Message from the Minister
Whether you come with little faith or a lot; whether you come questioning or believing; whether you are new to the congregation or a long-time member; whether your spirit is broken or strong …
All are Welcome here!
We are called to Worship …
Our Barrhaven United Church family looks forward to our weekly Sunday Worship when we can be together – to sing, to pray, to reflect and enjoy some fellowship time after worship. Our periodic Messy Church afternoons provide a more relaxed and fun fellowship time for families (and others) to share God’s love and a meal.
Since on-site worship and other church activities have been suspended during this unprecedented time, we are currently gathering for Sunday Worship online. We invite you to join us for weekly worship on our YouTube channel
Weekly Sunday School for the children is over for the summer. Check out this website later in the summer for the fall start-up date.
And sent to serve …
We endeavor to follow Christ’s call to serve others, both within our congregation and beyond our doors.
Our pastoral care team is a listening presence for the congregation during these challenging times. Members of our team provide caring phone calls, offer Healing Pathway by long distance healing and lift up your prayers and concerns during Prayer Circle.
We like to learn! We enjoy exploring our faith and enhancing our understanding of social justice issues so that we can act in ways that are spirit led, respectful and informed. Although these activities are now finished for the summer, we invite you to be in touch with the office in the fall if you would like to join a Bible or book study, or meditation. Special events such as movie nights, guest speakers or presentations will be posted on this website. All are welcome.
Outreach has been an important part of our church’s history. We are the birthplace of the Barrhaven Food Cupboard, a founder of the Steepleview Crossing affordable housing community next door to the church, and a founding member of Multifaith Housing Initiative. We have been on an ongoing journey of learning and reflection regarding our relationships with our Indigenous neighbours. Supporting our neighbours continues to be an ongoing, integral part of congregational life.
Accessible & Inclusive
Fully Wheelchair Accessible
Once on the main level, all facilities are accessible. This includes Church offices (Minister and Administrator), washrooms, gym and kitchen. Washrooms are accessible on the main level.
Power Lift and Door Openers
enable handicap access to the church basement. It also makes it easier to receive and dispatch groceries from the Barrhaven Food Cupboard, increasing the building’s accessibility to congregation members and community users. This project was made possible with a grant by the Ontario Trillium Fund (OTF), a provincial government program designed to financially support volunteer initiatives to enhance Ontario communities.
Audio assisted hearing aids are also available from the sound technician before each service.
