About The Austin Stone Northwest

A Multi-Generational Church in Northwest Austin, TX

Back in January 2020, the former Church at Canyon Creek joined with The Austin Stone to form our Northwest Congregation. Since then, people from all different demographics and backgrounds have come through our doors to worship God and to spend time in intentional community with one another.

Through worship services, equipping classes, community gatherings, service opportunities, and more, our hope is for God to be glorified in northwest Austin and beyond. Whether you’re a young professional or senior adult, a student or a family with kids, there's a place for you here!

Kids Ministry at The Austin Stone Northwest

Each Sunday, we host programming for children 8 weeks old through 5th grade at 9am and 11am. Our thoroughly vetted and trained volunteers provide a safe and fun environment for kids to worship Jesus in a large-group setting and learn about the Bible in a smaller group. And for nursery-aged children, we provide a caring space where they are prayed over and cared for during services.


Students Ministry at The Austin Stone Northwest

High School Students

Rather than meeting as a ministry during Sunday services, we encourage students in 8-12th grade to integrate into the church body. Whether it be worshipping alongside parents or friends, receiving the teaching of elders, or serving in other ministries, we hope to empower students to love the church!

But, no fear—we also have spaces just for you! See our opportunities below:

  • Sunday nights 6-8pm at Northwest Campus. Food, fun, worship, and gospel teaching included! High school DCOMMS also meet during this time.
  • The LAST Sunday of each month following the 11am service in The Warehouse. Food, coffee, games, and fellowship included.

Middle School Students

During the 9am service on Sundays, our 5th, 6th, and 7th graders meet for a time to build community, have fun, and establish firm foundations of faith!

Middle school students gather every Sunday from 6-8pm at our Northwest Campus for food, fun, worship, and gospel teaching. Middle school DCOMMs also meet during this time.

Are there Bible study classes for adults on Sunday mornings?

Yes! We have Adult Bible Fellowships that meet at 9am and 11am on Sundays. For more information on joining a group, please email

Do you offer childcare or programming for kids and students on Sundays?

Yes! Our Kids Ministry has programming available during the 9am and 11am service for newborns through 5th grade. Upon arrival, follow the signs to the Kids check-in area.

We also host a combined service for middle school and high school students at 9am!

We don’t currently have live interpretation, but our South Congregation does offer live American Sign Language interpretation during their 9am service each Sunday! We also post each sermon online with closed captioning.
