Our Mission Statement

We are a worshiping community
     open to all who are seeking further maturity
          in our Christian faith

We are called by God through Christ:
     to love God and proclaim both Jesus and his Gospel
          within and beyond our congregation,
     to nurture spiritual growth and understanding,
     to offer care and opportunities for friendship
          within and beyond our congregation,
     to enable participation in Christ's ministry
          of justice and sacrifice
          in the Church and in the world,
     to exercise responsible stewardship of all gifts and resources.

We seek to respond creatively to the prompting of God's Spirit
     as we strive to fulfill this mission.

Vision Statement

Wilmot United Church is an open and welcoming presence in downtown Fredericton, putting our Christian faith into action to be a light in God's world. We welcome all into the life and ministry of our faith community, including persons of any age, ability, race, ethnicity, place of origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, family configuration, and social and economic circumstance.

Holy Communion

At Wilmot United Church we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion several times each year, including Easter Sunday and Christmas Eve.

In the Sacrament of Holy Communion, bread and grape juice are given and received in grateful remembrance of Jesus' last supper with his disciples. It is a means of spiritual nourishment and comfort and growth in grace.

(We also provide water instead of grape juice and gluten free crackers instead of bread for those with food sensitivities.)

This Sacrament of the universal church has been called by many names, each of which illustrates truth about the Sacrament. In the Anglican Church this Sacrament is known as the Eucharist. The term commonly used in the Roman Catholic Church is the Mass. In the United Church of Canada, it is generally known as the Sacrament of Holy Communion. All who seek to follow Jesus Christ are welcome to God's table to participate in this sacrament. The gifts of God for the People of God.
