Small Groups

Life and faith are not meant to be walked alone and Jesus’ ministry is an example of that. Our Small Groups are a way of living out our purpose, both as individuals and as a collective group of believers—to be the church. As believers, we share a common foundation of faith and have been called to live out that faith in a relational community, that is our Small Groups.

We have a variety of Small Groups that meet throughout Richmond and at different times of the week. Each of the groups are unique with their own characteristics! If you’re interested in joining a Small Group, let’s get in touch today.

Salt and Light Teens Fellowship

We're SALT - nope, not the kind you use in the kitchen! We’re the youngest fellowship (high schoolers) in the ICRC family and we strive to live out our namesake— be salt and light in our own little worlds for the glory of Jesus Christ! SALT fellowship is a place where Christian high schoolers come together to fellowship with each other and with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It’s a hang-out where we gather to praise God, have Bible Studies, prayer and sharing times, play games, dig deep into everyday issues and enjoy the company of each other in the Christian faith. We meet on Friday nights at 7:30pm every week! For inquiries on SALT, please email hello@icrc.ca.


God is Good! One of our members of SALT (Shane) put together a video showing how the fellowship still had an amazing year, seeking God and building bonds. May it give you hope going forward, God bless!

Youth Bible Class

The Youth Bible Class is an English speaking class that is geared towards high school students. The class meets at 10:15am on Sundays alongside the Mandarin Service.

Together, we worship God through singing songs, sharing, reading scripture, learning truths about the Bible and group discussions.

Children’s Ministries

We welcome you to come and participate in the following activities for your children. The goal of each is to teach Bible truths so that children will have knowledge of the salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Activities are mainly in English.)

Children's Sunday School

The Sunday school program in the same church provides children’s classes. Through various interactive activities, songs and handicrafts, our teachers strive to help children strengthen their confidence and develop a Christian character. Through weekly Bible lessons and verses, it also encourages the growth of biblical knowledge. Our goal is to equip children with the tools they need to establish and develop a personal relationship with Jesus.

Children’s Sunday School classes for kids in pre-school to grade 6 run at the same time every week at 10:15a.am and 11:30 a.m. Sunday School is held in the classrooms upstairs.

Vacation Bible School

Every summer, the adults and teens of ICRC put their efforts together to transform the church into a Vacation Bible School for children. VBS is a 5-day event every year that is centred around a theme. It’s always amazing to see the helping hands coming together to create this environment and how excited children can be to learn more about God.

  • dancing and praising God through songs
  • listening to Bible lessons and trusting Jesus
  • getting wild and (sometimes) wet in games
  • connecting fun experiments or crafts to the Bible truths
  • eating together and taking pictures which will refresh memories with delight even 20 years after

Sharing and teaching God’s love is something we love to do at ICRC. So if your child is from preschool to Grade 7, we would love for them to have this opportunity to learn about God with us! Don’t miss the learning, friendship and fun that happens at VBS.

When: a 5-day camp sometime in July or August

Wearing their non-scary costumes, children are engaged in 2-4 hours of fun activities collecting sweets in their bags and stamps in their booklet. These stamps are then redeemed for prizes.

Heavenly Praise Choir

The Heavenly Praise Choir is a four-part SATB choir who sing a wide variety that include traditional favourites as well as classical, gospel and more contemporary pieces. We sing during the English service (except the first Sunday of the month) as a part of the worship service.

We sing to share messages of praise, reverent worship, testimony, encouragement, comfort, thankfulness, and perseverance through the songs that we sing. Choral anthems often have lyrics that are full of scripture and of Biblical truth, so we sing to share a message in song that is full of meaning when it is amplified by the marriage of music and lyrics.

We are always looking to add new members to the choir. We have guidelines for those who would like to join the choir and require an audition for singing in the choir. If you would like to join us for practices or to observe, feel free to reach us at hello@icrc.ca.
