Wellington Heights Community Church (WHCC) a multicultural community located in Wellington Heights.  WHCC is a member of Christian Community Development Association (CCDA), which is a network of Christians committed to seeing people and communities holistically restored.

At WHCC, believe that everyone is created in the image of God, with worth, value and dignity.  Here at WHCC, we are trying to embody and be, however, imperfectly, a community that points to and embodies God’s kingdom here on earth - a kingdom of justice, righteousness and shalom.  We are seeking to join God in God’s vision of the reconciliation of all things.  Individual and communally we seek to embody the whole Gospel through our ministry values: worship, reconciliation and neighborhood development.
