Come Join Us for Sunday Service. Join God’s Family in the worship in the warmth of our sanctuary.

Highlands United Church

11305 64 St NW, Edmonton, AB, Canada



Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our church services as of March 15, 2020.

Please check back in regularly, as we will post updates.  Thank you.

We are pleased that you have given us this opportunity to share with you a glimpse of our Church Family. We are situated in the historical and charming community of “The Highlands” and we have been blessed with a Sanctuary and facility that is in keeping with the neighbourhood and just lends itself to worship. Thus we have the good fortune of having many inquiries about our services.

Our worship services are spiritual and Christ centered with a good mixture of the traditional and the contemporary. Our ministry of music soothes the soul, with a full complement of exceptional instrumentation from the pipe organ and grand piano to a full range of choirs including the handbells and hand chimes. There is a full Sunday School program and a supervised nursery.

Personally I have had the good fortune of ministering to this congregation now for a number of years. I have found them to be a most accepting and welcoming congregation that has always been on the leading edge of new interesting programs. I pray that you might experience the same.

Come and join us as we worship the Risen Christ!

In His Service

By God’s Grace
