Our Mission

By the grace of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will represent Jesus as God’s Son by caring for the needs of our families, our community, and the world.

Our Worship Services

Currently; the pastoral charge is holding services in only one location each Sunday, at 10:00 AM. This is an extension of the former summer schedule. However, after April 2018, there will only be services in Consecon as the Carrying Place Church will be closed after the final de-consecration service on May 6, 2018.

January: Carrying Place   February: Carrying Place
March: Consecon   April: Carrying Place

Consecon Pastoral Charge was a two-point rural charge.  The two churches – Carrying Place and Consecon United Churches – are located 8 kilometres apart.  (click here for a map) Carrying Place began to share ministers with Consecon as early as 1844.

Historically, the charge also included churches at Salem, Hillier, and Melville.  Salem joined the Consecon circuit by 1908 and Melville in 1955. In 1967 these three small churches were closed.

Discusions were opened on amalgamating the two congregations in April 2017. After a positive vote for amalgamation, and with guidance from Presbytery, the amalgamation became official January 1, 2018
Since then it was decided to offer the Carrying Place property for sale, and in January it was put on the market. An offer was received and acepted in February and became final on March 09, 2018 with closing in May. Click here to view a summary of proceedings thus far.

On May 6, 2017 a letter was created for dissemination to all members and adherants for their information. (Link below)

Community Profile

Carrying Place centres around the Old Portage Road, a road once used by First Nations peoples to portage their canoes between the Bay of Quinte and Weller’s Bay; it is the oldest road in continuous use in Canada.

The hamlet of Consecon, located in a growing rural area of some 2500 residents, is the gateway to beautiful Prince Edward County, known widely as “The County” and home to burgeoning wine, tourist, and artist/artisan industries. Agriculture still plays a prominent role in the area. The hamlet is located just off Loyalist Parkway on the shores of Weller’s Bay. The area is populated by a mix of young families, middle-aged working and retired folk, and seniors.

The United Church of Canada has clear policies governing conduct between and among clergy, employees, members and adherants. Consecon Pastoral Charge endorses and adheres to these policies and periodically reviews them to ensure we are in compliance.
