In 1842, a congregation was formed in Markham. A church with log construction was built by them in 1843. After renovations in 1873, 1899, and extension in 1960, it became the church building now located at 2830 Highway 7. Zion started renting the church for Sunday services in 1994. After eighteen years, Brown’s Corners United Church sold the building to us. An extension was built in 2020 for our Children Ministry. Many historic features of the building are still kept at the church. This is a witness of the growth of Canada and a testimony of the faithfulness and grace of our God.
The word Zion is from the Bible. It refers to God’s house and His presence. May Zion Alliance Church be a place where you can meet God and experience His presence!
There are more than 400 Alliance churches in Canada, Zion belongs to the Eastern Canada District of the C&MA Canada. The fourfold Gospel describes the historic emphasis of the C&MA on the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is our Saviour, our Sanctifier, our Healer, and our Coming King. These aspects of the ministry of Jesus is what defined the C&MA more than 100 years ago and continues to lay out the foundation of our work today. Want to know more about our belief?
