Welcome to Renew Milton


I still laugh every time we pass a Cineplex movie theatre and our kids say, “Look a church!” I hope that after a visit to Renew Milton you’ll be looking at church in a whole new way too. The Milton campus of Renew Church has been meeting at the Milton Cineplex since 2006, (formerly as the Village Community Church, and now part of a multisite movement of churches across the GTA). Why meet in a movie theatre? While the big screen and big sound enable us to deliver an engaging Sunday experience, our true motivation is to break down the barriers that have traditionally stood in the way of an authentic faith in Jesus. That’s why you won’t see a dress code or other superficial rules at Renew Milton. That’s also the reason we list our start-time as 10:07am; we love our community and the connections that take place when we linger for a few extra minutes in the lobby. And finally, that’s why we emphasize a down-to-earth and relevant approach to solid biblical teaching.

The truth is it really doesn’t matter where we meet because church is not a place, it’s a community … and God has brought together an amazing group of people right here in Milton. I’d love for you to meet them, and they would be happy to serve you a Starbuck’s coffee and show you around on a Sunday morning. The invitation is always open, we hope you’ll visit us soon. See you at the movies!

– Marek Kowalsky, Campus Pastor

We have a great kids program at every campus

Renew Milton offers Sunday morning programs for toddlers up to middle school aged children. We teach biblical and spiritual foundations using interactive learning, stories, videos, drama, games and crafts. Our Parents’ Lounge provides a quiet environment where parents with infants can watch a simulcast of the service. Teens participate in our MVRK Youth program which meets Tuesday evenings at our church office in Meadowvale, plus 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 Milton Children’s Director, Kathy Gaglardi, kathy@renewchurch.ca.

3 WAYS TO GET CONNECTED AT RENEW

If you’re new to faith or just checking it out, coming back to church after some time away, or looking for a new church, then we’d like to offer you three options for getting plugged-in to our church family:

FIND OUT

Join us for an information session to learn more about Renew Church – hear about our history, our vision, our values, and feel free to ask us any questions you like. Info sessions take place once a month before the service.

HELP OUT

Attend a volunteer orientation to learn how you can get involved in a Sunday morning ministry team – it’s a great way to meet people and learn more about Renew. Volunteer orientations take place once a month before the service.

HANG OUT

Try out a Renew Group – explore faith in a relaxed, conversational environment in a group of 8-12 people who get together once a week. We offer an introductory group that runs for an 8-week period.

Please contact us for more information about how you can Find Out, Help Out or Hang Out at your local Renew campus:
