Stony Plain Alliance Church is currently moving into our brand-new facility. This follows a 4- year transition following a major fire that decimated our campus. We had temporarily relocated our Sunday ministries to Living Waters Christian Academy only to be battered by a world-wide pandemic. Through all of this, God’s hand has sustained us with great resilience and the assurance of his sovereignty. We’re moving on!
