Benton Street Baptist Church is located in the heart of historic Kitchener, Ontario. It was founded as the first German Baptist church in Canada in September, 1851…Benton was a German-speaking church for more than sixty years, changing to all English in 1918 after the conclusion of World War I. A large sanctuary was built in 1883 with Sunday School facilities expanded in 1901, 1927 and in 1953. The main building was destroyed by fire in 1963 and the present facility was opened in 1965.
