Church relocates to movie theatre

NANAIMO – Genesis Christian Centre partners with Galaxy Cinemas to host weekly worship.

Genesis Christian Centre has relocated its Sunday services to its new home, the Galaxy Cinemas in Nanaimo North Town Centre.

After Nanaimo school district decided to relocate its Learn at Home programs to Mount Benson Elementary School in September, the existing tenants vacated earlier this year.

This meant that the Genesis congregation needed to find a new place for its worship services.

During the summer months, services were held at the Departure Bay Activity Centre while the church searched for a longer-term location.

The relocation effort has recently culminated with the selection of Galaxy Cinemas as the new Sunday meeting place.

According to a press release, the leadership at Genesis Christian Centre is very excited about the arrangement and believes the theatre will provide an excellent meeting venue and platform for future growth.

Now that the search for a new home is over, Genesis is happy to refocus on the growth of its community and the families that call the church home.

For those wishing to attend Genesis Christian Centre, the group meets every Sunday at 10 a.m. at the Galaxy Cinemas located at 4750 Rutherford Rd.
