A spiritual renewal in Milton
The Village Community Church has joined forces with a church in Mississauga and will be launching under a new name this month.
The Milton church, which is known for its distinct meeting place in the local movie theatre, recently merged with Meadowvale’s Grace Community Church. The pair will now be known as Renew Church and will celebrate the change locally during the Milton Easter service on March 27.
“Merging has allowed us to apply the best of our resources to both sites, and as part of that we wanted to rebrand and unify as one church,” said Milton campus pastor Marek Kowalsky.
He explained, “The Village Church was originally formed by a team sent to Milton by Grace Community Church, and over the years we’ve considered how these two churches could work together more closely. Now that we have two more established churches, each with a talented and passionate group of leaders and volunteers, we began to dream about what we might do together.”
He noted that a number of Meadowvale members have moved to Milton, so the merger seemed to make a lot of sense.
