All are warmly welcome!
The people of Grace United Church are diverse. Some of us grew up in church, while some of us are new to Christian faith. We are busy toddlers, elderly people, and in between. Our first languages are English, French and other languages. What we have in common is that our lives are being shaped by Jesus Christ.
This is a community on a journey. We don’t have all the answers, so we travel together and with Jesus. We are listening to hear where God is calling us and figuring out together what it means to be the Church here and now. Wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here!
Grace United Church is part of the United Church of Canada. In this denomination, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are an important part of Jesus’ church. These (or other) identities do not determine one’s faithfulness. What is more important is what we share: our reliance on God’s grace, God’s deep love for us, our trust in Jesus, the movement of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, and our commitment to following in Jesus’ way through prayer, worship and loving service.
Grace United Church was formed by a blending of five United Churches in Cantley, Chelsea, Gatineau, Rupert and Wakefield. Most (but not all!) of the people of Grace live in these communities. We seek to be part of Christ’s Church right here in West Quebec. All are warmly welcome!
