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.

Ancaster exists on the Treaty 3 (1792) lands of the 

Haudenosaunee Six Nations people.

We are learning what it means to be good stewards of these shared lands. And we are committed to reconciliation.


Part of the

New Leaf Network

of Churches


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.

For many years we have supported our town's annual festival by providing its chair, board members, volunteers, and finances. We're so glad it's back for 2022!

265 Wilson Street East, Ancaster

Ryerson United Church and Ancaster Village Church are exited to partner together to offer this interactive and educational workshop to our community. The exercise is based on using Indigenous methodologies and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance.
