Consecon Pastoral Charge is 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 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 have been opened on amalgamating the two congregations. This is a very important time for all members and adherants to be involved and to contribute to the discussion

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.
