Welcome to The United Church of Canada, a church with a rich, progressive, and continuing history of welcoming all in the name of Christ. 

The United Church of Canada came together in 1925, through a union of Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregational, and other Christian churches – one of the first ecumenical unions in the world to bring together major Christian denominations into one body. 

"We are not alone," is the first line of "A New Creed," one of our statements of belief. The United Church of Canada has a long history of welcoming people of all backgrounds and orientations – wherever you are in your faith journey.

Join us and find out more about our history, organization, beliefs, and the ground-breaking decisions the United Church has taken.
