Life was never intended to be lived in isolation. That's why our Home Churches meet regularly throughout the year and share life together. Home Church provides a safe place to journey through life and discover the love of God in a community that is invested in seeing real change take place.
Meeting in groups of 5-15, Home Churches focus on providing adults with an environment to study the Bible, share life, and pray for each other.
You're welcome to join a group anytime throughout the year.
At this time, Home Churches are paused for the summer. Signups for fall of 2018 will start on September 9, and Home Churches will kickoff the week of September 24.
Following the example of Jesus, we at Faith want to be known as those who come alongside to support, care for, and encourage each other. We financially support missionaries, who in turn care for people beyond our immediate reach. Faith Cares is here to offer support, and to help you know that you are not alone. If we can be of support to you, please let us know. CLICK for our contact details.
Faith Community Church was started in 1997 by a few families with a desire to celebrate God in the town of Alliston. Throughout the years we have been inspired by the life and teaching of Jesus, and strive together to live the Jesus way of life. One unique aspect of Faith, is that we regularly use video teaching from a church called The Meeting House. This enables us to explore the teachings of Jesus on a Sunday morning, and it also frees our Pastor up to be more involved in our much larger community of Alliston.
We are a part of an extended family of churches, known as BIC Canada. The BIC encourages us, supports us, and helps us be the best version of us that we can be. If you’re interested in learning more about BIC Canada or about The Meeting House, check them out!
