Home Church

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.

compassion

Following the example of Jesus, we 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. We are 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.

Our story

The Meeting House Alliston began in 1997 as Faith Community Church. Throughout the years we have been inspired by the life and teaching of Jesus, and strive together to live the Jesus way of life.  We also belong to a group of churches known as BIC Canada. The Meeting House and the BIC encourage us, support us, and help 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 out these links:
