Welcome to Renew Meadowvale

A new job. A new school. A new chapter in a book or a new season of your favourite TV show… there’s something special about starting something new. It’s the chance for a fresh start, an opportunity to assess what has taken place and to reconsider what lies ahead.

At Renew Church, we totally get that. After serving the Meadowvale area for over 20 years now, we’ve learned a lot. You might remember us as Grace Community Church – the little church that started way back in 1998 with just 13 members. Today we have 5 churches across Canada and hundreds of people who attend services every weekend, with close to 300 just at our Meadowvale location. When we look back, almost nothing happened the way we expected, but God has a funny way of helping us to learn and grow in ways that we never plan. I’m sure you can relate to that.

In the fall of 2015, Grace merged with the Village Community Church in Milton, a church we started in 2006, to form Renew Church. It wasn’t something we had planned, but God made it clear to us that the timing was perfect and that we could accomplish much more in a collaborative effort. We have since relaunched as Renew Church – one church in multiple locations, and we continue to be amazed at what God is doing. We have already added two more sites – one in Mayfield West (North Brampton/South Caldeon) and another in Cambridge. God has placed it on the hearts of people both inside and outside of our church to reach out into new communities, and we can’t wait to see what unfolds in this latest chapter.

Maybe you’re in a place where you need a fresh start. Maybe you’re new to the community or you are looking for a fresh experience from God. If so, we’d be happy to have you journey along with us. Mississauga is a very transient area, so for as long as God has you here, we hope you’ll find a loving community to call your own and some fellow travellers who you can share your life with. At Renew, God has blessed us with warm and sacrificial people who are ready to serve you and your family. We have excellent kids and youth programs and teaching that will challenge and inspire you every Sunday.

We have a great kids program at every campus

Renew Meadowvale offers Sunday morning programs for toddlers up to high school aged children. We teach biblical and spiritual foundations using interactive learning, stories, videos, drama, games and crafts. Our specialized programs include Faith Factory (Grades K-5), MVRK Trailblazers (Jr. High) and MVRK Youth (high school). MVRK meets Tuesday evenings at our church office nearby in Meadowvale with occasional special events happening on Friday nights. Renew is committed to providing a safe environment for our children and youth. All of our volunteers are screened and follow our Plan to Protect. If you have any questions about our programs, please contact the Renew Meadowvale Children’s Director, Donna Marsala, donna@renewchurch.ca.
