Welcome to the CHWUC Website!

Welcome - Cole Harbour Woodside United Church is a Christian community where people genuinely care about each other; a place where faith and action are intertwined and where all, regardless of age, sex or status, are considered part of the family and encouraged to develop their faith through worship, education and service.

The CHWUC’s mission statement is, “offering the care and comfort of Christ”. As our minister, Rev. Dr. Susan MacAlpine-Gillis, states in her welcome letter to new members, “We are a church that believes in putting our faith into action. We place a high priority on inclusion, participation, education, and celebration. Our doors are open to one and all.” This is seen clearly in both our Sunday services and in every other aspect of our church. Each Sunday you are met by friendly faces throughout the sanctuary and hall. From the beautiful music by our pianist, the children’s voices in call to worship, the fresh flowers donated each week, the performances by our choir and other guests, all the way to the sermon, you instantly feel the fellowship of our congregation on your first visit.

Our hope is that with this website you can find out everything you need to know about the church from who we are, where we come from, and where we are going, to our various ministries, types of worship, outreaches, and building rental inquiries.  If you can't find the information you are looking for send us an e-mail or give us a call.  You can also follow us on Facebook.

The Cole Harbour UCW Unit is looking for new members who might be interested in joining their unit.  Meet­ings are held on the first Monday evening of each month @ 7:00pm in the Meeting room.  For more info or if interested, please contact Dolores Adams @ 902-434-9243

Can You Help….?  Our UCW Unit is in need of some help.  They are looking for some additional people they can call upon who would be able to provide donations of food when the Unit is cater­ing funeral receptions here in the church.  If you are available and interested, please contact the church office.  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Gift Cards...as you buy your weekly groceries you can give an extra gift to the church and it won’t cost you a dime.  Buying Sobeys or Su­perStore  Gift Cards is a great way to support the church. The church buys them in bulk and receives a 5% discount.  If you spend $500 a month on groceries, and pay for them with gift cards bought from the church, you will  have donated $25.00 to the church.  That may not sould like much, but if 100 church families did that we would have an ex­tra $2,500.
