Welcome to
Woodbine Heights Baptist Church!


We are pleased that you have found Woodbine Heights Baptist Church (WHBC) on the world wide web.  We'd be even more pleased to greet you in person as we gather for worship, study, service and camaraderie at the corner of Woodbine and Sammon in East York. Our congregation takes seriously the call of God through Jesus to be present with and for our community. Our facility is constantly filled with activity, whether it be WHBC events or community group activities. Some of the activities include a Pastoral Counselling Education Group, Sparks, Brownies and Beaver Scouts, and an ongoing partnership with L'Arche Toronto.  Our Arts emphasis is sparking creative expression in the neighbourhood as well.

We are a congregation more interested in struggling honestly with the questions of life than dictating easy answers. We take the scriptures seriously without reading them literally, and value God's creation and our human lives and relationships as ways of experiencing God's presence in the world.  Among our small gathering are people from a variety of religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. We seek to be a people of inclusion and embrace, welcoming all persons who wish to be part of a community seeking and practicing faith in life.

Please join us on Sunday mornings at 10 o'clock for a time of reflective worship. Or if you prefer to connect individually with the pastor, give us a call at 416-467-1462. You can also email further inquiries to woodbineheights@gmail.com.

We hope to engage with you soon.

Sincerely,
bob paterson-watt, pastor
