Who we are

Crosswinds cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Crosswinds is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that same freedom.

Where we come from

Crosswinds started out as Canandaigua Wesleyan Church in 1888 in Hopewell, NY, moving to Bristol Street in downtown Canandaigua in 1924. We outgrew our Bristol Street facilities and relocation to our present site on Middle Cheshire Road was completed in 1975. Since then, we have gone through three major building projects that have allowed us to serve our community in greater ways.

Where we’re headed

Crosswinds is committed to seeing the Finger Lakes Region saturated with the love and message of Jesus Christ. We are committed to providing a safe place for people to explore their faith. We are committed to seeing people transformed by the power of God as they engage in faith and discipleship, helping each person to take their next step in their spiritual journey. Crosswinds is also committed to sharing the love and message of Jesus with those beyond our region, to the ends of the earth. We are committed to establishing disciples and churches, as well as partnering with other churches and organizations, around the world.

What this means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you’re always welcome at Crosswinds. We’re saving a seat for you. Wherever you’re at in your faith journey, you’ll always be accepted as part of the Crosswinds family.
