There are many ways to become involved at Mount Hamilton Baptist Church.
Small Groups and Workshops
We value the experience of small groups to learn and go deeper in our faith. We have a number of ways for people to engage in small groups that vary in different seasons.

We have two Bible studies that meet during the week for those who are not in the workforce. A ladies’ Bible study meets at the church on Tuesday mornings from 9:30-11:30. There is also a Bible study open to everyone on Friday mornings.
Children, Teen and Family
Coffee and Kids
Every other Wednesday, 10:30-12:00, at the church
There are babies and toddlers and parents and toys and songs and, of course, coffee at this social circle for young families. After some hanging out, there is a special “circle time” for the kids, followed by a “parent break” when mommys and daddys meet in a separate room to support and encourage each other while their children are watched by loving volunteers. We bring the coffee – you bring the kids!
Every other Tuesday, 12:30-2:00, at the church
Moms of school aged children meet to learn together and support each other as parents of faith. There is a video on a relevant topic, followed by a discussion.
Sunday School and Nursery
Every Sunday, during our Worship Service
We love our children and it matters to us that they learn about faith in a way that is relevant to their age and understanding. It also matters to us that we all worship together, so our kids start out singing with us in our “big” worship service, before they head to the other side of our building for their kids’ program. Here, kids are divided into three different age groups (preschool, primary, elementary) where they learn a story from the Bible in an interactive way enhanced with discussion, games and crafts. Infants up to 2 years of age are welcomed in our nursery throughout the service where they are watched with love by trained volunteers. Nursing mothers can also find a quiet place to nurse, and a change table and other supplies in this room.
Being a teenager also has its own unique journey of faith and we hope to meet our teens where they in several different ways. They get their own link!!

Retirees and Seniors
Retirees Social Group
The third Thursday of every second month
The 55+ crowd gather over lunch to get to know one another and then have a “learning time” on a whole range of topics – from senior safety, to supporting grandchildren, to hearing about a ministry in the city. There’s no “tired” in our retirees!
Each spring, we plant gardens on our property to provide fresh produce for Neighbour to Neighbour food bank. Community members without access to garden beds can also sign up to receive their own garden space. As a church we plant, maintain and harvest the gardens together.
We are thrilled to provide several summer camps at low cost to our community every summer through our “Impact Hamilton” program.
