Welcome to Hamilton Union Presbyterian Church

“Join the Journey!”
At Hamilton Union we are imperfect people travelling together on a journey of faith and discovery as disciples of Jesus and as Christians. We seek to grow spiritually in the Christian faith as we minister to and care for others and each other. We believe there are different paths for this journey, and we welcome those of different denominational backgrounds.
Early Worship Service at 8:30 on Sundays
An informal, family-oriented, half-hour service enhanced by our Guitar Choir. Come as you are! Bring your coffee -- refills provided!
Traditional Worship at 10:00 on Sundays
A more traditional worship service in the Presbyterian tradition with organ, choir and special music. Service usually concludes by 11:15 am.

We encourage children to join in worship by lighting the candles and participating in the Children's Message. After the Message, children can attend an informal, supervised Children's Fellowship while the worship service continues and concludes.
