Upcoming Gatherings

For all of January we will be thinking of our city as “Holy Ground.” We will be thinking back to why we live in Hamilton and how we have seen our city change. Some of those changes have been good and life giving and some of those changes have hurt people and pushed them further to the margins. As we look at our city we want to ask ourselves how Jesus might view these changes and how we can follow him better as we live in our local context.

Sunday Feb 4th at 6pm we will be having Potluck Supper while we talk about Lent and how we might enter into this spiritual season of reflection and fasting. If you don’t know anything about Lent that is OK, we are going to break it down together.

Our Feb & March Series is “Stations of the Cross.” For the Lent season we will be looking at Jesus’ path to the Cross and how that speaks into the world around us.

On Easter weekend we will have a Good Friday Gathering – March 30th at 10am, and a Easter Sunday Potluck – April 1st at 6pm.

LOCATION: Our worship gatherings happen 6pm on Sunday evenings at 128 Hughson St. N. in the Hooper Law Building.  We are right in the heart of downtown Hamilton, just one block north of Wilson St and one building south of Cannon St across from the Spice Factory.




Advent is a season of RISK. At The Commons we we are going to try and plug into that ADVENTurous spirit each week with:

  • Unplugged Christmas Carol Jamboree & Singalong: Each week the band & choir will be whoever shows up. Bring an acoustic instrument or grab one or ours and RISK joining on in.
  • Candle Lighting & Storytelling: The 4 traditional themes for the advent season are Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace. Each week someone will take the RISK of sharing a story related to one of our themes.
  • Hands On Learning: We like to RISK getting our hands dirty. Each week we will be making some art to add to our collective Christmas tree.
  • Reflection: Some of us have RISKED experiencing Christmas in new ways (sometimes even outside our own culture). We will reflect on how our traditions impact our experience of finding Jesus in the Christmas season.
