Common Questions

What will happen when I visit for the first time?

If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. As you come into the building and make your way to the main auditorium (we also often call it the Sanctuary), you’ll have someone say hello at the doorway and direct you where you need to go. From there you can then choose where you would like to sit and enjoy the service, which includes music, prayer, and a sermon from one of our pastors. The whole service usually lasts around 70 minutes.

Is there something for my children?

After praise and worship on Sunday mornings, the younger members of our congregation are invited to join the classes for their age group in Kidz Rock. Children are provided with a SAFE and FUN environment within which to learn about the Lord. A check-in/paging system is in place for your convenience and peace of mind. You may also stay with your child until he/she is comfortable.

Each week you will need to register your children for Kidz Rock, and it’s easiest to do that by visiting the Kidz Rock desk before the service starts. The first time you register there will be a form to fill out,  so you will probably want to come a few minutes early that day so you won’t be rushed.

What if I can’t come on Sundays?

  • Everyone is welcome to come to our Saturday evening services at Winnipeg South each week (except during July & August).
  • At least once a month we have a churchwide Power & Praise evening (usually a Tuesday) at various campus locations.
  • Check out Church of the Rock Online! The weekend’s service will be streamed multiple times per weekend with live chat.

What should I wear to attend your services??

When you visit us you will find people wearing whatever they are comfortable in. Some come in their casual clothes and others dress up. We are much more interested in your connecting with the church and finding a place to facilitate your spiritual needs than in what you look like or what you wear. So, “come as you are” and you will fit right in.

What is the music like?

We believe that our time with God should be a joyful experience—that’s why we call our weekend gatherings “Celebration Services!” Our praise and worship includes both high energy/upbeat music and more reflective moments and songs, and we hope that all who attend will feel free to participate as they are most comfortable.

What are the sermons like?

The weekly message is filled with practical life applications and sprinkled with humour; each message is delivered in a biblically relevant manner and will help you deal with the real everyday issues of life. What you learn on the weekend you will be able to draw upon throughout the week.

Is there an Assistive Listening System?

We have an assistive listening system to help people who have a hearing impairment.  When you visit our Winnipeg South Campus, please approach the sound desk in the center of the auditorium to sign out your receiver and headphones. Please bring identification with you.

Can I get a cup of coffee?

At our Winnipeg South Campus many people enjoy lingering after the service. This proves to be an excellent time to meet new people. When you visit, plan to join us outside the kitchen in the main foyer for coffee and conversation. You can also go to our World Cafe to purchase specialized coffee and pastries.

(Note: only water bottles are allowed in the main auditorium/sanctuary, for the sake of our custodial team.)

Is there an option for those who have sensory difficulties?

Yes there is an option for you.  Our desire is that everyone is able to enjoy our service regardless of their needs.  For those who struggle with sensory input, we offer a Low Sensory Service in a smaller room near the Sanctuary.  There you will find a quieter space with a live TV stream of the service.  There will be lower lighting and sound, as well as a scent-free environment.  This room is hosted by one of our volunteers and the noise level is kept very low to accommodate the needs of those attending.

Can I get a cup of coffee?

When you visit our Bronx Park Campus, come early to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee at the HobNobs Cafe before the service. This is a great spot for connecting and visiting.
