Our Mission

As an affirming church…we welcome everyone regardless of age, health, race, gender, gender idenity, sexual orientation, family diversity, ability, economic circumstances, religion, spiritual and ethnic background, into the life and work at Northwest Barrie United Church.

I’m glad you stopped by to check out our church.
Whether you are new to Barrie, just visiting, or looking for a place you feel at home, we would be pleased to welcome you.

Come and join us on a Sunday morning, and experience for yourself the positive energy and excitement of NWBUC!!


Northwest Barrie U.C. is a unique kind of church.

We believe that a life of faith should be an adventure of discovery, curiosity, inspiration and personal growth.

We are a dynamic, forward-thinking and affirming church that welcomes everyone just as they are!!

We provide learning opportunities, social events, and our children and youth programs are thriving and exciting.

And we are committed to outreach and justice, doing what we can to help make Barrie, Canada and our world, a little bit brighter.


Children & Toddlers


Sunday School Coordinator

Children and Youth are important and valued members of our community at Northwest Barrie United Church!  

Each Sunday morning, children and youth participate in the service for the first part of the service.  After the children’s time with Rev. Phil, they are invited to take part in our Sunday school program, specifically geared to each age group.

Our Nursery is a welcome place for infants and children under 4 years of age. The Nursery volunteers are adults and youth who help supervise, and parents are welcome to stay if they wish. 

The Youth Group is a meaningful gathering for youth in grades 6 – 12.

Our Youth Group is open to youth in grades six up to grade twelve.  We meet at least three times a month for fun activities that include seasonal themed parties at the church, bowling nights, movie nights, outdoor activities, and Gym Night at a nearby school.

Outreach is a part big of NWBUC Youth Group. We encourage youth to get involved in the community by providing volunteering opportunities within the community.  The Youth Group gets involved with church events such as at dinners, Sunday School and nursery and any other area of interest.

Any youth is always welcome at our youth events whether they attend our church or not. It is a great opportunity to meet new friends and participate in fun, exciting activities in a positive and inclusive environment.

For more information please contact Sharon Foulkes at or call the church office.
