Worship Gatherings

We are one church, with two locations. Our primary worship gatherings happen on Saturday nights at 6:00pm on Broadway, and Sunday mornings at 10:00am on Franklin St.
Worship gatherings about 90mins and childcare and kids church is available for most weeks.
The flow of our worship gatherings are worship through music, prayer and a vibrant message from God’s Word.
Worship is contemporary and dress is casual.
Cornerstone is home to those who have found their faith in Christ, and also to those who are seeking a Savior.

Mid-Week Prayer

We meet on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm for a time of coffee, prayer and encouragement. Its a safe place for friends – family – faith
Tuesday outreach and prayer is at the Norwich marina during the summer months.

Shaun Pillay, lead pastor

Pastor Shaun was born and raised in a small town of Sezela, south of the city of Durban, South Africa. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior and the age of 16. Shaun later moved to Durban to pursue theological education, and extensively travelled southern african countries on various mission trips. While serving as youth and missions pastor in Durban, Shaun met Deshni. After hearing the need for missionaries in USA and Europe, he began to seek God’s direction. Shaun and Deshni married in 2007 and immigrated to USA to plant Cornerstone City Church, in which he serves as lead pastor. He has a deep passion for discipleship multiplication. 
Pastor Shaun currently serves as church plant catalyst for CT and RI with the North American Mission Board (NAMB).

LoveLoud is a movement of churches demonstrating God’s love by meeting significant human needs while sharing Christ. We are on a journey of impacting lives and transforming communities through the power of the gospel.

Love Neighbors

Love compels us to see neglected and hurting people through the lens of the gospel. We seek to love loud addressing this overwhelming need and sharing the gospel, offering help and hope. 

Love Communities

Entire communities and population segments have been ignored and marginalized. We seek to have a faithful presence and  see community transformation as you meet needs and share Christ.

Love Children

Children are often caught in the web of pain and neglect. We seek to love loud by meeting specific needs (pregnancy care, foster care, adoption, orphan care and children’s homes) while sharing Christ.

 Get Involved

If you would like to help us “love loud” in Norwich, e-mail Shaun Pillay (spillay@namb.net). We would love to connect you with opportunities to serve.


Cornerstone City Church believes in church planting. Our Pastor (who planted our church 7 years ago) also serves as the North American Mission Board’s Church Planting Catalyst for Rhode Island and South East Connecticut.
