A Worshiping Community
Services are held each Sunday at 10:30AM. Communion is offered on World‑Wide Communion Sunday, Christmas, Week of Prayer for Christian Unity,
Maundy Thursday, Easter, and Pentecost Sunday or United Church Anniversary.
Special services are held at various times throughout the year such as Topsy Turvey Worship, Sunday School Picnic, Memorial Song Service, Service of Compassion, Barn
Service, and Christmas Eve. A Service of Worship is held at the South Shore Villa on the first Tuesday of each month. We value sharing worship at Ecumenical gatherings
such as: The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Good Friday, Easter Sunrise service and breakfast, World Day of Prayer, and Remembrance Service at the Crapaud War
South Shore United is blessed with a very active Pastoral Care Team who assists the minister. The Pastoral Care Team provide a compassionate, confidential Christian ministry of practical and spiritual care, support, friendship and communication to those experiencing need, in ordinary times, as well as times of great joy or challenge.
The United Church Women have two units which meet regularly to provide a medium through which they may express their loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship and service. These groups welcome any ladies in the church for an afternoon or evening of fellowship.

Provides oversight for the development of programs and worship experiences for persons of all ages to explore. nurture, and grow in their relationship with God; fosters fellowship opportunities for all persons within the congregation; and provides means of connecting with the local community and wider world.
The Library is a resource available to all in the congregation and we encourage its use for group or individual devotional material. Adult Bible Study is held weekly during the fall and winter.
Evening Faith and Study Programs are also held periodically. The area of study is varied depending on leadership and interest.
Along with these programs we sponsor other fun and entertaining events such as seniors’ dinners, after service socials, and various types of fundraisers.
The congregation participates in a number of ongoing outreach projects such as the Christmas Giving Tree, Camp Abby, and local food banks. Fair Trade tea and coffee is used for all church functions and also made available for those who wish to purchase these items.
Disaster appeals, shared through the United Church, enable people to respond to needs
of the wider world around

The Senior Choir invites all who are interested in singing to join the choir. Practice is at 9:45 am on Sunday before the church service.
The South Shore Pastoral Charge is organized to carry out its mission according to a Unified Board Structure. The Board consists of 17-19 members selected by the congregation from full members, including two representatives to the Fundy St. Lawrence Dawning Waters Region, and the member of the order of ministry (ex‑officio).
