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.
Sunday Worship at 10:00am
Our summer worship schedule begins on May 18th with one service at 10:00am. There will still be Sundya school / activity time for the children.
Sunday, June 8th
This is going to be a Spirit-filled Sunday morning as we celebrate the feast of Pentecost - sometimes called the birthday of the church.
We will also be celebrating the sacrament of Baptism, welcoming people by transfer of membership, as well as dedicating plant stands from Forest Hills United Church and our new stained glass windows.
It is also Anniversary Sunday and the conclusion of Sunday School so we will be having a BBQ following worship.
You are invited to wear colours of the Pentecost: Red, Yellow, or Orange.
Come and celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit.
