Q: Do you practise the Lord’s Supper (Communion)? How often?
A: Yes, each Lord’s Day.
Q: Who may receive the Lord’s Supper?
A: Any Christian, but we ask that each examine himself (Read 1 Corinthians 11:23-32)
Q: Which English Bible translation do you use?
A: You are encouraged to bring your own Bible. We use the ESV (English Standard Version) for most preaching and teaching.
Q: How should I dress?
A: We present ourselves as informal. No one is turned away because of their clothes!
Q: What is there for our children?
A: Families worship together on Sundays at 11 AM. Children attend worship with their parents. At the parents’ option, children go to a children’s church during the sermon. Children grade 5 and above normally remain with the parents to hear the sermon.
Q: What other service times are there?
A: Our Bible studies times vary from season to season. Please call 905-575-1544 or email us for more information.
Q: Is yours a “small church?”
A: Yes, for the present time. Please keep reading the following from the book, The Grasshopper Myth:
“I propose that the following is true about the New Small Church
We are not sick
We are not failing
We are not stuck
We are not incompetent
We are not limited in our vision
We do not need to be fixed
We are not less than…
We are God’s idea.
We are small. Because we are small we have blessings to offer the body of Christ, our communities, our cities, our nations and our world that no one else can offer in quite the way we can.”

Where exactly are you located in Hamilton. I use bus transportation How would I get there?
We are on Limeridge Road East, halfway between Upper James and Upper Wellington streets. You can take either the Upper James or the Upper Wellington bus–it’s not a far walk from either stop on Limeridge Road East.
Dear Pastor Jacobsen,
Greetings to you!
I recently learned about your church via The Gospel Coalition, which was referenced on Tim Challies’ website.
I am searching for a church in this area, and would very much like to attend a worship service at Mountainview, with your kind permission.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message. Please feel free to respond via email.
May God continue to bless your ministry!
