Bloor West Village Baptist Church is a community of Christ followers in Toronto, Ontario. If you’ve never attended our Sunday morning services, we would love for you come in and meet us.

History of Bloor West Village Baptist Church

Bloor West Village Baptist Church began in 1928 when a group of about 80 left Runnymede Baptist to form Farmer Memorial Baptist Church. Initially, they worshipped in the Runnymede Bowling clubhouse. In 1931, property at the corner of south Kingsway and Larkin Ave was purchased and the first building (now the friendship room) was completed in 1933.  The ‘new church’ was completed in 2 phases.  The basement was dedicated in 1950.  The completed church was opened in 1957.

Our name was changed in 2014 to Bloor West Village Baptist Church.

Celebrate the resurrection of Our Savior Jesus Christ and the importance of his sacrifice in a joint service with Hallelujah Fellowship Baptist and Community of Christ’s Disciples.

5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.” Note: The enemies of God tried to stop what had already done. No matter how sure they thought they made it.
– Matthew 28:5-7 NIV
