United Church of Canada Chaplain

About The United Church of Canada

The United Church is the largest Protestant Christian denomination in Canada. We minister close to 3 million people in over 3500 congregations across the country. The United Church was formed in 1925 as a union of Methodists, Presbyterians and Congregationalist Christians, and we continue to enjoy a diversity of faith expressions while communing as a single body. More about the United Church of Canada can be found here.

Beliefs in more detail

The United Church prides itself on being open and welcoming as Jesus was, regardless of age, race, class, gender, orientation, or physical ability. We see each person as a unique, loved creation of God and welcome all people to the full life of the Christian community.

The Bible is the shared standard for our faith, but members are not required to adhere to a particular creed or formulation of doctrine.

The United Church views the religious practices of all people of goodwill with respect and gratitude. We believe the Spirit of God is at work in many different faith communities.
