About Foothills Alliance Church

Lead Pastor Ian Trigg

We’re all on a journey to make sense of life and all its wonders, and we at Foothills are pretty convinced that God has a lot to say about that journey! As a church we exist to create pathways for people just like you to Know God, Love Others, Reach Neighbours, and Serve the World no matter where you are on life’s journey. If we can help you with any of these things, it would be our great honour and privilege.

Our Mission Statement

Foothills exists to create pathways for you to Know God, Love Others, Reach Neighbours, and Serve the world.

Our Beliefs

Knowing God
Loving Others
Reaching Neighbours
Serving The World

Know God • Cross

A representation of our steeple in the middle of the logo shows creating pathways to Knowing God is at the center of everything we do.

Love Others • Two Lines/People in Proximity

We are better together! The two lines of the "F" in the logo represent that we always create pathways to be in a community together.

Reach Neighbours • Hand/Extended Offer of Help

An abstract representation of a helping hand illustrates our value of reaching out beyond ourselves to create pathways for those around us to seek God, community, and support.

Serve The World • Outermost Element

The outermost element indicates our value for opening doors and creating pathways to serve people locally and globally as we radiate God's redemptive work into the community and beyond.

Our Story

Foothills began as a church plant out of First Alliance in 1965. A group of about 20 families who lived in the NW part of Calgary came together and built their first sanctuary in Brentwood. Five years ago, we completed a major expansion to our present facility, which virtually doubled our square footage and has created numerous opportunities for new ministries.
