OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Cowan Heights United Church is an open, cooperative and inclusive community of faith and friendship. We are committed to a ministry that respects creation; provides examples of the presence and love of God and the ministry of Jesus Christ; reaches out in justice, love, friendship, and prayer within and for the Body of Christ here and around the world. "That all may be one" we are called together to continue our journey of spiritual enrichment and fulfillment.

 

WELCOME

Cowan Heights United Church is located at 141 Frecker Drive in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. St. John's is North America's oldest city, and Cowan Heights United is the newest United Church in the city.

As a congregation of Christian friends, we invite others to join with us for public worship each Sunday morning at 11:00 AM. During the worship service we offer a supervised nursery and Sunday school classes. There is also a youth group. Our church is wheel chair accessible. There is a family atmosphere in this congregation and people of all ages enjoy being together and supporting one another as we live out our faith. As Jesus reached out to everyone with God's love, we do not exclude anyone from the circle of belonging.

The United Church of Canada came together in 1925 as an amalgamation of Methodists, Presbyterians, and Congregationalists, but now it includes people with every kind of religious background. We are an inclusive church that makes room for a wide variety of beliefs and opinions. We all believe that God loves us and we want to respond by loving God and by loving our neighbors.

As a community of God's people we welcome new members. To learn more about our church and its program please follow the links on this website.
