This is one of the most significant fall seasons for St James United Church in years.  Parkhill United is amalgamating with us in 2023. Over the following few months, select committees will be hiring a new minister and managing the amalgamation. What an exciting time for St. James United and the community.

Thanks in advance for your continued support and understanding as we start a new chapter in 2023. With the hopeful return of the dinner theatre next year, an increase in attendance, and an increase in PAR donations, we hope to get back in 2023 in full force.

Our Living Faith Profile Journey

Over the last few months a small group of people representing Parkhill and St James United have been preparing a Living Faith Profile as part of an engagement for a new minister. The attached document here - https://850aa85d-c355-4fb4-85a1-fa217620f20f.filesusr.com/ugd/20f8e8_ba54eda406b240f0a55671b0dad3f39d.pdf outlines our churches and their collective desires, wants and needs for the future. Please take a minute and review it. Thanks in advance. Once approved a posting for a minister will take place with a hope of getting a new minister in the Q1 2023. Many thanks to our current minister (Rev Helene Burns) for her continued guidance, support and worship and she heads to retirement. This is an exciting time for our church as we look for a new minister in the fall and consider Parkhill amalgamating with us.

Our Amalgamation

St James United continues to grow and be a pillar of the community with the amalgamation of Parkhill United into our congregation effective 2023. Over the next few months St James United will be welcoming Parkhill United as they merge with us effective Jan 1 2023. In advance of the final date a select group of members from the congregations will be defining a new governance that will welcome the Parkhill congregation. This will mean that for the first time starting 2023 we will be a single point charge funding a full time minister. Stay tuned for details as we both welcome Parkhill and a new minister in 2023. Thanks for your continued support
