Robertson -Wesley is home to a vibrant, inclusive community near the funky 124th Street area of Edmonton, (sandwiched between the Glenora and Oliver neighbourhoods). Many people gather at this historic red brick building to carry out God's work in a variety of ways. R-W is a place to grow spiritually through programs for children, youth, young adults and seniors. The senior choir, handbell choir and guest musicians provide music for Sunday morning worship and special concerts. In addition to Sunday morning worship, there are alternative worship services on Sunday evenings.The Outreach committee holds monthly community dinners, sponsors refugees and assists other social agencies. A variety of study opportunities facilitate thought-provoking theological exploration. Both the Cantilon Choir and the Alberta Baroque Ensemble practice and perform in the acoustical excellence of the sanctuary. Many other groups, such as Alcoholic Anonymous, make R-W their meeting place. The Memorial Hall was built after the war to honour our veterans and encourage fellowship.
