We are a group of Christians committed to living to the glory of God in the heart of Toronto. We have a passionate desire to tell others the good news of God's forgiveness of sin through the sacrifice of his Son, Jesus Christ. We began as a church plant of Grace Fellowship Church in 2009, and are now an independent member of the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches.

*Please Note*: On December 1st, 2019 there will be no morning service at 918 Bathurst. Instead, we will meet at 4pm using the building of West Toronto Baptist Church. Directions: here
During our 11am corporate worship service, there are three options available for children 5 and under. Children over 5 are invited to join us in the main service (there are colouring books and "Action Bibles" available, if desired).
Just before the sermon (usually during the third song), our children's programming begins.
For kids aged 2-and-a-half to 5, we run a teaching program called Hide N' Seek Kids in a basement classroom. For curriculum details, click here.
For kids under 2-and-half, we have supervised childcare available in a room beside the main auditorium. This is not a fully-equipped nursery, but more geared toward young toddlers.
We do, however, have a separate, private nursing mother's room available off the back of the auditorium for mother's and young babies. Mothers are also welcome to nurse in the main auditorium if they so please.
What to Expect
New City's corporate worship services are a blend of casual and formal, contemporary and traditional. The music we sing to God and to each other spans all of church history, including songs written today.
Our services typically last 80 minutes. Included in the service is a time of welcome and weekly announcements. This is followed by worship through song, prayer and reading the bible together. The center of our worship is the sermon, which is based upon a text taken from the bible and preached expositionally. After the service there is a time to enjoy one another's company over coffee and light refreshments.
It is our desire to not only worship God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, but to foster an environment where critical questions are freely asked and where people promoting worldviews contrary to the teaching of the bible are tolerated with love and patience--although at New City, we worship the God of the bible. Wherever you are on your journey of faith--even if you are very skeptical--we would love to have you with us. That is why we are here.
