Plan A Visit

Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit to Northgate

Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Northgate a great one!


Northgate meets for worship and teaching every Sunday morning at 10:00am.

What can I expect?

How long is a service?

Our services are about 60 minutes in length. We begin with the band leading us in worship, with lyrics projected onto the screen. Some people sing along and other people enjoy listening; we want you to engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. Services also include an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What's the culture like at Northgate?

Sunday's at Northgate are casual, relaxed and sometimes unexpected! Come as you are and be welcomed as our guest.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Northgate Kids Connect, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our kids programs the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra 5 minutes to get signed in for the Kids Connect experience. Kids Connect or Nursery is offered every Sunday morning for kids ages infant through Grade 5.
