Connecting with one of our Capstone House Churches is a great way to meet new people in your church family, build on Pastor Rob’s teaching from Sunday morning, encourage one another in prayer and enjoy some great food. When these small groups meet each week, they seek to live out the Five Pillars of our church: Worship, Discipleship, Evangelism, Justice and Fellowship.
While some House Churches may worship through music or communion, all House Churches worship through prayer and devotion.
Discipleship occurs as groups engage in guided study, but it also occurs as groups put what they are learning into practice and as individuals sharpen each other in the same way that iron sharpens iron.
Evangelism and Justice happens through word and deed as our House Churches interact with their physical communities, reaching out with the Good News of the Gospel of Christ.
Fellowship is one of the great benefits of House Churches, which often become the primary method of care and compassion, encouragement, and all-around support for those who participate.
There are currently five Capstone House Churches across the GTA:

Our goal is to see all of Capstone’s attendees involved in and committed to a House Church. This is a big goal! If you are not part of a House Church, please consider joining one in the coming weeks, or simply visiting one to see them in action.
Watch for more House Churches to begin over the coming months. If you’re interested in attending one of these House Churches, please contact us below. If there isn’t a House Church in your neighbourhood, we encourage you to talk with Pastor Rob about starting one!
Two thousand years ago, the church typically met in people’s homes with a single-minded focus on accomplishing the mandates of worship, discipleship, evangelism and fellowship. Will you join us in that effort once again?
