Stratford, Ontario

Pastor Mark Parker serves as the pastor the Spotlight Wesleyan Church plant in Stratford. He recently wrote with an update on the revitalizing work they are doing…

Dear Milliken Church Friends, These are exciting days here at Spotlight. Recently it was my privilege to share the vision that God has impressed on Spotlight Church here in Stratford. We have hit the reset button and believe we have only just begun to reach this city and region for Jesus Christ! Some of our dreams include reaching 1/10th of the city’s people with the Gospel, and building a 15-acre campus where we gather to grow and then scatter to serve.

We want to be a multi-generational, multi-cultural, and multi-ethnic place where non-charismatic and lively charismatic worship happens in unity. We want to become a congregation of 500 fully-committed members who love, learn laugh and serve in harmony. We hope to launch five daughter congregations in the surrounding villages and communities. And these are just a few of our bold ideas for the Kingdom! This dream is way bigger than we are, but not bigger than our God!

We have just moved into a slightly larger office space in the United Way building here in our town. We are also having our church website rebuilt. Maybe it will be ready for your visit when you are reading this update! Come and see it at Thank you for your continuing prayers and partnership. May the Gospel of Jesus spread through you too!

– Enjoying the Journey,

Pastor Mark Parker

Today we welcome Ms. Cymone Lee as our guest speaker. Ms. Lee serves with the Centre for Mentorship & Theological Reflection based at Tyndale Theological Seminary. In this ministry, she encourages mentorship as a vital part of Christian spiritual growth. Cymone’s passion for worship, prayer, and discipleship have given her opportunity to minister in many different settings both inside and outside the church.

Close to Christ is the theme for our Thursday Lenten Worship Services taking place 9am and 7:15pm. Join us in these meaningful times of worship, sharing, prayer and holy communion.

Best Years Fellowship will hold their next session on March 20th at 10:30am. This month’s special presenter will be Noor Ratansi-Iamurri from the Canadian Hearing Society. Plan to bring a friend and share in the lunch that follows the meeting.

Multi-Church Movie Night On Friday, March 23rd, we will host a special screening of Adam’s Testament, a full-length, feature film that reflects Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son. This spiritual-warfare themed movie will include a special Q&A with two of the actors who will attend our screening! This film is recommended for persons ages 12 and older, as it includes frightening scenes. Our showing will be free, but free-will donations will be accepted.
