God bless you, and thank you for visiting our website. 

​The Norwood-Westwood Pastoral Charge is part of The United Church of Canada and meets in distinct "church locations" - St. Andrew’s United (Westwood) and Norwood United.

Located in beautiful Asphodel-Norwood Township, in Peterborough County, our church locations were established in the 1830's and continue to witness to the love of God in Christ in an ever more complex world.  For more than half a century, the people of Norwood and St. Andrew's have brought their resources, distinct personalities  and histories together in partnership as a  “Pastoral Charge.”  

Our Mission:

Here's how we express our Mission:

​​We, the people of the Norwood-Westwood Pastoral Charge are striving to be a Christian community.

We live our faith by worshipping God together in Christ, welcoming, respecting and caring for all people, learning and growing in the Spirit, valuing our heritage and nurturing our children, and extending ourselves beyond the church walls into the world.

Spiritual Care (from Rev. Don):

The “Covenant” between me (as "the Minister"), our two congregations in The Norwood-Westwood Pastoral Charge, and The United Church of Canada (represented by the East Central Ontario Regional Council), assumes that my various pastoral activities are undertaken in cooperation with the Elders (members of Session) who oversee the spiritual life of the church.   In living out these activities, I try to honour, celebrate and seek justice for people of every age, gender, racialized experience, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental and physical health or ability, or economic circumstance.  I encourage all our members and families to learn, grow and be living signs of Christ's loving embrace of all humanity in all our wondrous God-given diversity.  We're not perfect in this endeavour.  Praise God for the room we're all given to grow...!
