What is The Table?

The Table is an emerging Christian faith community with a passion to seek the peace of downtown Thorold in the name of Jesus.

Who is welcome at The Table?

Everyone in downtown Thorold is welcome — bring the whole family! There is plenty of room at The Table to gather, eat, share life, cultivate faith and friendships.

The Table’s rhythms include:

“Growing up” with God: At our Table gatherings we desire to deepen our relationship with God through a community of spiritual practices. 

“Growing in” with each other: We are a missional people that love, care, and support each other as we follow Jesus. 

“Growing Out” on mission: We are a people on mission to love and serve our community in the name of Jesus. Specifically, our missional activity is serving together with the community of an inner-city school to build meaningful relationships.   

All the proceeds from Peace of the City go directly towards the ministry of The Table and the ongoing positive transformation of Downtown Thorold.
