McDougall Welcomes Rev. Dr. Bruce Miller in August!

Date: Sunday, August 25, 2019
Service Time: 10:30 a.m.

We are pleased to welcome Rev. Bruce Miller back to McDougall to share in our summer services. He is a distinguished scholar, religious and secular thinker and his message is rooted in progressive Christianity.

During Bruce’s long career, he has taught at the University of Alberta in the Religious Studies Department and also the Faculty of Extension. He has served as minister in United Churches in Alberta for more than 30 years. He has been a Fellow of the Jesus Seminar since 1990.

In addition to his service to the church and religious studies, he served as MLA for Edmonton-Glenora from 2004 to 2008.


Generous Financial Support Welcomed!

McDougall United Church was the recipient of two recent gifts totaling $3,000 from the Crescent Hill Fund and the David and Janet Bentley Family Fund through the Edmonton Community Foundation. These gifts have been made to the general operations of McDougall Church, and will be used in a manner befitting the donation.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of these generous donors who regard this historic church and community resource to be worthy and of value in our common life together. We are thankful and deeply appreciative to the donors.


Elevator at Your Service


The new elevator at McDougall has been installed, inspected, and certified for use! We are thrilled to be able to offer this service again to all users of this building. THANK YOU to RAM installers and EMCEE Construction & Management for their superb work and timeline achievement.

McDougall is a Breastfeeding Friendly Church

McDougall United Church bBreastfeeding logoecame Edmonton’s first official Breastfeeding Friendly church in 2013. In keeping with being an inclusive and welcoming church, mothers will not be asked to move or cover while breastfeeding. They are welcome to breastfeed anytime, anywhere at McDougall.

Business and public places in Edmonton who have adopted the Edmonton Capital Region Breastfeeding Friendly Policy for Businesses and Public Places are eligible to become official Breastfeeding Friendly Community Partners. Community Partners train their staff and volunteers to display a welcoming attitude towards breastfeeding mothers and children, not ask them to cover up or relocate, and to offer appropriate private facilities for women who ask. Training also helps staff handle other patron complaints about breastfeeding.

Community Partners display the International Breastfeeding Symbol. This lets Edmonton’s breastfeeding families know the facility is a safe and friendly space.
