Our worship is rich in a variety of music and forms, following the Revised Common Lectionary through the Church Year. Our life together is marked by many opportunities for learning, service, and fellowship. We are a member of the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches, the Atlantic Baptist Fellowship, and the Wolfville Area Inter-Church Council.
