Fort Massey United Church, watching over Halifax Harbour since 1871.

Join us Sundays at 10:30 am for worship weekly throughout the year, and with a staffed Church School and Nursery from September to June.

Sunday Storm Cancellations for the 10:30 AM Gathering: Often the decision cannot be made until the minister arrives at the Church at 9 AM to assess the seriousness of conditions around Queen & Tobin Streets. When in doubt, please call the church phone 902.423.4294 after 9:30 AM, by which time the message will have been changed indicating a cancellation. With major storms the decision may be made sooner.

Fort Massey, St. Matthew’s & St. David’s Refugee Committee: Three churches have banded together to sponsor a refugee family. We will need to raise $30,000.00 to support our family for a year. A volunteer group met last week to begin writing the application. Through a local family and their contacts we have a specific family in mind to sponsor. We would like to invite everyone to support our fund-raising campaign. In order to begin the fundraising at each of the three participating churches the Fundraising Committee proposes three possibilities: (1) mark your special contribution to your church “for refugees;” (2) consider making a contribution to the refugee fund in lieu of gifts, either from you or to you; (3) Sign a pledge card available during the coffee hour for a monthly amount for one year.  Information and gift cards will be available after the Service.

To donate to the Refugee Fund click on this link.

  Accessible Parking, SUNDAYS ONLY, is available on Tobin Street next to the church. Cars without permits will be ticketed.
