an emerging community in Kanata, ON

Under the leadership of Jay Williamson, Proximity’s heart is to serve their community through missional living.

Their name, “Proximity,” was chosen to serve as a reminder of the value of abiding in Christ and in relationship with others both inside and outside the church family.

They are focusing on community service and outreach, and their heart is to actively pursue further church planting opportunities in rural West Ottawa communities as home groups grow or opportunities to partner arise. In the face of trends towards isolation, they want to be a relational church that prioritizes connection with God and each other over systems and structure or performance.
