Vancouver CCM Centre

In 1999, the Crystal development project in Metrotown, Burnaby was made known to CCM Canada. With the generous support of many churches, the CCM Centre was built and started serving the community at the present location in September 2000. It occupies 13,000 sq. ft. on the 2nd floor of the Crystal Mall which is centrally located and easily accessible by public transportation. Inside the premises, we have a counseling centre, bookroom, youth centre, art gallery and multipurpose facilities for worship service, program for seniors, women, children and youth, video and movie as well as large-scale community and cultural activities.

Calgary CCM Centre

Since its inception in 1992, the Calgary CCM Centre (formerly called Calgary Service Centre) has been sharing the spirit of Christ’s love within the Chinese community. It has provided services to meet the needs of the Chinese, helped people to deal with problems in their lives, and attended to their spiritual needs.

In the early years, Calgary CCM Centre provided basic services for new immigrants such as settlement and referral information, English classes, citizenship classes, life skills seminars, and seniors’ teatimes. Later on, we added pre-school classes, after-school and summer tutoring, as well as children’s Bible classes. In 1998, with the donation of several computers, we began to offer computer skills courses.

In 1999, with the encouragement of a physician, we started a support group for parents who had children with special needs. It provided an opportunity for the parents to share their problems and to support each other. We were able to share the gospel with them so that, in their distress, they were directed to the light of Christ.

In 2001, following the example of several Toronto communities, we set up a cancer prevention and care fellowship. We are currently recruiting volunteers from churches to provide services for cancer patients and their families, with the hope of sharing the gospel.
