New to Highlands?

New-to-HUC-1
Newcomers are always welcome at Highlands! Whether you have always been a church-goer, or have only set foot in a church for weddings or Christmas Eve, you are welcome.

As a newcomer, you’ve probably got lots of questions. What happens on Sunday mornings? Will I feel comfortable? Do I have to commit to attending all the time? If I wasn’t raised in the United Church of Canada, will I know what to do? What kind of activities are there? What kind of people will I meet? Are there programs for my children?

At Highlands, we have a phrase: “Whoever you are… Wherever you are on your faith journey… Whatever you want to ask… You are welcome and accepted.” So come with your questions and have a look around.
