The Winchester United Pastoral Charge is part of the Eastern Ontario Outaouais Region. Geographically, the region is large, extending east to Hawkesbury, Ontario and Chelsea in western Quebec, west to Denbigh, south to the St. Lawrence River and north to Nânâdônok. We gratefully acknowledge the traditional unceded lands of Indigenous Peoples on which our buildings and ministries have been built.
We are made up of two congregations, Winchester United Church and Hope Springs United Church. Each is unique in its makeup, but coordinated in central administrative functions. Our pastor ministers to both congregations and all members of the Pastoral Charge.
The EOORC upholds the beliefs of the United Church of Canada. Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, our mission is to offer compassion and love to those in need, to welcome newcomers into our community, and to help people grow in their relationship with God.
