Fonthill is a residential community located in the centre of the Niagara Peninsula between Welland and St. Catharines. It is growing rapidly as it attracts active retirees. Brock University and Niagara College are nearby offering educational opportunities. The Shaw Festival Theatre, Niagara Symphony, Chorus Niagara, and the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre offer cultural opportunities. Between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, the area has many beautiful parks, trails, and recreational opportunities.

Fonthill United Church has enjoyed a remarkable stable ministry, having been served by only 3 ministers in the past 30 years. The congregation is financially sound and has:

  • good leadership with a 16 member Church Council
  • a gifted music director and excellent choir
  • typically 85 people at worship
  • an active Pastoral Care Committee
  • outreach that included Syrian Refugee Sponsorship
  • an interest in adult theological education
  • an inclusive marriage policy
  • a church administrator for 24 hours per week
  • and a well-maintained attractive building that is well used by the community.

Fonthill United Church

  • is able to pay a percentage above category F
  • and is willing to assist its next minister with a low to no interest loan to purchase a home in Fonthill.

The Search Committee is looking for a full-time ordained United Church of Canada minister with at least 5 years of experience in congregational ministry, to serve the congregation for many years.
