"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest."

- Matthew 11:28

We are a multi-generational family of believers seeking to connect with God and people, grow in our relationships with God and each other, and engage within our local community in healthy God-honouring ways. As a congregational entity our church has been active in Hamilton for just on 150 years.  Many of our current church members have been involved here for quite a few years of this while others have joined in more recently.

We love having new people come to join us for Sunday morning worship services.  Our services are family friendly, warm and relaxed.  We love having young children involved in our services and our kids programs and our facilities cater very well for everyone.

During the week we have a number of home groups operating as well for bible study, fellowship and mutual support.  Please let us know if you’d like to be linked in with one of these. Our facilities are also available for hire by other organisations in Hamilton including catering services and there are a number of groups who use our facilities regularly.

Hamilton Baptist Church – Our church, your church.


Thanks for visiting the website of Hamilton Baptist Church. Whether you’re a visitor to Hamilton, or you live in the region, we’d love to welcome you to church and get to know you.

We are a community of followers of Jesus Christ who are looking to embark on a new season of reaching our community with the Good News, that through Jesus, God has made a way for us to know him personally.

Our aim is, that through serving our community, we fulfil the command of Jesus to, “Let your light shine before men, that they see your good works and praise your Father in heaven,”   (Matt.5:16, NIV)

This calls us to foster a ’value-added’ relationship with our community:  that because we’re here, and because of who we are and how we serve, we add something of value to our community, and this opens their ears to the Gospel.

Jesus said that he “did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many.”  (Matthew 20:28, NIV)   And he calls us to follow him.

We won’t promise you the best show in town, just our sincere aim of loving like Jesus, serving like Jesus, caring and sharing as he demonstrated.  We endeavour to always be accepting of all, without regard to circumstance or status.   Showing grace, the undeserved favour which Jesus shows us, is our highest calling and our aim.   We’d love to welcome you to be a part of that.

Pastor  Doug Whiteford
