Curve Lake Christian Assembly is a community of Indigenous People and Settlers who meet regularly to celebrate our Creator's reconciling love as revealed in Jesus Christ. We meet at the Curve Lake Church at the intersection of Mississauga Street and Winookeedaa Street. Continue reading to learn more about our identity, meetings, special events, and leaders!
Curve Lake Christian Assembly has existed since the 1990s, when it was started by a group of First Nations leaders eager to see God minister to our community. It has gone through a number of transitions since then, but continues to value heartfelt worship, biblical preaching, and regular fellowship together. You can like our Facebook page, join us at a meeting, or get in touch with our pastors below if you want to learn more!
Throughout the pandemic we have been following government guidance concerning our meetings. As of February 2022, both our Sunday gatherings and Wednesday Bible Studies are taking place in person with safety measures in place, but we offer the option to join online for those who prefer it. You can check our Facebook Page or email Ben to access the Google Meet information.
Sunday Worship Gathering
9:30-11:00 AM on Sundays at Curve Lake Church
Join us as we worship and reflect on God's word together, as well as celebrating communion on the first Sunday and birthdays on the last Sunday each month. Please note that as long as COVID-19 is a risk, participants are asked to bring their own communion elements when relevant.
Wednesday Bible Study
7:00-8:30 PM on Wednesdays at Curve Lake Church
Join us as we pray for one another and take a close look at passages that tie in with our Sunday sermons. Stick around for some food and fellowship afterwards!

Ben and his wife Shoshanna have served with local church, campus, and camp ministries since 2010. In October 2019, our former pastor, George Budd, invited Ben to serve alongside him and gradually take over the reigns. As of 2021, Ben is the sole pastor at CLCA. Alongside his work at Curve Lake he provides spiritual support and leadership for students at Trent University and helps with camps and other youth outreach activities at the invitation of Cree Christians in Mistissini and Nemaska, Quebec.
