MWUC is a welcoming, hospitable, nurturing and affirming community of faith where all people are accepted and respected. It is our goal to provide space that will facilitate worship, recreation, learning, companionship and fun. We ask all who use our space to treat it with respect.
The Mill Woods United Church building was completed in 1993. The main floor consists of the Sanctuary, one meeting room (Lounge), one handicap-accessible washroom and church offices.
The Sanctuary is available for weddings, funerals and memorial services. It will seat 275 comfortably. There is room for wheelchairs and walkers.
In the basement there are men’s and women’s washrooms (both wheelchair-accessible), a nursery, kitchen and a hall. The hall will accommodate up to 200 people.
A loft overlooks the Sanctuary, which will accommodate 40 people. There are two loft rooms, one that is used as our Clothes of the Second Kind clothing bank, and the other as a meeting room.
A lift at the north-west corner of the church makes all three levels of the church handicap accessible.
