Grateful for God’s loving action,
We cannot keep from singing…
We witness to Holy Mystery that is Wholly Love…
(A Song of Faith)
About The United Church of Canada
The United Church of Canada/L’Église Unie du Canada, which was formed in 1925 through the union of Canadian Methodists, Congregationalists, Local Union Churches, and 70% of Canadian Presbyterians, is Canada's largest Protestant denomination; over 2 million Canadians identify their religion as United Church.
Our crest expresses some key aspects of our identity. It features the Latin phrase “That all may be one” (John 17:21), a reminder that we are both a united and a uniting church, and the Mohawk phrase “All my relations,” in recognition of the presence and spirituality of Indigenous peoples in the United Church.
The United Church’s purpose is to serve God’s mission in the world, ministering to the needs of our members, communities, nation, and the world. In Canada, we support community and justice work, theological education, faith formation, and local ministries and ministers. Outside of Canada, we work with partner churches, Christian councils, ecumenical groups, and agencies to serve the spiritual and material needs of people in countries where we have established partnerships through the sharing of personnel and financial resources.
