Welcome to the St. James and St. John United Church website. Our church and Maple Glen United Church form the Newcastle Pastoral Charge.

Our weekly services are attended by a congregation drawn from nearly three hundred families, and our guests and friends. We also have a large and active Sunday School.

Located in Miramichi, New Brunswick, the church was built following the Great Miramichi Fire of 1825. The church and grounds were designated as a provincial historic site in 2004. Read more about our church history.

(The office hours of the minister demand flexibility due to unexpected issues. There may be times when Rev. Alice is unavailable during these hours due to commitments away from the office). Appointments are recommended to be made to speak with the minister.

Our children love beginning Sunday School with a little treat. In this time of the year we serve them with hot chocolate and cookies. We need you (if you are able and willing) to help us to bake muffins, cookies, etc. Please let Rev. Alice know when and how many dainties you can bring. You may bring them any time because we can keep them in the freezer. Thank you very much.

St. James and St. John is responsible for the Salvation Army Friendship Dinner on Monday, March 13. The Outreach Team is looking for 4-6 people to prepare and serve approximately 40 people at this supper. If you can help, either to cook and serve or make a dessert (we need 4 - 10x12 plain desserts) please contact Linda Treadwell, 622-0397.
