Being part of something that matters is exciting for me. Maybe it’s the same for you. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? It’s being part of something where I know I matter and where others matter as well. Where we’re seen, heard, connected and find our purpose, together. This is so much of what…

Alpha or Home Church: What’s the Right Fit for You?

Are you familiar with the 401 highway running through Toronto? It has two parts to it – the express lanes and the collectors.

Home Church Hesitation

Trying something new, or trying something again that didn’t go so well the first time around, can be a stretch. And, since we can be honest in church, sometimes the idea of trying something new with people we don’t even know can feel like more than we’re willing to try. But with Home Church, that’s…

Life is Messy. Make Time for Connection.

There’s a lot that goes on throughout your week, right? Yup, mine too. And of course, within all of that there are great moments and then there are messy moments. Sometimes when the mess hits, one of the greatest things is that we can be part of a community of others who can walk through…
