History

VAPC has been growing for over 40 years.  The original Church was erected in 1972. The present Sanctuary was added in 1988. The congregation has grown, thrived and matured along with Calgary. It now draws members from across the northwest sector of the city.

In early 2010, VAPC grew again in faith and capacity. A second floor addition completed the congregation’s long-term vision to create facilities that meet the congregation’s needs and also accommodate community uses.

On the main floor, the kitchen, nursery, choir room, and Scott Hall have expanded. The second floor is equipped with meeting and lounge areas, a library, offices and classrooms along with a kitchenette and washrooms. An elevator makes the second floor accessible to all.

The expansion offers practical benefits to the congregation and the community: banquet facilities have been expanded and improved, the nursery has been broken into smaller age groupings and new the Sunday School spaces and the youth room provide great spaces for animated and active interaction.

The new spaces allow concurrent use of the building by various groups. In addition to the usual church-related meetings and music practices, our rooms are used by groups such as ESL classes, book clubs, support groups, and TOPS, to name just a few. We are delighted that our Sanctuary is blessed by weekly worship services of the Ebenezer Korean Presbyterian Church.
