Mission and Ministry
Living Faith is located in the family-friendly hamlet of Baxter, right across the street from the local elementary school. The congregation enjoys a loving partnership with the community and engages in local outreach and service.
Sundays at Living Faith
Our Sunday morning worship services are informal and welcoming. There’s no need to worry about what to wear or where to sit - come as you are and sit where you want!
Our Music Team, led by Janine Leonard, assists us in worshiping God using a variety of different music styles - from traditional to contemporary, global to bluegrass. Our messages are Bible-based and help us to discover how the ancient words of scripture can assist us in tackling the modern-day challenges of our time, leaving us with hope for the future and peace for today.
Rev. Jonathan Tait comes to us after serving churches in Dartmouth Nova Scotia, Campbellville, and most recently Whitby. He embraces walking in step with the Holy Spirit and celebrating the goodness of God in Jesus Christ. Jonathan and his wife Kate have been blessed with 2 beautiful young children, Jeremiah and Ellianna. In his spare time Jonathan enjoys reading, fishing, watching hockey, baseball, and football. His favourite books in the Bible are Jeremiah and John’s
Gospel. He considers it a great privilege and responsibility to lead and serve everyone here at Living Faith. He is looking forward to getting to know the congregation as he settles into his new role.
“…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV)
