Christian Community Church of Cheticamp

Christian Community Church of Cheticamp is a relatively new church plant that has come to fruition in the last few years. There has been a home Bible study in the area for over 25 years with folks attending Margaree Valley Baptist Church on Sundays which is a 50 minute drive away. In  2011 we began having public services once a month. In 2012 we had them twice a month and since November 2012 we  have Sunday services every week. We met at the Kinsmen Hall on the Cheticamp Back Road. As of November 1st 2015 we are in our own church building. We were able to purchase land and a building in 2013 and renovate over the nest 2 years. We now have a beautiful little church at 14044 Cabot Trail in point Cross. We are averaging about 35 people each Sunday with new people coming and some are coming to personal faith in Jesus Christ. Our meetings are friendly and casual with much sharing and prayer. Sermons are available on the sermons page on this website. After each service we have a common meal together (Pot Blessing) and there is always enough. 


Pastor Pierre Chiasson

Pierre was converted to Christ in 1978 from a life of drugs and atheism at the age of 21. He and his wife Marie had a burden to reach the people of Cape Breton Island with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Evangelical Christianity on Cape Breton was less than 1% of the population.

While most people are very religious very few claim to have a sure and certain salvation based on the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

By 1984 Pierre was in full time ministry with Margaree Valley Baptist Church conducting Bible Studies in Cheticamp and Inverness and visiting throughout the area.

He has continued to minister in many villages in western Cape Breton and in November of 2012 has taken the position of Pastor in the Cheticamp Church full time. He is still reaching out and doing church plants in 2 other communities : Inverness

and Dingwall.

    I am so pleased to see such a positive church be situated in Cheticamp. I belonged to a home study group for many years, but the pastor had to leave, and we were left to flounder. I don’t live there anymore, but I am always in touch, and I am so glad that the people have another chance to praise the almighty in the company of friends.
    God Bless you all!

    I have returned to Cheticamp after being away for many years and am amazed how the Holy Spirit has graced this fellowship with the living word and with power. I prayed the Lord to guide me to a fellowship of believers and have been blessed to be part of this fellowship for three years now.
    It is awesome and inspiring to be blessed daily through prayer and encouragement from the God’s word in the Bible. Once again God has led me to a place of nourishment. Praise the lord for His mercies.

    Hi Pierre, I enjoyed listening to Murray’s testimony this morning. Trust that the Lord is continuing to bless the work in Cheticamp and beyond. We’re having a men’s retreat next Saturday, which we are looking forward to. We had a great visit with Francine back in September. Ross

  6. Francine says:

    Just listened to Mark & Janet Palmer share their testimony. How awesome to see God answering prayer on behalf of the town of Inverness. Praying like Paul: “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him”(Ephesians 1:17)
    ~ Love, Francine

    WOW! I am really impressed with how the Lord has been working there in Cheticamp ! A lot sure has happened in the four years since we were last with you. See some familiar faces in the pictures. Chris and I will be praying for Marie and I’ll make sure she is on our church prayer list.

  8. Lee & Shelley Winger says:

    It has been exciting to hear of the growth of your church, by way of Gord & Florence Cormier, whenever they make it “home” to Welland, Ontario. On our church’s Anniversary Sunday, Nov. 1, we were thrilled to hear of your new building. Then with Gord & Florence visiting just yesterday, to get a first hand report of all the work that has gone in to your renovation. And now to see some pictures on your web-site! Congratulations, and may God continue to bless your ministry in the community of Cheticamp!

    I made contact with you several months ago concerning the possibility of partnering with you and the church. I have lost that email and it’s content. I would love to dialogue with you and develop a strategy to help you in the Lord work.

    On a personal note, I thought I had Gord and Florence Cormier’s email address. I guess I don’t. Can you give them my email address and let them know I am praying for you guys and would love to hear from them. God bless and know we are praying for your wife.

    I’m a Halifax Senior, and i love travelling in “God’s Own Country” ie Cape Breton. A month ago I worshipped with you on Sunday morning, and tonight I poked through that dark lane that leads to your lovely church, hoping to find the Lord presiding over the Wednesday at 7 Bible |Study. The dear Lord was indeed there, but none of His servants! Did I come to the right place? Dear Brothers and Sisters I pray the Lord’s rich blessing on you each and all! Oct 26, 2016

      Dear Neville. The last Wednesday of each month we put on a gospel concert at the old folks home in Cheticamp. We should have had a sign posted on the door of the church. I am so sorry for this oversight. Please come again and visit us. Had you known you could have joined us there. Again I apologise for us not having this posted.
      In Christ Pierre

    Hi Christian Community Church

    Does the church have a mailing address? I don’t see it posted anywhere on the site

    Hello, I am so encouraged to find out about this church. My family is originally from Cheticamp and have attended the Catholic church from time to time. They know about God and Jesus but I wouldn’t say they completely believe. I pray that people wouldn’t see Christianity as a money grab, bunch of works and rules. I pray it wouldn’t be about religion but about relationship with God and each other. I pray that the people would be made aware that they need Christ in their hearts and would abide in His love.
    I pray that God would continue to bless your ministry and that it would continue to grow as more people come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and develop a personal relationship with our Father God. I pray that the eyes of people would be opened to the true gospel in Galatians (Jesus + nothing = everything) and that they would be overwhelmed by the grace and love of God. I pray that people would be radically changed and become followers of Christ. I sense that God is moving and answering prayer in an accelerated manner. I pray that the Holy Spirit would fill the church and his people. God bless you. Amen
