Lowville-Nelson is a pastoral charge that was created in 2004 to serve the needs of North Burlington. Both churches have a long history of continuous service in their respective communities and look forward to continuing this service.
Both churches are smaller than the urban churches and still retain their rural character The congregations of both churches cordially invite you to visit on Sunday morning.
Our regular service times; 9:30 am at Lowville and 11:15 am at Nelson.
All are Welcome!
Everyone is welcome to both. Come and join us!
Rev Daryl Webbber
I am Rev. Daryl Webber.
I grew up in Erindale United Church just east on Dundas. While there I became a candidate for Ministry and went to Theological College in Halifax. South-east Saskatchewan became home upon Ordination in 1996. I offer thanks to the churches that have nurtured and been places of formation for me. Blessed with such a gift, I pray I will pass such a gift along over my lifetime!
After three years on the Prairies I returned to Ontario and most recently served Ebenezer and Eden Mills United Churches. Since then my family and I have come down the Guelph Line to Lowville and Nelson! It is a big change to leave the familiar behind, but the community here is fun and Spirit-filled!
Some favorite things about church and Ministry that I thrive on:
church can be creative places, it is multigenerational, there are interesting lay people with wonderful stories, wisdom, gifts and a desire to offer themselves.
Spiritual direction is a great gift of the church and happens in many ways.
Church is a place I have found that encourages growth of its leaders and followers. At its best the community has found belonging and it in-turn nurtures belonging. Congregations do so, not because it wants bums in its pews but rather they love people, value them and are interested in their journeys! Interested and self-realized congregations are gifted in welcoming the Christ into their midst.
I do hope, as you come through the doors of Lowville or Nelson and get to know us you will feel a growing sense of “home, belonging, and encouragement”.

We continue to pray for all affected by Hurricane Matthew, including those in the Caribbean and southern United States.
