Pastoral Care Team

Despite the need for social distancing at this time, we remain spiritually close. Community and spirituality are a vital component of personal resilience. Glen Cairn United Church is a welcoming community. Our strengths, weaknesses, and individual differences are always accepted. We feel joyful and energized by being part of this community.

As we support one another, we remember to: 

The Pastoral Care Team members at GCUC  are praying for you. May you have strength, courage, good health and resilience. We will get through this and we will get through it together. 

Healing Pathway

The Healing Pathway Team offers in-person sessions at Glen Cairn United Church on Mondays. We can also make personalized arrangements for other times, places and methods.  Sessions are free of charge. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Healing Pathway is a Ministry of the United Church of Canada. We are not a cure for any medical condition, but we do provide support for self-healing of mental and physical distress.  

Do you know someone in the community who might benefit from a Healing Pathway session?  Healing Pathway members can adapt the sessions for anyone in need regardless of spiritual beliefs.

If you have any questions, or wish to make an appointment, please contact our Coordinator, Nancy Kerr at
