Sacred Pause

“We know that many within our church will still not understand why each of us must bear the scar, the blame, for this horrendous period in Canadian history. But the truth is, we are the bearers of many blessings from our ancestors, and therefore, we must also bear their burdens.”
- The Very Rev. Bill Phipps, 1998, former Moderator of The United Church of Canada
Quoted in “Sorry. Why Our Church Apologized”


Kamloops 215 Children

We ask forgiveness.
We commit to justice.



McDougall Working Towards its Future

In April 2015, McDougall United Church became a designated Provincial Historic Resource by the Province of Alberta and a Registered Historic Site by the City of Edmonton.

In response to our need to find a viable future for McDougall’s building as a community resource, we have invited Trinity Centres Foundation to join us in our exploration of site development, and the potential of creating a new mixed-use community hub and adjoining mixed-use development with a church at its heart. We are collaborating with Trinity Centres to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To maintain and grow an authentic Christian ministry at McDougall.
  2. To continue to serve the local community and beyond.
  3. To re-develop our property in a way that would enhance ministry and provide a strong financial legacy for the future, while maintaining its historic significance.
  4. To accomplish this in a creative, timely, and leading way.

Members of the project team for McDougall Church are: Paul Conway, Larry Derkach, Gerald Watts. Also working with us are: Anna Bubel, Consultant, Edmonton; and Graham Singh, Executive Director, Trinity Centres Foundation, Montreal. An extensive reporting and info session for the congregation was held on Zoom and teleconference on March 7 and May 30 following the worship service.

McDougall Affirm (LGBTQ) Group

Programs at McDougall have been suspended at until further notice, however, the work of our LGBTQ2+ leadership continues off-site and is responding to various community issues and needs.
