"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."

— Philippians 4:6

Who We Are

We are a congregation of friends, celebrating God’s presence among us and inviting others to join us.  We are like an extended family in that people of all ages enjoy being together and supporting one another as we live by our Christian values.  We try to be faithful to follow Jesus’ teachings and to continue the ministry he began.  Jesus reached out to all kinds of people with love and we try to do that too.

We are a congregation of the United Church, which is the largest protestant denomination in Canada.  It began in 1925 as an amalgamation of Presbyterians, Methodists, and Congregationalists, but now it includes people from many Christian traditions. The United Church is like a big tent in that it can encompass a wide variety of opinions and beliefs.

And we are growing.  We welcome new members every year and many of our newest members have taken positions of leadership in the congregation.  With the expansion of Fonthill and the new housing developments in Welland, we expect more people will find their church home at Fonthill United.

Fonthill United Church is a congregation with a long history. We’ve been here since 1842, having worshipped in several buildings.  Our current building was modernized in 1991.  It is completely handicap accessible and we are proud of it, as we are of our history.  But living our faith in the present and creating community inspires us to keep going.  As a community of God’s people, we invite you to join us.
