Congregational Life

Fellowship Church PicnicOur fellowship...
Fellowship church wants to be true to its name! Although far from being a perfect church we cherish the bond of communion in which God draws us together. We also desire to be a vibrant witness of God’s faithfulness in our community.

Every Sunday we are called together to hear the preaching of the Gospel. The Word of God is central to our lives and we need to be encouraged by it. So we honour God’s command and keep the Lord’s Day holy.

Building each other up...
There are a number of bible study and devotional groups in our midst involving the youth as well as older members of the congregation. In these, more informal settings the riches of God’s word are discussed.

The Bible says that God’s people are to be “an arm and a leg” for each other. Are there those with special needs in our midst? We try not to leave their care only to the deacons who have a special calling to look after these members. We do what we can to look after the elderly, lonely, the distressed and needy.

Teaching the young...
Our parents are committed to educating their children in a godly manner. Besides the Christian education the children receive at home and church, most of the children of the congregation attend school at John Calvin Christian Elementary here in Burlington, and Guido de Bres Christian High in Hamilton. This private school commitment, which calls for financial sacrifice, is generally encouraged simply because we believe God's children are all special. They belong to him and the education they receive at school, home and church, when they complement each other, build a foundation to love and serve the Lord, and be assets in the community.

Sharing in our fellowship...
Fellowship is very much involved with the outreach program Streetlight Ministries (don’t hesitate to click the link!). We also make regular visits to Park Avenue Manor, a senior’s residence in Aldershot. Many of our youth are regular volunteers at Campfire a summer Bible camp for children and youth.

The fellowship we enjoy goes far beyond bonds of friendship, unity of purpose, cordiality and helping hands for those in need. It is rooted in the communion we have in Jesus Christ. It is a fellowship of faith, and hope, and love. It is a treasure and we invite you to come and rejoice in it with us.
