Who we are

Who are we?

PAXnorth is a community of emerging followers of Jesus Christ in the North End of Halifax. We are seeking to become a church that is diverse in culture, ages and backgrounds. We are developing a church that reflects and serves the neighbourhood that surrounds it.

What to wear?

This is an easy one. We want you to come dressed in what makes you comfortable. Dress casually. We all come on equal footing. No one is better than another, or less than another. Dress shoes or sandals, shirts or t-shirts, we are all coming to grow.

What to expect?

We know that going to a new place for the first time can often be an uneasy experience. To help, this is what you can expect when you come to PAXnorth: People will show up before our gathering time to grab a coffee and meet those who are here. We will start off with an ‘expression of worship’- (scripture reading, or a song by the band), then an intro to the focus for our worship. We will develop a variety of worship ‘types’, all of which will reflect the culture in which we live.

Near the beginning of our gathering we will have a sermon or message that is grounded in the Bible and is designed to help you understand God, who we are and the world in which we live. We will seek to respond to the Word of God in directed ways: communion, prayer, giving, music, and other expressions of worship. The service will end with a prayer of blessing and thanksgiving. After our gathering time we want you to feel comfortable to hang out and talk and meet new people.
