James North Baptist Church (formerly Hughson Street Baptist) has been a part of the North End for almost 135 years. We have been more than just a worship gathering on Sundays as we minster to as many people during the week as we do through our Sunday worship times. Under the leadership of Pastor Dwayne Cline, we believe the Lord has called us to a very simple philosophy of ministry – we seek to bless the North End of Hamilton in Jesus’ name.
With the easing of Covid19 protocols we are returning to one worship gathering from 10:00am to 11:30am on Sundays. Masking is still a requirement, and there is an area where seating will have physical distancing in place, while our main auditorium will be set up to accommodate a full house.
We believe the gospel changes everything. The good news of the gospel is that the death of Jesus Christ has paid the price for our sin, taking the penalty we deserve on Himself, saving us with certainty because of His resurrection. The gospel grants us purpose, hope and a hew perspective on joy and fulfillment. Life may not always be easy, but our hope in Jesus Christ gives us strength for the journey. At James North we strive to continually offer the hope of Jesus to others through our ministries and programs.
Perhaps you haven’t had a chance to visit us in our new building at the NE corner of James St N and Picton Ave. It still feels new, although we’ve been here since August 2021. We would be glad to welcome you any Sunday or you can check out our live-stream to watch from home. You could also come by on Fridays from 9-11am for Coffee’s On where our Food Bank is open to help those who need a little boost.
