We invite you to join us on the journey!
On behalf of the congregation at Northminster United Church we are delighted to welcome Rev. Kevin Derry as our new Minister effective July 1st 2019. At a congregational Meeting on March 31st the selection committee reported that Rev. Derry was being recommended to the congregation. By an overwhelming majority vote Rev. Derry was to be invited as our Minister.
Rev. Derry has been at Trinity United Church in Peterborough since 2005, prior to that he served in Trenton and at two charges in Alberta.
We want to thank the selection Committee for their work and Rev. Lynda Hodgins for her service to our congregation. Linda will be with us until the end of June.
We are looking forward to having Kevin with us and to work with him to grow Northminster to greater heights.

We seek to be a welcoming, open and genuinely caring community of faith, and we hope that you will experience our warmth and vitality and want to be a part of who we are and who we will become. We offer many programs for people of all ages. There is opportunity to meet new people, to find support and healing for your stresses, to grow in your faith in God, to share your gifts for the good of the community, and to serve those who are in need.
Northminster's music program is a blend of traditional and contemporary. It includes a talented Choir which leads us in hymns and delights us with anthems. Our Sunday gatherings are relaxed and inviting, blending the relevant spiritual issues of the day rooted in the stories of Scripture. We are committed to being inclusive and valuing other faith traditions. Our theology is progressive while respecting tradition. There is not much dogma or doctrine but an opportunity to question as we journey to discover what the Spirit has for us both individually and as a community. Our weekly service is at 10am and there is always an opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee and a time of fellowship and fun. At Northminster, outreach is an important part of the ministry and there are opportunities to be involved with both local and global outreach. Our building is utilized by a number of notable organizations that are vital to this community. Come and be a part of this joyful, loving and nuturing Christian community.
We invite you to ask questions, to introduce yourself to our staff and congregation, and to write your name in our guest book so that we know you are among us.
