About us

               The Hartman Church pre-1966                                                                       Mount Albert United Church today

 

A brief history of our congregation:

 

There has been a Christian presence in the Mount Albert village since the middle 1800's, provided by our Methodist and Presbyterian ancestors. In 1925 the congregations of the Presbyterian Church (White Church on main Street) and the Methodist Church (41 Alice Street) joined together to form the Mount Albert United Church. The Methodist building was used to house the congregation and the minister of the Presbyterian Church became the minister of the new joint congregation.  Since that time, our congregation has served the people of Mount Albert, and provided United Church worship for all who wish to attend.

 

Our present building was built in 1878. Additions were added to both the back and front of the church in the 1950's and 1960's. For many years the pastoral charge included Hartman United Church (on Davis Drive), until the Hartman Church was closed in the 1960's.  Stained glass windows from the Hartman United Church were installed in the Narthex of our church and church furnishings were brought to the Mount Albert United Church. The people of the Hartman congregation became members of the Mount Albert United Church.

      

The United Church of Canada:

In 1925, three Canadian church denominations created history as the United Church of Canada was born out of the amalgamation of The Methodist Church of Canada, the Congregationalist Church of Canada, and about two-thirds of the Presbyterian Church of Canada. Since that time, The Evangelical United Brethren joined the union of the United Church of Canada.

 

The United Church of Canada has ongoing dialogue with many other Christian denominations and works willingly as an Ecumenical partner in the World Council of Churches. As well, it is involved with many national and international development and aid groups, government study and action groups, world peace organizations.

Baptism, Confirmation and Membership

 

Our congregation welcomes all infants, children, youth, and adults for baptism in The United Church of Canada. We hope to support all those who wish to explore faith in a community that affirms and includes everyone in a safe environment. Baptism is a spiritual ritual where God’s grace becomes visible through actions of water, word, and blessing. Everyone is welcome.
