Welcome to Wentworth Baptist Church!

Located in Hamilton's Gibson-Lansdale neighbourhood, we are a place where people can come and feel at home, meet together, learn about God, and navigate a life of faith through good times and hard. Join us each Sunday as we worship God and search the scriptures, seeking to be transformed by grace into Jesus-like people.

Our Church was planted in 1890

Back then, Wentworth Street was the easternmost end of the city. After our building on Wentworth and King William burned down in 1922, our church moved down the street and opened a new building in 1924—and we've worshiped and served on the corner of Wentworth and Cannon ever since.

What We're All About

Our mission is to invite all people to

Know Christ

Grow in Christ, and

Go with Christ

by living lives marked with

Faith, Hope, and Love

What to Expect

During the COVID pandemic, things have looked a bit different. While restrictions have lifted, we are still following some best practices and passive mandates:

  • When you arrive, you'll be passively invited to self-screen for COVID symptoms. If you feel ill, or have two or more possible COVID symptoms, please do not attend in-person worship.
  • While the main-floor seating is now at capacity, for those who wish to continue practicing distancing, our balcony continues to be set up to allow for 6" physical distancing.
  • While mask mandates not no longer in effect, we will not make masks a dividing issue. Please respect those who choose to continue wearing a facemask, as well as those who chose not to wear them any longer. Those who do not show due respect for others' consciences by belittling either choice will be asked to leave the premises.
  • Services currently run approximately 1 hour in length.
