Margaree Valley Baptist Church was established in 1835. It is now a congregation of about 100 people and has a vision to plant churches in every significant community around the Cabot Trail and along the coast to the Causeway. Margaree Church has planted churches in the communities of Baddeck (2010) and Cheticamp (2012) and Inverness (2015). Each of these churches now have their own pastor and have a heart to reach out with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
At Margaree Valley Baptist Church there are morning and evening services on Sunday, as well as various weekly groups for children, youth, and adults. Everyone is welcome to join us at any of our weekly meetings.
Nursery is provided during our Sunday morning service for infants 0 – 3 years old. We also have a very active Sunday school program for children that are 3 -12 years old. The program starts part way through our morning service at 11:30am.
Hugh Morrison is the Lead Pastor at Margaree Valley Baptist Church. He returned back home and began his ministry here in 2001 with his wife, Tracey, and family (Carey, Abigail, Timothy, Emma, and Hannah). Hugh’s desire is that the Lord would move in power through the Holy Spirit, revive the church, save the lost, and raise up local churches in every community across Cape Breton Island.
Scott MacPhail joined staff as Youth Pastor in September 2013. Scott, along with his wife Melissa, are excited that God has opened the door for them to return home to minister in their home church. They welcomed their first child, a little girl, Kaylin in March 2014. Scott’s desire is to see young people raised up to follow Jesus passionately and whole-heartedly by the power of the Holy Spirit.
