An affirming church serving the community

Welcome – St Paul’s United Church has opened its doors for 165 years to those looking for open-minded exploration of spirituality and issues that matter to them.  Worship Service is at 10:20 on Sunday at St. Paul’s on Main Street.

 

The Kids Club has begun!

 

Thanksgiving Sunday – October 8

Rev. Anja is inviting people to say what they appreciate about the church during the service. Whether it is a stained glass window, or a person, or an “aha” faith moment. Not everyone likes to talk in public so you can write it down and give it to Anja and she will tell your story.

Vibrant Faith Community Seeks Full-Time Minister

St. Paul’s United Church, a single-point charge in Warkworth, is seeking a full-time minister to continue guiding us on our spiritual journey.

Like the village itself, St. Paul’s church is a vibrant and active centre of community activities.

Over the past year our ministry has seen the addition of new families, including ones with young children, and we are looking forward to growing and solidifying this segment of our worship community.

We also celebrate being an Affirming Ministry as part of Warkworth’s diverse community.

Our new minister will be warm, personable, outgoing and be prepared to engage in the life of the congregation and wider community.

Warkworth is a dynamic community in the breathtakingly beautiful Northumberland Hills where recreational possibilities abound.

Our community harmoniously marries the traditional, humble grace of rural life with an emerging urban culture of migrating families and retirees from the city.
