Streetlight is both a Christian ministry and a church, bringing glory to God through the gospel in downtown Hamilton.
Streetlight exists to share God’s word with adults and youth in the Beasley neighbourhood, to connect them with other Christians and the worshipping community, to help them grow in their faith, and to encourage them to serve others in order that God is praised.
Share God’s Word
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus commanded his followers to take the gospel and spread it to all nations of the earth. Sharing the gospel is not just a responsibility, but also a Christian privilege. Streetlight looks for different opportunities to present the gospel through personal evangelism and outreach programs and events.
Connect with other Christians
Coming alongside people in our church and community is important at Streetlight. God intends for Christians to be in fellowship with other Christians, to know they are cared for, to be held accountable, and to be encouraged in the joys and sorrows of their everyday life.
Every Sunday morning and evening there is a time for fellowship after the worship service. As well, weekly programs provide time to share and spend time together. We also encourage youth to attend Campfire, Roots Conferences, and other events hosted by the Canadian Reformed and United Reformed Church, where they can meet with with other Christian youth and grow in faith together.
Grow in Faith
Sunday worship services are an important time to grow in faith and to be recharged for the coming week. Maturing in faith is a lifelong process and can only be done by consistently studying the Bible and letting God work into our hearts. Weekly Bible study and catechism classes are other opportunities for us to learn about God’s promises and to grow in our faith.
While Jesus was here on earth he showed us that he not only cares for people’s spiritual needs but also for their physical needs. God has blessed each believer with special talents that can be used to help those around them. At Streetlight we look for ways to serve each other through personal relationships as well as through organized programs.
Worship is what we were created for. Each Sunday there is an opportunity to praise God together in our morning and evening worship services. Our services include praying, singing songs of praise to God, and hearing a sermon in which we learn more about God and our salvation through Christ.
Streetlight is supported and overseen by the Ancaster Canadian Reformed Church.
