Who We Are
Canopy is one church made up of many house churches, and we are committed to growing together in both spaces. Because we are convinced that growth in freedom happens best in intimate relationship, we are devoted to house church as central to our community. At the same time, we recognize that we are all on this journey together and see great strength in gathering all of our house churches together on a regular basis for a ‘family reunion’. So, we gather on an every-other-week rotation: one weekend we are in homes with our house churches, and the next weekend we are all together as one church. To see what’s happening this weekend, visit our events page.
At a Canopy House Church, you will immediately get to dive into the life of our church. It’s a casual home environment, like a family dinner, but with a lot of intentionality. Each house church is led by a team of House Church pastors and hosts who are called and empowered to create unique churches in their neighborhoods that are learning together in community to embody the freedom that is found in Jesus. When you come to a House Church, you will experience a family meal, a sharing in the Lord’s Supper, a time of worship and discussion, and an opportunity to pray for or be prayed for by others. You will never be required to share about yourself, but you are always welcome to join in the discussion and share as you feel comfortable.
All-Together Gatherings are our family reunions. At these gatherings, we meet as one church to worship, hear from the Word of God, share stories of God’s work in our lives, and respond together in singing, prayer, and a meal. Like our house churches, this is not a formal environment, so feel free to show up like you would to a family dinner.
Our All-Together Gatherings take place on Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:30pm at Lighthouse Community Church:
301 Magnolia Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92627.
