COVID-19 Update

Fri, 03/20/2020 - 08:27

These are unusual times. Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and subsequent restrictions, we have had to make the difficult decision to suspend all public meetings of Lamplight until further notice. We will continue to post weekly sermon messages to our website on Sundays as we encourage everyone to listen in and follow along with us.

We are still here. We still care about this city and our neighbours. We still want to help where we can. This is the way of Jesus. If you would like to reach us, please email us at May you stay healthy and connected through these challenging times.

Wondering where to go for Easter Sunday at Lamplight Church in Kitchener Waterloo

Easter Sunday at Lamplight Church in Kitchener Waterloo

We believe Easter is not just another religious holiday – it’s the greatest moment ever! Find out what’s so special about Easter. Why Jesus being raised to life matters to every single person on the planet. And why, because He lives, we can too.

You are invited to join us on Sunday April 5th from 10am.

Our Sunday morning meetings are an opportunity to gather together to celebrate all that Jesus has done in our lives, to minister to one-another in the power of the Spirit and to hear from God’s Word. Our dress code is simple: Please wear clothes. Our style is relaxed: come as you are!



Connect Group Sign Up

Sun, 01/18/2015 - 15:43

It’s time to pick which night you will be attending Connect Group!

Wherever you’re from, you can find your place in a Connect Group.


The Road Ahead

Sun, 01/18/2015 - 15:28

Romans 12:4-8 (NIV)

“For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”

2014 was a great year of strengthening and growth – and we are believing Jesus for another year of His faithfulness!

Here are some key milestones / priorities we see on “The Road Ahead”…

(In no particular order.)

1. Re-invigorated Connect Groups

Two new weekly groups will be starting up in February, one on Wednesday in Kitchener and the other on Thursday in Waterloo, from 7:30pm.

By the end of the year we will have 4 groups.

2. Street Level Festivals

As part of our vision to be a visible Christian community we are going to be serving up free water at a number of “mainstream” festivals in the Kitchener Waterloo area this year.

3. Street Level Picnic

The second Sunday in August, we will be in Victoria Park for a picnic with face-painting and other free stuff to bless the community.

4. Christians Against Poverty – coming February 8th

Christians Against Poverty will be making a presentation on February 8th (at Brunch). Come along and find out how this ministry helps people who struggle to balance their budget (isn’t that everyone?).

5. Church Weekend Away – July 18th or 25th

Venue and Date TBC – a fun weekend away for the whole family.

6. Whatever the Lord leads you to

As a community together we believe that everyone can lead in the area they are called to. Speak to a leader if you have a burning idea.
