A community helping people Discover and Fully Follow Jesus
Who We Are
Lakeside Church exists to help all people discover and fully follow Jesus. It’s as simple as that.
It’s been part of our DNA since 1989 when 40 families had a vision that church should be a place of spiritual growth and discovery, not just for those who already believe.
Lakeside is for everyone regardless of age, race, socioeconomic status, and background. We recognize we’re all in different stages and seasons of life, and we’re all on a journey of learning and growth. The church exists so that we can do that together.
At Lakeside, we believe everyone can
It’s a relationship.
It’s a journey towards Jesus.
You don’t have to go it alone.
We all have gifts to share.
Change the World
The future of the church lies outside our walls.

Frequently Asked Questions
We are not connected to any one denomination, rather, together in community, we are exploring how to do life with Jesus. We are continually asking, “How does my following Jesus bless and improve the world around me — my family, friends, neighbourhood, and beyond?” We’d love you to join us on this quest!
All the better! We’d love to hear what YOU have to say and what YOU believe, and we’d love to share our experience of following Jesus and how God is transforming, healing, and restoring us. We’d love to get to know YOU!
At Lakeside our emphasis is on encountering God’s incredible love for us and sharing that love with each other. We have some basic core beliefs around which we agree, but we are constantly exploring, learning, and rethinking as we navigate the interface of faith and life … together.
We’re part of an amazing community and there is no shortage of churches you could attend in the city. We’re not in competition but rather we encourage you to try a few on for size. Our hope for every person is that they find a place to call home – a place where they can ask questions, develop relationships with others, and grow in their faith. If that place, for you, is Lakeside … Welcome Home!
