Trinity Western House to open in Fort Langley
On Cranberry Festival Day this Saturday, October 8, Trinity Western University is inviting the Fort Langley community to an open house to celebrate the official opening of Trinity Western House, a community meeting place in the heart of Fort Langley.
Trinity Western House, previously known as The Bedford House, is located at 9272 Glover Road, adjacent to the Fraser River and opposite the Fort Pub and Grill. Both TWU students and Fort Langley residents are invited to come and enjoy this public space to study, bring a coffee and visit with friends, watch TWU sporting events on big screen TVs, or learn more about TWU.
“This is a new concept for Canadian universities and the first university community house of its kind in the Lower Mainland,” says Scott Fehrenbacher, Senior Vice President of External Relations for TWU. “We have worked closely with the Township on the development of this space and are excited for this new strengthened partnership with our community.”
Trinity Western House will be open 12:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. on Tuesday to Sunday and will have staff and volunteers on site each day. It includes a large room with a capacity for up to 30 people and a smaller community room, the Spartan Faithful Lounge, with space for up to 16 people to meet or watch livestreaming of TWU sports events. In addition, there are patio tables to extend the seating outside. Food and drinks are not sold on site, but visitors are welcome to bring food and drinks with them to enjoy at Trinity Western House.
The future vision for Trinity Western House includes plans for this space to help foster a bigger live local music scene with outdoor concerts facing the river or indoor coffee house style concerts to showcase local talent.
