Sponsoring Churches

We invite students to be involved in challenges and reflection that encourage Christian growth. Homeroom devotionals, chapel services, guest speakers and performers provide opportunities to worship God and to think about the vital questions of life. We recognize the importance of the church in our students’ lives. School and church complement each other.

The positive relationship between Westgate Mennonite Collegiate and the churches is extremely valuable to both. Westgate has long been seen as an extension of the church and we strive to continue partnering with church communities to raise the next generation to be people of God. People with a background of independent Christian school education are strongly represented among our church leaders and active church members. The school needs the church for support, as a sounding board, and as a body to whom the school is accountable.

Since a supportive relationship is firmly established between Westgate Mennonite Collegiate and the Mennonite Church Manitoba churches of Winnipeg, and since we recognize the fundamental importance of such a relationship between school and church, we encourage our students to be involved in church activities. In particular, we encourage them to join parents and friends in the programs offered by their home churches, to participate in youth activities, and to join choirs and church clubs.
