The Halifax Stanfield International Airport worship centre, located on the second level (mezzanine) of the terminal building, is a unique service that meets the many needs of the airport community and the travelling public. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this non-denominational facility offers a calm, reflective atmosphere in the midst of a busy airport.
The worship centre is an integral part of our airport community, helping with everything from providing a quiet place of prayer to reuniting runaway teens and their families. The worship centre provides many essential services to our community, such as spiritual counseling, crisis intervention, grief/loss counselling, stress management, addiction counselling, memorials/weddings, and bible studies (individual or group).
