Hamilton, ONT

Background
Both Hamilton and St. Catharines now have a Lord’s Table meeting. On the first Lord’s Day of each month the saints from Hamilton will travel to St. Catharines to have the Lord’s Table and prophesying meeting together. On the third Lord’s Day of each month the saints from St. Catharines will travel to Hamilton to have the Lord’s Table and prophesying meeting together. This has helped to strengthen and encourage both localities. It has also increased the fellowship and blending between the two churches. On the Lord’s Day there are approximately 35 who meet in Hamilton and 23 in St. Catharines.

Most Saturday mornings, in a food court at a Welcome Centre between Hamilton and St. Catharines, all the brothers who desire to, come together for prayer and fellowship. Brothers come from St. Catharines, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Welland and Hamilton. There are also various home meetings and Bible studies taking place in both cities. There are weekly prayer meetings in Hamilton and St. Catharines. A couple living in Burlington, a city next to Hamilton, has opened their home for a weekly prayer meeting to pray for the Lord’s move in that city. Saints from Hamilton join them every week for prayer.

Both localities feel a strong need for the Lord to increase His expression in each city as well as spread His testimony to cities such as Welland, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls, and Burlington. Saints from these cities currently meet with St. Catharines or Hamilton.
