Our Story


illage Church began as the dream of a few individuals who wanted to see a new community of faith in the city of Buffalo. Over the course of a few years, this dream began to gather momentum and on February 14, 2011, a few men and women gathering in an Elmwood Village living room became the first official meeting of Village Church. In collaboration with The Orchard Group (a church planting organization from NYC) and several other church supporters Village Church was officially launched on October 9, 2011.

Village Church is not a building or an event, it is a collection of people from the city of Buffalo on mission to LOVE, LIVE, and SERVE.

Village Church began as a “portable church” leasing space in a gymnasium and setting up and tearing down for services each week. As the church continued to grow we relocated to a new semi-permanent location and signed a longer-term lease with First Presbyterian Church, where we meet currently.

In addition to the weekly gatherings, there are several small groups called Local Villages that meet in area homes, church spaces, and coffee shops throughout the week. These Local Villages are a big part of what makes Village Church the community that it is.

We are currently meeting every Sunday online until further notice. Join us for online gathering @ 10:00AM on Facebook live. Also on Sunday morning is our prayer gathering @ 9:30AM on zoom. For more information call Pastor Greg at 716-544-0246 or email
