Welcome —

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.

New Vision United Church has moved all worship gatherings on-line.
We gather at 10:30 am Sundays on Zoom. On July 11 we opened our Lower Hall for group participation in our on-line worship gatherings and are now following Provincial Step 3 protocols for social distancing. Up to 25 of us may gather in our lower hall for worship.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions on redevelopment of our 85 Holton Ave. S. campus. Our team has reviewed the results of our community engagement to date. Below is a summary of the results to date. — June 27 2021



Below are the lead paragraphs and a link to a Hamilton Spectator report (June 12 2021) on the Town Hall forums on June 10, 2021 that gives a summary of the redevelopment studies done to date. More information on which to base your comments and suggestions is available at www.85HoltonAve.com

A condo tower of up to 25 storeys — and no affordable units — is what it would take to restore St. Giles United Church, once on the path to destruction.

“But the team behind a plan to redevelop the site of the former church at 85 Holton Ave. S. says it doesn’t want the condos.

‘Our goal here is to build safe, stable housing for all,’ Tim Blair, CEO of the United Property Resource Corporation (UPRC), told a virtual forum Thursday.”

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.
