Spreading God's Word


Good News Christian Reformed Church has been part of the east end of London, Ontario since 1989. Through God's gracious help and guidance, we hope to share the good news of God’s amazing love for everyone. 

Worship at Good News

Welcome! Whether it's your first time coming to church or you've just moved into the neighbourhood, we invite you to check us out.  

Come dressed to be comfortable. Our congregants come in anything from jeans to a shirt and tie.  Our church building is fully wheelchair accessible and there is plenty of parking in the

parking lot.  

Our greeters and ushers are eager to meet you and help you find your way into the worship service. We also have a Hospitality Centre where our welcoming hosts will be glad to introduce you to people and give you more information about who we are.  

Bring your kids! We have a nursery for children from birth to three years old, and Sunday School for kids age four to grade five.  

Please stay and let us get to know you during our fellowship time after the service - coffee, tea and juice are served.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe the Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the revelation of God's truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. 
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God's displeasure, except by His mercy.
  • We believe that salvation is by grace alone - a gift we receive from God in and through Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him alone for salvation.
  • We believe God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals, but as families in successive generations, according to His Covenant promises.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in God's people and gives them the wisdom and strength to trust Christ and follow Him.
  • We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God, under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
