We welcome you to join us on Sunday at 10:30am and 12:45pm for our weekly worship services.
Sunday worship services
They are an opportunity to develop our relationship with God through the reading and preaching of His Word (the Bible), singing songs of worship, and through prayer – all this with a community of people who are also seeking to have a living relationship with Jesus Christ, our Saviour, and the reason why we gather to worship. God uses this group of believers, called the church, to encourage, support, and teach one another about his plan for Salvation.
It is our hope and prayer that we will see you this Sunday!
Going to a new church can be intimidating but we will do our best to make you feel welcome! Here are a few things you can expect when you visit Mercy for the first time:
- Location: Directions to the facility can be found here and we have plenty of parking available at the church building.
- Welcome Team: Mercy church members will be at the entrance of the building to greet you – they can answer any questions you may have and will show you around.
- Children/Childcare: Children are welcome to join us in the worship service, but we also offer childcare during our services for infants and toddlers. There are tables set up at the back of the hall with activity pages for the older children (age 4-10+).
- Donations: During the service, a collection bag is passed around. As our guests, please do not feel obliged to contribute. The donations are for supporting people with financial needs and other Christian acts of charity in our community.
- Bible Texts and Song Lyrics: During the service, the Bible texts we read and song lyrics we sing will all be projected anything along to be able to worship with us.
- Prayer: Our pastor and leaders pray with us as a church during the service but, if you have a matter on your heart for prayer, volunteers will also be available to pray with you after the service.
- Lunch: We enjoy lunch together after the worship service every Sunday. We would love for you to join us!
We would love for you to visit us!
Everyone is welcome at Mercy Christian Church, and we are blessed each Sunday with many guests.
If you are not a Christian but would like to learn more about the Bible and its teachings, you are very welcome to join us for worship. If you have any questions, our pastor or welcome team is available to chat with you.
If you are already a Christian and are searching for a faithful church in Hamilton, we’d love to have you join us as well.
Mercy church is made up of small groups.
God created us to be in relationships with one another. Our fellowship with other believers is pivotal for sharing our joys and sorrows, our victories and struggles. When we meet regularly in small groups, we develop Godly relationships to encourage each other faithfully.
Mercy small groups are designed to support our spiritual growth. Our members meet together weekly to enjoy a time of fellowship together, study the Bible, and spend time in prayer for each other. This is a beautiful time of worship on a small scale where fellow believers can learn from and support each other.
If you are new to Mercy and would like to join a small group, we will gladly find one that fits you. Small groups are meeting on several different nights of the week, so we will do our best to work with your schedule.
We believe God calls his people to be members of a faithful local church.
To become a member of Mercy Church, the first step is to contact our elders. They will have a short meeting with you to help get you started with the new member process.
You can become a member in one of the following three ways:
- If you are a new believer, by making a public profession of your faith in Jesus Christ. If you have never been baptized, this will be done at the same time.
- If you have already publicly professed your faith in another church, by meeting with our elders to discuss your faith with them.
- If you are already a member of one of Mercy’s sister churches, formally transfer your membership. This is usually done by acquiring a letter of attestation from your previous church and submitting it to the Mercy elders.
