Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family
Here's the deal, The Campus Church cares about one thing more than anything else, and that's sharing the love and hope that's found in Jesus Christ. The Campus Church is a family of individuals and families across 3 sites who have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people in our surrounding community as possible to experience that same freedom, hope and unconditional love.
The Campus began in 1985 when Pastor David Payne and a small group of people met as 'Community Bible Church (CBC) at Devin's Drive Public School in Aurora, Ontario. Shortly after, 5 acres of land was purchased on Bathurst Street and the original church building was built amongst the pine trees in 1989. CBC grew through the 90's and an addition was added to expand the building in 2002 to increase the space for worship services, add a multi-purpose gymnasium, classrooms and office space.
As the church reached capacity, the leadership felt God's prompting to expand through multi-sites, and CBC was re-branded to 'The Campus Church' - in order to place new campuses (sites) where God prompted us to be salt & light. The original site became known as Campus Bathurst.
Our second site became Campus Bayview and was launched in 2009 in the Cineplex Odeon theatre in the central region of Aurora east of Yonge Street.
Our third site, Campus North, was launched in 2016 using King Christian School's new facility in the growing community of East Gwillimbury, about 12 mins north of Aurora.
Our hope at The Campus Church is to love and reach families and individuals in York Region with God's unconditional love, and as we seek God's leading for our next site, we will move forward in prayer and faith, always anticipating that through God's strength and provisions, the best is yet to come!
What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you are welcome just as you are at The Campus Church. No matter your faith background, your previous experiences with church, or your understanding of God, we want to walk alongside you and help you go deeper in your faith.
We look forward to meeting you and your family!
