North Park Community Church began in 1963 when twelve families came together to plant a church in London, ON. That first year they went door to door, inviting the community in. The desire to reach out and impact the local community has been foundational to NPCC and continues today.
NPCC has two active and engaged London area campuses. Fanshawe, the main campus, has a weekly attendance of approximately 600 attending the two weekly services, in addition to the over 180 people involved in children and youth engagement. The main campus also facilitates a weekly Chinese service (a church within a church). The Stratford site was recently launched without incurring any debt and has a growing attendance of 120. A third site is currently being leased to a former North Park church plant that ministers with a focus on newcomer families. There is also a significant online presence, and we have strategically grown our online audience to over 500 views weekly. We continue to intentionally develop this platform to reach out to our local community and beyond.
NPCC has a long history of supporting local and global missionaries. Some examples of how we partner are through strengthening families in need in the community through food redistribution and compassionate ministries, building into the next generation through campus ministry, inspiring biblical literacy through Bible translation in Papua New Guinea, partnering with Bible colleges in Ethiopia through training in English language teaching, supporting church planters in Prague, encouraging new global missionary mentoring through cross-cultural training, and walking alongside newcomers to Canada as they resettle.
