We would like to welcome you to our website which is your window to Northwest Barrie United Church. We are truly proud of our church and congregation. We are an active and growing congregation, open-minded in our thinking, and caring in our actions.
We have a thriving Sunday School and youth group, a dynamic music program, thoughtful and open-minded study groups, and inspiring Sunday worship services.
The moment that you walk through our doors you can feel the positive energy and enthusiasm. This is definitely a place of joy, hope and laughter! If you have been looking for a church for you and/or your family, we invite you to join us one Sunday morning. The welcome mat is out, the coffee is on…
Hope to see you soon!
NWBUC Refugee Family Update
We have reached over 50% of our goal to $40,000 for our refugee family!!! Many, many thank to everyone who has supported this initiative thus far.
As we continue to prepare for our family, we will be looking for a variety of supportive items from furniture to clothing. To learn more, about what we need and how you can help, please click here.
Starbuck's vs. Tim's Last Sunday we kicked off a new fundraiser. We want to determine if we are a “Tim Horton’s” church or a “Starbucks” church. The buckets are out, and we are inviting you to go without your coffee/tea/hot chocolate/latte one day a week and put your change in the corresponding bucket. Our goal is $1,000 by Father’s Day. Are you curious as to what the totals were this past Sunday? Starbucks $110.25, Tim Hortons $156.90. Keep bringing in your loonie and toonies and see if we can reach $1000 by Father's Day!
