A Note from Our Minister, Kevin Derry

Welcome to Northminster United Church, Peterborough website.  We thank you for taking the time to look at our site and learn a bit more about our faith community.

Our accessible building is located at 300 Sunset Boulevard and we meet every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship and Sunday School.  In this COVID-19 environment that we find ourselves, we have taken measures to ensure to the best of our ability, everyone's safety.  We are limited to 82 people in our Sanctuary and ask that you pre-register if possible, by either clicking on the Eventbrite link at the top of the website or contacting the office for assistance [705-748-4881 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our Sunday School program commenced on Sunday, September 13th, 2020 and will continue until the end of May 2021 under the care of our children's coordinator, Hunter Masters and the Northminster United Church Christian Education Committee.

We are a welcoming, theologically progressive community of faith trying to live and love faithfully in complex and trying times.  We share our faith stories from the New and Old Testaments of the Bible, as well as other faith writings and stories that help us navigate the presence of the Holy in the context this time and place.
