Ever since her beginnings, Montreal has known religion. Her roots are founded in it. Her architecture houses it. Her people speak it. Yet in the heart of this great city is a desire for more than religion. In this city only a few decades ago a ‘silent revolution’ occurred where people abandoned the church religion and moved the society towards her very secular posture, where Montreal stands right now. But secularization does not satisfy or awaken the spiritual heartbeat found within each and every individual alive on planet earth. Only a RESURGENCE of Jesus can do this. In a life-giving environment, hearts are reawakened and the church can become a place for gathering followers of Jesus, and those who have lost their way, back home together in true community. Alongside many other great churches in thiscitywe will bring Jesus and His Church to front andcentreof everyday life.
This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn’t throw a brick without breaking a church window. Yet I was told you are going to build one more…
