We are an urban village church with all of the resources and opportunities of a city congregation, yet with the home-town feel of a small-town country church.
Our church logo shows a bend of a river, encompassing a cross and trees, symbolic of our community. The area is bounded by the Red River to the east, the St. Vital Bridge to the south, the CNR tracks and former shops to the west, and "Crazy Corners" or "Confusion Corner" (the junction of Osborne Street and Pembina Highway) to the north.
Reaching out to others...Our connection to the community is important to the life of this congregation and you will find our building is home to many groups who use it regularly: children's groups such as the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders; 12 step groups; arts groups such as the Sweet Adelines, and Shoestring Theatre group, and many service groups looking for meeting or event space. It's our vision to provide a gathering place for the community where people of all ages, stages, faiths and beliefs can come together to seek support, dialogue, and lively exchange through many expressions.
Providing a place of meaningful worship, comfort and strength in the community...In any community at any time there are people who are grieving, struggling, walking a rough road alongside those who are rejoicing and celebrating life's milestones. It's our purpose to provide worship experiences open to all, caring of all and pastoral in its feel and message. Many say they leave worship each week feeling strengthened, hopeful or at peace within themselves, renewed for the coming week.
Fostering global awareness and life-changing relationships...There is within Churchill Park United a core passion and interest in global and environmental issues. We support and encourage the protection of our world, God’s Creation.We are in partnership with the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Varadero, Cuba.We have a strong partnership with the Oak Table Outreach Ministry, supporting it with Volunteers and resources.It's our vision to provide such life-changing relationships and opportunities on an on-going basis, whether through challenging events or new exposures, through the deep compassion shown by our church community in times of need, through personal friendships formed, or by our everyday world turned upside down by the eyes of faith. The most powerful, transforming relationship is our relationship with the Spirit of God who continues to do amazing, surprising, healing and life-giving things among us and within us. It is this Spirit that moves us, is at the heart of us, and is continually calling us out into holy boldness for living life as God intends.
