The Capital Campaign
Growing to Serve
Hughson Street Baptist Church has been serving in the North End of Hamilton since 1887. Through God's blessing our church has moved from a place where it was nearly empty to the place where we have had to move our worship services to the school across the road from our church.
Our 'New' Building
God miraculously provided the funding for us to purchase a building located a block away from our existing church (which was deemed unsuitable for expansion or rebuilding). The new facility at 500 James St N was 30,000 square feet compared to our current 8,000 square feet. However in order for it to accomodate our church and the housing God has led us to build, we have demolished the building and are preparing to build something new.
Not only will the new building serve as a place of worship in ministry, but it will also offer 45 apartments for the marginalized. We are partnering with Indwell, a Christian charity that creates affordable housing communities, in order to make this dream a reality.
The Campaign for Hughson
Our urgent prayer is that we can begin to build in the Spring of 2018. But the cost is well beyond our capacity, even though our members are heavily committed to giving sacrificially to the project. We can't do this without help from people who believe that Hughson should grow, in order to serve.
The total cost of the project is $18 million. We have secured $6.3 million in government funding for the housing portion but we still need another $4.7 million to finance this project.
