There are many opportunities for fellowship in the daily life of YPBC. There are so many things that God is doing in the life of our church, and in the hearts of it’s people.

Fellowship abounds in these many tasks like Life Groups and Bible Study and our many outreach organizations. The following are some of our other organized, mid-week fellowship groups that may be of interest to you. For more fellowship opportunities please check out News and Events regularly. Review the opportunities below and drop Robyn an email if you have any questions.

Singing Praises Life Group

Every 3rd Saturday, 5:00-7:00 pm @ Belmont House

Mary Han, Phaby Utomo

With a mission and objective to relay God’s heart to people, and to connect communities and families, we gather once a month to sing praises at Belmont House. Every third Saturday we meet from 5-7 pm. We start with our fellowship and prayers to align our hearts and voices. Then we move to the floor where our senior community resides, to host a praise worship with residents, staff and families. Our members have Doctor of Musical Arts (D.M.A.) in music but we also have some who can’t read music; we only want your commitment to keep singing praises. We sing thirteen times a year (twice in December as we sing on Christmas day too). Annually, we gather together for a day of spiritual retreat to reflect, reboot and renew. To improve our singing, we meet 4 times a year for music boot camp with food, fun and fellowship. Join us to sing praises to the Lord together.

Parent Group

Are you frazzled from trying to hold everything together whilst making lunches, helping with homework, attending everything, and pleasing everyone?!
Is there any time or energy left to tend to your soul? Your relationships? 
Well we don't want to add anything more to your "To Do" or "To Go" list, but if you would like to spend a few minutes on a Sunday morning with other parents in the same boat, learning, praying, and commiserating together, we'll begin meeting Sunday mornings from 10:00-10:45 in the Youth Room, resuming September 16. 

Childcare is provided.  If your child is between the ages of 4 and 12 they are welcome to attend the Chorister's choir practice running simultaneously. If they are under 4 feel free to bring them along to play quietly while we meet.

Are you living life to the full? Are you experiencing all of the fullness and joy that Jesus promised when he said that he came so that we might "have life, and have it to the full"?

If you're not in a hurry to get home on Sundays, we invite you to grab lunch (or bring something from home) and hang out with other people interested in discovering life to the fullest through faith in Jesus.

Bay St. Life Group

Fridays @ 6 pm Friendship Room YPBC

Nikhil & Mary

Bay Street Life Group is a small group that gathers weekly on Fridays from 6-7:30 pm (Friendship room). We have been on a journey together starting with Job’s loss of all his wealth and family on earth to how he turns out having exceptional wealth and a new family on earth and in heaven. Then we went through mountains and valleys with Joshua and David, back in the days to Peter, James and Paul. In front of the fireplace, we quietly read many private letters from Paul to his friends and churches in Philippi etc. We started in an upper room in Jerusalem and will wind up on our way to the ends of the earth. You are welcome to join us in this life journey together. As in life, we also enjoy fellowship, regular social dinners, annual apple picking outings and spiritual retreat. It would also be a great opportunity to invite family, friends, colleagues, co-workers and neighbours to join us.

If you have any questions please email Robyn
