A short drive from Regina, located in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley, hugging the south shore of Last Mountain Lake, is a piece of paradise known as Lumsden Beach Camp. Lumsden Beach Camp did not happen by chance. It was created by faith filled people who had a vision. Since 1905 this camp has been a special place where adults and children come together. Still today we come to this special place making lasting friendships, connecting with the sacred and having tons of fun!
he Halo Project is a community outreach program based in Lumsden, Saskatchewan and area designed to impact people in the community in personal, practical ways by matching those who have a need with those who are able to give. The project is a collaborative effort between All Saints Anglican Church, Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, St. Andrew’s United Church, St. Peter’s Catholic Church and others passionate about serving our community.
Living Skies Regional Council came into being on January 1, 2019, as part of The United Church of Canada’s restructuring. This was the biggest reorganization since the church was formed in 1925, and it involved saying goodbye to presbyteries (sub-regional governance bodies) and Conferences (regional governance). These bodies were a deeply important part of our ministry in Saskatchewan and its communities. Now we are living into being one governance body instead of two, as the church’s context continues to change, and we strive to find new and different ways of serving our communities. We hope this website will tell you some of our vision and story.
Welcome to The United Church of Canada, a church with a rich, progressive, and continuing history of welcoming all in the name of Christ.
The United Church of Canada came together in 1925, through a union of Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregational, and other Christian churches – one of the first ecumenical unions in the world to bring together major Christian denominations into one body.
“We are not alone,” is the first line of “A New Creed,” one of our statements of belief. The United Church of Canada has a long history of welcoming people of all backgrounds and orientations – wherever you are in your faith journey.
Join us and find out more about our history, organization, beliefs, and the ground-breaking decisions the United Church has taken.
EDGE: A Network for Ministry Development began in 2011 as a three-year project focused on new and renewing ministries across The United Church of Canada. In 2014, it was integrated into the periphery of the Church in Mission unit of the General Council Offices.
EDGE joins hands with those willing to take a leap into the promise; God breaking open the church, breaking into the world. EDGE is a living web of new and renewing ministries and leaders in the power of the Spirit, following Christ, embracing God’s mission in the world.
We work with congregations, presbyteries, conferences, regional councils, and ministries across Canada in areas of new ministry, renewing ministry, property, and innovation.
