Who We Are

Who We Are

We are West Village Saanich, an Expression of West Village Church in Victoria that was planted Easter 2017 out of our Westshore Expression in Langford.

The story of our Saanich Expression began in 2015 when Robin and Leanne Martens gathered 8 people, including themselves, into their living room. It was there that this core group prayerfully discerned that Jesus was leading them to start a new church in their district. Even though they had many unanswered questions they were unanimous about taking the next step, one of many that followed in the direction planting a new church.

From that day onward they led a growing group to be Jesus’ church in their part of Victoria. Over 2015-16 the core group grew to about 40 adults plus children, and they realized that the time had come, that God was calling them to launch for Easter 2017 in the Landmark Cinemas (University Heights Mall), in Gordon Head near UVic.

Our conviction as Jesus' people continues to be that Jesus saves people, changes them, and then uses them. No matter where they are from or what they know, he has a desire to be known in the lives of people.
