New Vision United Church is an inclusive, diverse community of Christian faith that encourages the gifts and graces of all people. We are committed to pursuing our ministry through loving God and actively sharing with our neighbours.
Here is our safety plan effective Mar 26 2022 : i) we will form the circle again in the lower hall, distancing the seats by a metre for the time being. ii) people may join the circle if they are willing to wear a mask. The reason for the masks is that we will allow ourselves to sing, and masking reduces the distance air we expel travels with the increased effort of singing.
Our in-person gathering continues to require your use of a mask. We strongly encourage vaccination, but know that there are barriers for some people and we desire not to create more.
New Vision is discovering what God is doing in Hamilton’s urban core and participating. We believe that justice for persons experiencing marginalization is fundamental to the creation of an inclusive beloved community. Out worship is experiential, participation, image rich and collective. Our ministry is intercultural and affirming.
New Vision United Church began in 2014.
