Welcome to Hayward

At Cornerstone, we’re committed to helping the 510 take their next step with Jesus – whether that is discovering for the first time who He is, or adding clarity to your long religious journey. Our vision is to have a Cornerstone campus within ten to fifteen miles of every person living in the East Bay and to have local, relevant, loving meeting places that promote community for all.

Kids and Students Ministries


Kids programs in a movie theater? Yup!! We actually take over many theaters as we create age-appropriate environments for your kid(s) to have a safe, great time learning about a God that loves them! It's our goal that your kid(s) will want to come back to again and again. Please click below to learn more.

Whether it’s your first time or your hundredth time, we want you to feel welcomed, be a part of what’s going on, and have a great time as we learn about Jesus together. If you’re not perfect, that’s totally okay, because neither are any of us! We want you to feel known, loved, and valued by God and by us, so come hang out!
