Here because we love this city.
Because we believe there's a better way.
Because we have so much to learn.
Intentionally Sundays at 5pm.
And 24/7 all over the place.
Dish With One Spoon / Treaty 3 (1792)
We acknowledge and celebrate our presence on ancestral Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee land. We respect the longstanding relationships with the local Indigenous communities: the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation and the Six Nations of the Grand River.
Part of the
New Leaf Network
In 2012 a group of people in Ancaster began to work towards the start of a new church community. Our early days were spent gathering at the Coach & Lantern Pub in Ancaster Village. Our desire to love and serve the community of Ancaster was birthed in those early days and led us to put down our roots in the Village. These days we gather intentionally once a week at the old Parish Hall on Halson Street and are aptly named, Ancaster Village Church. We continue to try and figure out ways to serve this great community.
We're a small church comprised of mostly young families. We are becoming a people who are learning to love Jesus more fully, a people who love others, who live on mission, who share our stories, who live God's kingdom, of ridiculous generosity, who serve locally and globally, who value simplicity, and who laugh, play, cry, and live life together.
AVC's leadership team is comprised of women and men who are tasked with providing leadership, oversight, and administration for the church. AVC is also a part of a national denomination of churches.
Sometimes we have our own things to which you're invited.
Sometimes we work collaboratively with others and cross promote.
And sometimes we support things that already exist.
No matter what, you can find them all listed here.
