Ever wanted a church like Cheers where everyone knows your name? Well, Arkell United Church is the place. Warm, truly friendly, gentle in its approach but filled with strong spiritual people. That's what you'll find. A church that aspires to live out its faith in Jesus in an open, inclusive way. We believe that being a Christian opens up one's life. A place of discovery and celebration with no pressure and no sales pitch! Worship is done in a simple and graceful way. Our goal is to mix the best of past generations with the best of today. In music, the foundation of the church is folk and old country yet we are beginning to use more contemporary songs with a bit of an edge to them. Guitars and piano lead the singing. The messages are passionate and down to earth - the prayers, sincere and genuine.
