We invite you to visit us and participate in the many weekly activities for adults and youth as well as to worship with us on Sunday mornings.
Trinity Presbyterian Church in Hamilton is the healthy child of two strong parents: Eastmount Presbyterian and St. Enoch Presbyterian Churches. Both the parental Churches had been strong Christian faith communities for decades.
During 2005, St. Enoch was into its 80th year of worship in downtown Hamilton. In March of this same year, Eastmount celebrated its 50th year on the Hamilton Mountain. These Churches brought together a strong commitment to Christianity and to the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
On April 1st, 2005, Trinity Presbyterian Church was established through the amalgamation of the Eastmount and St. Enoch congregations. The Presbytery of Hamilton officially constituted the new congregation on April 3rd and inducted the Rev. Dr. Philip Wilson as its first minister. Under the leadership of Dr. Wilson, this new congregation was recognized as an exciting and vital Christian community ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Following the retirement of Dr. Wilson, we continue to serve the community under the leadership of Rev. Matthew Lingard.
Our Minister: Matthew Lingard feels incredibly blessed to be Trinity’s new minister as of April 2017. Prior to being ordained and called here, Matthew served as pulpit supply and as a family pastor at a number of churches in the Hamilton Presbytery. He completed his B.A. and B.Ed. at Brock University, his M.T.S. at St. Michael’s College (University of Toronto), and his M.Div. at Knox College (University of Toronto). He is married to Lisa, and they have two beautiful daughters, Evianna and Adelyn, who are new additions to the Trinity family. Matthew is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with others and he looks forward to the exciting things God has in store for Trinity and the neighbourhood that it serves.
