Loving Little Rock back to Life

Though Canvas is located primarily at 1111 West 7th street in downtown Little Rock, our gatherings spread across the entire Little Rock Metro.  From Bible Studies to accountability groups, prayer gatherings, worship, hymn sings, and much more, we are a community that is unafraid to move outside the walls of our building.



Sunday night worship

Every week our community comes together from various walks of life to seek a common experience of a mystifying God in an age where little seems to mystify anymore.  We pray, we sing, we listen to sermons, and we spend time together just like any church does; however, all of this takes a unique and particularly honest and raw form at Canvas, as we do not insulate ourselves from the hard topics that are so often avoided in churches.

This honest and modern approach to worship is coupled with a deep appreciation for ancient Christianity and the mysterious depths found in 2000 years of Christian practices and ways of worship such as Communion/The Eucharist, iconography, and
moments of contemplation.

Our desire to bring the same worship and faith that gave Christians the courage, strength, and peace to face lions in the Coliseum into a modern context.

Beer & HYmns

The first Sunday of each month we gather at Diamond Bear Brewery for a few (responsibly imbibed) drinks, some food, great conversation, and a good old-fashioned hymn sing led by various musicians and bands.  The only requirement for joining us is that you have to sing "lustily!"

Dinner & a Movie

Four years ago, several members of Canvas were unhappy with a lack of hospitality the city of Little Rock was showing to those who found themselves homeless.  Their response was to open up Canvas Community Church on Wednesday nights and to invite the homeless in for a free meal and free entertainment.  The response was overwhelming.  What began as simply showing a movie and offering a place to belong to those who had no place eventually became an entirely new approach to addressing Little Rock’s chronic homeless problem through holistic means: relationship, authentic friendship, community, and belonging rather than merely handouts or relationally distant case management.

At Dinner & a Movie, we do not just serve food and show a movie.  We use dinner and entertainment as a front door to real relationships, real care, and real love that gives people a chance at real Life.

Midday Prayer

Midday Prayer occurs every Wednesday at Noon at Canvas Community.  It is a fifteen- to twenty-minute time of silence and prayer for our world, our leaders, our local community, and our church.  It is perfect opportunity to take a deep breath and reorient your hearts and minds back to Christ in the middle of the week.

Canvas Womenfolk

Take your expectations about “women’s groups” and throw them out the window (well, except for the expectation of food; keep that one, because there’s usually a snack or two).  The Womenfolk have been known to work their way through a spiritual memoir by a contemporary author, such as Rachel Held Evans, Nadia Bolz-Weber, or Glennon Doyle Melton, or study part of the Bible with a book from theologian N.T. Wright as their guide.  They've even entered into the deeper commitment to spiritual discipline and development found in the Wesleyan Covenant groups.  They don’t shy away from the tough questions of faith. To get the details on their next meeting, contact Carter (carter@welovelittlerock.org), and he will put you in touch with one or more of the Canvas Womenfolk.
