First Time

Come on in!

We’re glad you’re here!

Lakeside is a community helping people discover and fully follow Jesus. It’s a place where you can be yourself without fear of judgment or condemnation, and we hope you feel like this is a place you can belong. You can wear what you’d like.

We have Sunday morning gatherings in two locations – our main campus (Lakeside Central) and our downtown campus (Lakeside Downtown). At both locations, we’ve got music and a message. We’ve also got an engaging children’s program for kids up to Grade 5. Students in Grades 6-8 also have their own gathering at our main campus.

At Lakeside Central, we have our main auditorium as well as a Cafe venue if you prefer to sit at a table or you’re just not sure about this whole “church thing” yet. It’s a casual and comfortable way to check out Lakeside.

Both locations also have coffee — of course!

And if you’re still not sure you’re ready to meet us in person, that’s OK. We live stream the message from our main campus every Sunday.

When you’re ready to stop by, we’ll be waiting!

Lakeside Central

7654 Conservation Road, Guelph, ON — 10:00 a.m.

When you arrive, come in the second driveway (just past the sign). There will be friendly volunteers in brightly coloured vests waiting to help you park. If you need to drop someone off at the front door or you need to park in one of our special needs spots, just put on your left signal and we’ll take care of you!

When you enter the main doors, hang a right and the auditorium is at the end of the hall. You will pass the Cafe (where you can grab a coffee to take into service) as well as the washrooms, which are along the wall next to the Cafe.

FAMILIES WITH KIDS | If you’ve got kids up to Grade 5 who want to check out the Kids program, when you enter through the main doors, keep walking straight toward the big orange sign that says Lakeside Kids. From there, our friendly check-in volunteers (wearing orange lanyards) can help you check your children in to the program. If you’d like, you can register your children ahead of time by clicking here.

Lakeside Downtown

75 Norfolk Street, Guelph, ON — 10:30 a.m. beginning with coffee in the CafĂ© at 10:00 a.m.
