Overview of Church and Community

We are a downtown congregation of approximately 170 friendly committed individuals from across the city reaching out to the demographically diverse and ever-shifting population in the core of London. Our multi-generational, multi-ethnic congregation organizes three weekly worship services – contemporary, traditional, and Karen (Burmese) language. Most weeks our contemporary and traditional services are held concurrently but we also come together once a month in a family service. First Baptist Church’s origins date to 1845 and we have worshipped in our current facility since 1954. Our church is a longstanding member of CBOQ. More details about FBC may be found on our web-site: www.first-baptist.ca
