We are easily accessibly by the TTC, being located only a 30 second walk from a TTC bus stop on Willowdale Ave, east on Centre Ave. The Willowdale 98 bus will take you straight to the Willowdale and Centre bus stop, although the easiest way to find TTC directions to Wellspring is by using the TTC trip planner or by calling the TTC operator assistance line (416.393.INFO).
Wellspring is located North-East of Willowdale Ave and Cummer Ave in North York at 89 Centre Ave. We are members of the Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada (EMCC). Established in 1897, as the Spadina Mission, Wellspring went through a few name changes (Toronto West Church, Bethel Chapel, and Banfield Memorial Church), before changing our name to Wellspring Worship Centre in 2007.
From HWY 401, use the Yonge Street exit and go North. Turn right onto Sheppard Ave and travel East for about a kilometre, until Willowdale Ave. Turn left onto Willowdale and travel North for about 3.5 kilometres. Turn right onto Centre Ave (first light North of Cummer Ave).

We exist to make a difference through Christ in the GTA and the World
We, as a part of the body of Christ in this place, acknowledge that we have been created by God for His pleasure and for relationship with Him. Grounded in the foundation of Jesus Christ, we are about focusing, equipping and mobilizing people to make a difference in the lives of individuals, their communities and the world.
Spirituality: It is our desire to introduce people to the real source of the supernatural and to encourage them to connect with a God who is very much alive and wants to have a meaningful relationship with us.
Community: It is our desire to connect people with others of like faith by creating spiritually nurturing, discipling, and mentoring environments.
Mission: We help people find their mission/purpose in life. We help people move out of their comfort zones and get involved with things that can make a difference in their lives and the lives of others.
It is the vision of the congregation to be a church that makes a difference for Christ in our community, in our city and in the world at large. We want each member to find their expression of spirituality to be rooted in a deep relationship with God through His Son and to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to develop their own spiritual gifts in order to minister effectively to both the body and the world.

We [I] would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, the Métis, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. This territory is also covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. Today, the meeting place of Toronto (from the Haudenosaunee word Tkaronto) is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work/present in this territory.
