Ministries

Nursery/Sunday School

Trained and screened volunteers serve each Sunday, during worship, to provide a safe and educational environment for our children.  This program is organized by Alison Vassallo and Lic. Sharon White.

Small Groups

Transformers is a small group of folks aged 20 – 50 that meets Sunday evening for study.  They meet in a home on King Street, and often begin by sharing supper together.  They have been led by Pastor Jeff White.

Thursday Bible Study meets  in the Church Parlour at 10:30 am.  Led by  Angela Outhouse, this group is co-ed (formerly just women).

Monday Bible Study meets in the Church Parlour 1:30 – 3:00 pm.  Come early for coffee and conversation.  It is led by Pastor Jeff White.

Women’s Missionary Society

The “Eleanor Timpany” WMS meets monthly (first Tuesday of the month, at 2pm), and supports our Canadian Baptist global field staff (missionaries).  The group gathers to be informed about our world-wide mission work, to pray for our missionaries, and to support them financially.  The leader of the society is Amelia Whalley.  Newcomers are very welcome.

Men’s Fellowship

This group meets the first Tuesday of the Month, 7-9 pm, in the Church Parlour.  All guys are welcome to this time of sharing. It is led by our Pastor Emeritus, Rev. Don Robertson.

MUSIC MINISTRY

Concerts – Regularly, we host a concert of sacred music, often on a Sunday evening.  We have music provided by our own musicians, invited guests from around the province, including an African Heritage Celebration in February, and a program of Christmas music in December.  An offering is usually taken, and refreshments are often served afterwards.

Choir – Our Church Choir rehearses weekly to prepare music for Sunday morning worship, and special events.  Led  by Cairine Robertson, we meet on Tuesday evenings, 6:00-7:30 pm.  Contact Cairine if you are interested in joining us.

Men’s Choir – This joyful group meets from time to time to prepare music for some Sunday mornings, and other special events.  Directed by Bonnie VanTassell, you may contact her, or Peter Dickie, for more information.  If you are a man who can sing, please join us!  

Weddings

The Digby Baptist Church Building regularly hosts marriage ceremonies, and receptions can be held in the attached Hall.  The Pastor, Jeff White, also is happy to officiate at ceremonies off-site, in the local area.  Contact him to book him for your ceremony, or Church Secretary, Shelley Maas, to book the building (902-245-2113).

Funerals

We regularly offer the ministry of funerals, memorial services, and receptions at our building, and our Pastors are also available for services in funeral homes or other locations.
