Wolfville baptist church
Updated January 24, 2022
Dear Wolfville Baptist Church Members & Friends,
Due to the latest Covid-19 directives from the Nova Scotia Department of Health, Wolfville Baptist Church has decided to cancel its in-person worship services for the time being. Worship services will be streamed live on Sunday mornings without members of the congregation being present in the Sanctuary.
We sincerely apologize for the disappointment this decision may cause, but we feel it's far more important to protect the health of our church family by not congregating in numbers at this time.
Weekly Worship services
On-site Sanctuary Worship Services

In the absence of in-person worship, we have resumed our after church social gathering (The Virtual Vestry) on Zoom beginning Sundays at approximately 11:30 am. To obtain the link, please contact the church office at email@example.com
It is the practice at Wolfville Baptist Church that we celebrate Communion
on the first Sunday of each month.

Sorrow for the Past; Hope for the Future
Sweet grass in Miners Marsh, Kentville, and
a tree in Clock Park, Wolfville,
in sorrowful memory
of all the First Nations children who died without honour
away from family in schools not their own …
and in hope that a path may be forged
to mutual respect, regard, reconciliation,
affirmation that we are all children
of one loving Creator/God.

SWEET GRASS PLANTING
People of Annapolis Valley First Nation and nearby communities gathered on July 8, 2021, at Miners Marsh in Kentville. Together we grieved the tragic deaths of Indigenous children in residential schools, and we planted healing sweet grass acknowledging that the Creator sees all peoples as one. Thanks go to Wolfville Baptist Church, the Town of Kentville, and Susan Lawrence of Baldwin Nurseries for her generous gift of sweet grass.
We offer special thanks to Carolyn Landry and her sister Neenie Melvin for their leadership in ceremony.
TREE PLANTING in MEMORY, in HONOUR, and in HOPE
A symbolic sugar maple tree was planted In the Clock Park in Wolfville on
July 13, 2021, by Wolfville Baptist Church and the Town of Wolfville. Led in ceremony by our Indigenous friends Carolyn Landry and her sister Neenie Melvin, we grieved the tragic deaths of Indigenous children in residential schools, and we expressed hope that, like the tree, we will grow in mutual understanding, respect, and affirmation as one people, children of the Creator.
Special thanks go to Susan Lawrence of Baldwin Nurseries who donated the tree with the words “because it means a lot to me”.
The first official record of a Baptist church in Canada was that of the Horton Baptist Church (now Wolfville), established on October 29, 1778. The church was established with the assistance of the New Light evangelist Henry Alline. The Baptist movement remained strong in the area. In 1838 Acadia University was founded as a Baptist college.
