Centre
North Vancouver, B.C. Canada

North Vancouver District records indicate that a the Pentecostal Assemblies applied for a Building Permit for New Life Christian Centre  in June 1973.  The planned cost of the building was $192,000.  An permit for an addition was applied for in 1981.  The results is a two story church with the Sanctuary on the first floor.


The front doors to the right of the tall cross lead to the Narthex and Sanctuary. The Chancel in the front of the Sanctuary is backed by a horizontal laminate beam.  A center canopy is the origin of draperies leading to and wrapping the laminated beam. Wrapping the front center Chancel are banks of light wooden pews.  The curve of pews is repeated in the curve of the balcony as well as its pews.

Note the flag of Israel on the left side of the Chancel.  The church has been a long time supporter of Israel.

Worship through music and song are a large part of services.  This is facilitated by the wall mounted speakers and space for the numerous musical instruments.  A large center screen providing lyrics unites the congregation in song.

Behind the large center screen is access to a view of the second floor full immersion baptismal font.


Adjacent to and with access from the west side of the Sanctuary is the Encounter Room.

New Life Christian Centre

Previous to being at this location at 2800 Mountain Highway in the District of North Vancouver, the church was at 124th West 8th Street in the central area of the City of North Vancouver.  (See Blog Post 7/1/12.)  The name of the church at that time was Elim Pentecostal Chapel.  In 1986  it was changed to New Life Christian Centre.
