We are a welcoming community seeking to receive, enjoy,
and share the love of God in Jesus. No-one is ever alone.
The Life and Work of Our Church
We welcome you to our worship services, and hope you will take a moment to make yourself known to one of the ushers or ministers. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Kingsway-Lambton family, we invite you to sign the welcome card in the pew or contact the Church office. Please come again!
Members and Adherents
"so we, who are many, are one body in Christ,
we are members one of another" Romans 12:5
Individuals may become members of the church by transfer of membership from another church, or by profession of faith. Membership demonstrates support for Kingsway-Lambton United Church, allows one to become a member of Session and some other Offices, and to vote at congregational meetings.
The welcoming of new members takes place during Sunday worship service twice a year, followed by a lunch for new members and their families. Anyone interested in joining the church is asked to contact the church office.
Adherents may choose to attend without becoming a member. Everyone can be an active participant in our church life, attend worship, and volunteer in many activities, without becoming a member.

- The cornerstone was laid in 1936, but our roots date back almost a century to our Methodist heritage.
- On February 9, 1845, the opening service was held at the Lambton Methodist Chapel, which stood where 565 Prince Edward Dr. is today.
- On March 3, 1878, Lambton Methodist Church opened at what is now 4160 Dundas Street West. Sufficient funds were raised at the opening service to write off the debt of $300. The “rose window” may still be seen above the storefront, from the south side of Dundas St.
- In November 1928, land was purchased from Kingsway builder Robert Home Smith at a cost of $900.
- In 1934 the congregation joined with Lambton Methodist Church to become Kingsway-Lambton United Church.
- On Sunday, February 28, 1937, the opening service of Kingsway-Lambton United Church was held with an overflow congregation. Sunday School classes were held in the kitchen and furnace room.
- By May 1942 the transepts (extensions forming the ‘t’ or cross shape) along with a Sunday School wing were completed. The lot next door was purchased in 1943, on which the Rev. Wilfred C. Lockhart Chapel, honouring the Rev. Wilf Lockhart, and the West Wing, were completed in the 1950s to accommodate a burgeoning congregation.
- In 2006 accessible renovations were completed, including the inviting, light-filled western entrance, the elevator and lift, and accessible washrooms. The main kitchen equipment and a number of meeting rooms were upgraded.
