We are a progressive congregation whose spiritual life engages both heart and mind. We express our faith through intelligent dialogue, a strong worship tradition and music program, and leadership within the wider community. While respecting relevant parts of our history and heritage, we are open to sharing new interpretations of theology and service in changing world that is always changing.
St. John's United Church of Georgetown and Glen Williams is part of the United Church of Canada. The United Church is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada with close to 3,500 congregations across the country. Known for its inclusive nature and strong commitment to social justice, the United Church focuses on those often overlooked in society.
The attributes of our approach to faith include:
We are not a church that has short, simple, definitive answers on the questions of life. We are instead a congregation where you can experience warmth and acceptance as we explore possible answers to those questions together. You are welcome to join us to think, feel and experience God in Jesus Christ. God is listening and so are we!

We chose St. John's as our church family because we found them to be a warm, welcoming, and open-minded community.
