Our Services

What are services like?
Each week, services and gatherings for various ages and languages take place. Details can be found on the webpages for Taiwanese, English, Mandarin, youth, and children's ministries. Sunday morning services and classes are available at Canaan for children, youth, and adults in Taiwanese, English, and Mandarin. Nursery care is provided on Sunday mornings. Several times a year (in addition to weekly Sunday lunches), the various language groups and age groups of Canaan participate together in all-church celebrations and activities, including all-church worship services to celebrate baptisms, children's summer camp, missions trips, and an all-church weekend retreat.

What is the community like?
Canaan is home to people with a diversity of backgrounds. You will find a mix of Taiwanese and non-Taiwanese, first and second generation immigrants and beyond, across a spectrum of ages and life stages: seniors, children, youth, young adults, singles, couples, and families. Members come from communities and schools all over the Bay Area. At Canaan, you might meet an engineer, a stay-at-home parent, a doctor, a student, a widow, a divorcee, someone between jobs, a person with disabilities or special needs, a restaurant worker, an entrepreneur, a teacher, an artist, or a salesperson. Similarly, you will find people with a variety of faith backgrounds: people who do not consider themselves religious, people who have been following Christ for a long time, people who are the first in their circle of family and friends to call themselves Christian, people with backgrounds or family histories of other beliefs, and people who come from families with a long legacy of Christian faith. We worship and gather in Taiwanese, English, or Mandarin. Many members eventually have multiple family members and generations participating in various language and age ministries at Canaan.
