Stony Plain United Church is a dedicated family that welcomes all. We pride ourselves on being open, friendly and inclusive. We work hard at building community within and respecting one another’s differences and showing empathy. We share many of the same values. If something needs to be done, there are always volunteers willing to lend a hand, which speaks clearly to our mission: “To reach out, through the Gospel of Christ, to minister to our congregation, local community, national and world families.”
The programs at our church change according to season, needs, and interests. Current ministries include weekly worship; Pastoral Care; adult study; Music and Choir; an Endings and Beginnings program to support those dealing with grief and death; Card Crafters; Quilts for Seniors; youth group program; and Sunday School.
The original sanctuary of our building was built in 1957, and in 1994, a large new sanctuary was added. Our Church is well-maintained; versatile; open for community programs; has a variety of meeting spaces to meet the needs of various sized groups and is shared with many groups.

Each week will be special and you may be asked to do something or donate something! We will let you know as we progress through Lent.

Is our world just falling apart at the seams? What to our future generations have to look forward to? What things can we do or not do to improve our world for ourselves and others? With so much sensationalism in the media and gossip on social media, how do we sift through so much information in order to set our priorities and form our own opinions?
This program consists of some recorded lectures that are available on the internet from world class academics and experts. We can listen to them present facts and hopefully lead us to better understand world issues. We will show these lectures right here in the church for you to enjoy and learn. Then we will follow up with some discussion. The links are noted so you can watch again or share with a friend.
