In 1999, Phase 3 was completed and the sanctuary could now seat 850 people. In 2002, Phase 4 of the construction was completed. This included new office spaces, a prayer room, a music room, a kitchen and a gymnasium.
MCA is now home to over 1500 people from 45 different nations. We gather every Sunday at 9:00am & 11:30am (new service time) for Praise & Worship, followed by a time of prayer & preaching of the Word. After each service, we have refreshments in the gym. We also have mid-week activities, including after-school programs, family night and sports. MCA is a great place to Believe, to Belong & to Be Loved! Why not bring a friend?
In the Power of the Holy Spirit, we will go into the community of Malvern, the city of Toronto, the nation of Canada and to the ends of the earth, and preach the gospel to all people, and make them into disciples of Jesus Christ.
MCA is a dynamic and diverse Spirit-filled church, committed to reaching thousands. Over the next 7 years we expect to SEE:
~Every Home in Malvern reached with the Gospel
~Every Believer becoming a Disciple; Every Disciple a Mentor
~Every Family member Trained & Equipped
~Every Gift fully Developed
~Every Act of Compassion & Generosity Extended
~Establishment of a Family Centre
~Enlargement of our territory by planting 7 new churches
