A Christian Reformed Church in Brantford, Ontario

Hope Christian Reformed Church is a community of Christians who joyfully: worship together, grow together, share Christ’s saving love; to the glory of God.

70th Anniversary

The Christian Reformed Church held its first service in Brantford on Sunday, July 24, 1949 in the Alexandra Presbyterian Church with 35 people in attendance. Two years later, on July 29, 1951 the church became incorporated and was called First Christian Reformed Church. We thank God for this congregation's many years as a community of Christians who joyfully worship together, grow together, and share Christ’s saving love together and with others - all to the glory of God. While we would love to have a larger anniversary celebration, our intention is to do so when pandemic restrictions allow for fuller social interaction (and sharing of food!). Anniversaries are good times to look back and remember, but also to look forward and renew our commitments in the light of God's faithfulness.

NEW: RightNow Media

Hope has subscribed to RightNow Media for the next year. This gives everyone at our church full access to it.

Think of this as like a Netflix for video Bible studies, conference videos, ministry training, kids programming, etc. See an intro video here.

Most members received an email invite in mid-October. If you didn't get the email, the button above which will take you directly to our custom login page that will give you the access through our church's account.

Who we are

All of life is worship, and every Sunday we have time set aside to re-focus ourselves as followers of Christ as we head out into a new week.

To follow Christ is to be invited on a journey of lifelong growth.

As we grow in our love for Christ, God's love for us compels us to show his love to others.
