Soul House (Scarborough, Ontario, Canada)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Soul House began as a house church in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada under the leadership of Judith McCartney. By 2020 each week 10-20 people gathered for a meal followed by Bible study and prayer. Judith McCartney was also parish pastor to a group of people on-line and a woman from Soul House also led an on-line Bible study. An on-line presence was an important aspect of Soul House.

In fact, Soul House was in part launched from a Facebook invitation. McCartney said “I invited them to my home as a safe place to talk about and unpack faith; we are a multi-layered, unique expression of church.”

Soul House joined MCEC as a congregation with provisional membership in April 2020.
