The Life Tabernacle Story

Life Tabernacle as a church congregation had its beginnings in the middle of the 1970s under the leadership of pastor and founder Rev. Lloyd Williams. The small group of believers held their first services at a former Anglican Church hall on the Lincoln road. These humble beginnings would prove to be a sufficient foundation for what God had in store in the future.

It was not long after their early beginnings that they acquired a parcel of land at 1644 Hanwell Road near the Hanwell Mini Home Park and the congregation began construction on a new and larger church building. The building on the Hanwell Rd. with a united effort was completed and dedicated in 1978. During this time there was not only an enlargement of their church sanctuary but the congregation under the leadership of Pastor Williams had grown considerably. Although there have been changes over time the congregation still presently meets at that location.

Life Tabernacle and its ministry and members have always been interested in making a contribution not only to the quality of life of its members but also to the city of Fredericton and the world. The church from its earliest beginnings has had an interest in not only bringing ministry to its adults but also to the young and those outside the walls of the church as an institution.

Life Tabernacle has made contributions to missions efforts in foreign lands and at home. It also has demonstrated a concern for those unfortunate and forgotten by society, the homeless and the prisoner. In whatever way its members can they try to share God's love with who ever they can. In its over 30 year history Life Tabernacle has had two Pastors: Rev. Lloyd Williams from 1976 to 1991 and Rev. Terry Messer from 1991 to the present day. In these years of Christian service, the Life Tabernacle congregation has nurtured many men and women into active Christian service in North America and around the world.

The Life Tabernacle Congregation will continue to contribute to the quality of life of its members and the community it is called to serve.
