Welcome to Moncton Wesleyan!

This is week one of our Christmas Series, Love Came Down!  Pastor Joel will be speaking on God’s great gift to humanity, and how it leaves us changed!

Watch previous sermons online here!

We are starting the Christmas season off by collecting items for Harvest House!  We will be gathering outdoor wear and so much more for the homeless.  Please check out to see what Harvest House needs. Please put the items in the Because Love Changes Everything bin located in the atrium. Thank you for helping those in need here in our city!

Christmas Cafe is an evening of special music, delicious desserts, good coffee, and great friends. A relaxed evening of Christmas cheer. Our very own Moncton Wesleyan talent will be bringing various special musical numbers and we will be offering lots of goodies. Bring a friend, bring the family, and join us on December 15 at 7pm in the atrium.

NEXT will be happening December 16 after the service! This is a chance for newcomers to meet pastors, staff, and to learn about next steps in your faith journey. Pizza, drinks, and dessert are provided. Children are welcome. The event lasts for 45 minutes, and it is hosted upstairs in the Family Centre. We’d love to see you there!

This year’s Christmas Offering is going 100% towards tackling the issue of homelessness in our city! From now until December 23rd, all gifts specifically designated for our Christmas Offering will be calculated and at the end of the service that day, we will make a big presentation to Harvest House. This will provide for 14 new beds and washrooms to help those in their time of need! What an opportunity to bless those in our community this Christmas!

You & your family are invited to join us in celebrating the birth of Jesus this Christmas Eve! This music-filled, hourlong service starts at 6pm.  Spread the word, and we hope to see you there!

Christmas is traditionally a wonderful time for family and friends to all be together to share a festive dinner; however, for some people this is not always possible. This year we don’t want anyone to be “Home Alone” on Christmas Day. We would like to invite you to join us at the church for a Turkey dinner, board games and a movie on Christmas Day, starting at 2pm and ending at 7pm. If you are interested in joining us for this special Day, please register online at
