Curve Lake Christian Assembly is a community of Indigenous and Settler Christians 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!
As of June 20th, we will be returing to in-person meetings in correspondence with the Ontario reopening plan. The option to join via Google Meet will still be available for anyone who cannot come in person. You can check our Facebook Page or email Ben to access the Meet information and sermon recordings. As of December 2021, our Bible Studies have returned to online-only in light of Omicron.

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.
