About Us

The Port Williams, United Baptist Church in Nova Scotia, Canada is an ecumenical, inclusive congregation, extending open membership and Communion table to all followers of Jesus Christ, and a full welcome to all into the life of our church, regardless of sexual or gender identity. Our worship is rich in a variety of music and forms, following the Revised Common Lectionary through the Church Year.  Our life together is marked by many opportunities for learning, service, and fellowship.
We are a member of the Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada, the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms (formerly the ABF), and the Wolfville Area Inter-Church Council. We warmly invite you to join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 o’clock, and for any of the activities in the life of our church. For more information about our church, or just to be in touch, please send us an email or call us.

For Lent:

The Citizens for Public Justice organization has suggested that what we should give up for Lent is the misuse of our environment. For suggestions, click Give it up for the Earth

We welcome our New Minister – the Rev. Dr. Don Flowers

At a specially called congregational meeting on October 11, members unanimously accepted the recommendation of the Search Committee and issued a call to Rev. Flowers.  At the time, Dr. Flowers was serving as minister of the Providence Baptist Church, Charleston, South Carolina. Providence Baptist Church shares many values in common with The Port Williams United Baptist Church and Rev. Flowers has provided the church with inspiring and compassionate leadership.  Don and Anita are looking forward to the “adventure” of life in Nova Scotia and providing leadership to this vibrant congregation.

With Gratitude…

We are thankful for, and appreciative of, the ministries of the Rev. Barbara Bishop, Interim Minister, and the Rev. Liz Johnson, Interim Minister of Pastoral Care, who led us through our 18 months of transition. It was a growing and healing time during which the church strengthened its resolve to minister in the name of Christ and value and care for each other even more deeply. Barbara and Liz provided compassionate  care and direction and always reminded us of the healing power of God’s grace and His power to lead us anew. Thank you Barbara and Liz!
