Overview of Church and Community

Almonte Baptist Church (ABC) is a 150+yr old congregation in the beautiful town of Almonte, ON. The church building is quaint and full of country charm! Our congregation is a mix of all ages, and we are excited to have some young families attending with their children. We are casual and welcoming with a focus on evangelism and outreach (we hold our summer services outdoors weather permitting as one example). Our music style is a mix of traditional and contemporary with a worship band accompanying. The picturesque town of Almonte is small but very vibrant with a lively reputation for the arts and music festivals they host throughout the year. The church building is one block from the Almonte Beach, fairgrounds and the OVT providing ample opportunity for activities of all kinds year-round.
