Who We Are

We are a member of the United Church of Canada, and we offer a non-traditional approach to exploring spiritual beliefs and how they can influence your life.   As part of the United Church of Canada, these are our shared beliefs - what-we-believe.

Our History

The Visions story began with a leap of faith but it is grounded in living our values of Extravagant Openness, Innovative Spiritual Growth, Abundant Generosity and Uncommon Boldness.

Visions was formed when two United Church Congregations shared a common interest in building a church that could thrive and serve in today’s world. To move us in this direction, we first had to tear down all the existing ideas of what a church should be. We choose to be the church everywhere we can, to make a positive change in the life and health of our planet and all who share it.

We made our home in North Moncton: A fast growing area with a diverse population and until we arrived - no United Church presence. In 2020 and 2021, a time where the world stood still and six feet apart, Visions forged forward building a new home at the Community Hub on Joyce Avenue. Our roots are planted on Joyce Avenue yet our work – our Vision – lies beyond our doors.

Our “Vision” for being a different kind of faith community is taking shape: not just in the building but in our hearts and minds as we evolve our understanding of the Spirit of God and explore life’s questions in ways that make sense in post-modern Christianity. We seek to be a diverse, open and innovative community finding meaning and purpose together.

With community relationships in mind, our Community Hub Engagement Team (CHET) has been engaging area residents and conducting interviews with community organizations, citizens and not-for-profits to learn more about the wants, needs, assets and gifts that will shape the community relationship we wish to build.

At Visions, all are welcome. 

A new Ministry

We are Visions United, and we believe that a church is not a building; it is a community of spiritual people with open hearts and minds, making a difference where they live and in this world.

Our United Vision

We reach out to families, strengthening and supporting them so that they will thrive in our community.

We embrace our seniors. We value their wisdom.

We respect youth and young adults as equal partners in our congregation. Through learning exchanges between the younger and older people in our congregation and community we are building a multi-generational community.

We develop our faith and address our present and future spiritual needs through education, bible study, small discussion groups, and spirit-renewing retreats. This deepening of faith will strengthen our connection with God and each other.

We have a leadership and music ministry team to support church activities.

We offer a variety of programs, activities, types of music, and Spirit Gatherings to allow the busy multicultural people of the greater Moncton area to get the most from their spiritual experience.

Our Values

Since 2011, Visions United has developed a unique personality and culture that reflects who we are, what we believe and how we live our faith
