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.

Remits propose change to United Church of Canada structure: at 7:00 p.m. an information session will be held at St. Andrew's United Church to review remits from the 42nd General Council which are to be voted on by local Church Councils/Official Boards. We will look at the remit which proposes a change from our present four-court structure (Pastoral Charge, Presbytery, Conference, General Council) to a new Three Council Model, which in essence combines the function of Presbytery and Conference into one Regional Council. Other remits include one on Funding the New Model and one on an Office of Vocation for ministry personnel. Anyone interested is invited to attend.
