What draws people to Charleswood? Some of the lay leaders and staff named diverse worship with a variety of music styles based on themes (e.g. Jazz, Dixiland, Beatles, contemporary) and a long-term pastorate with their minister, Michael Wilson, who provides excellent preaching, pastoral care and visioning. Others named the multiple, weekly programs where people can connect and become involved.
I found a spirit of enthusiasm. They said that they are a permission-giving church, willing to try new things. People look forward to attending and supporting worship and events. They run a surplus budget regularly and are able to hire multiple staff to meet new dreams and visions.
