Exalting Christ and Loving People

Plans are well underway for resumption of in-person services in the Fall. There is a new FAQ page which will answer many of your questions.

Each week we will be offering an easy-to-use real-time online worship experience. Along with the video of the worship service, this new platform will allow us to share prayer requests, encouragement and greetings in a simple to use chat format while the service is going on.

Steps to accessing AVBC Online Church

  1. At 10:30 Sunday morning go to the following link https://avbc.online.church/
  2. On the bottom right of the screen click the chat bubble and enter a chat statement (e.g. “Good Morning!”)
  3. A pop-up box will appear on your screen that will ask you for your User Name.
  4. Enter your name in the space and press “Enter”…and then enjoy the service and fellowship.

We are now having an after-church Zoom meet-up. It would be great to see you there!

If you can’t join us live through the https://avbc.online.church/ portal, the sermon notes, sermon audio, and service video (from 10:30 Sunday) will be available, as usual, from the first sermon post listed at https://altavistabaptist.org/category/sermons/


Due to COVID-19 public gatherings are currently paused…but we still have a lot going on and God is at work!

Have a question? Need someone to talk to?


There is a new page summarizing ways which you can support the ongoing financial needs of the church, even while we cannot meet in person.

Annual General Meeting postponed to this fall:
On Tuesday, May 26th we received written confirmation from our lawyers, Carters Professional Corporation, that Corporations Canada (Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada / Government of Canada) has granted an Exemption Order allowing us to delay our Annual General Meeting. We will be required to call our AGM no later than December 31, 2020.  Our proposed date for the AGM, June 23, will now be pushed back to this fall, hopefully sometime in September. Please watch for further updates.
