1991, Shalom held its first worship service in the Brantford Christian School.
On November 30, 1992 Shalom took possession of 5 acres of land on Buchanan Crescent in the North end of Brantford. This was the result of almost 5 years of searching for a property.
In 1993, negotiations began into the possibility of First and Shalom reunifying. A Reunification Committee made up of representatives from both churches was initiated. This committee designed an extensive survey with the results strongly favouring reunification. On July 10, 1994, the inaugural service of the new reunified church was held at 17 Patterson Ave. On January 10, 1995, this new church was named HOPE CHRISTIAN REFORMED CHURCH and that's us today!
In April, 1998 we began the construction of a new church building at 64 Buchanan Crescent. On Sunday, December 6, 1998, we held our first service in the new building. Our Dedication Service occurred on Friday, December 18 followed by an Open House on Saturday, December 19, 1998.
