About Us

Cochrane Street United Church is a place where the generations meet to worship God, for fellowship and for outreach. Join us for worship on Sundays at 11 or the 3rd Saturaday of the month for Messy Church.



Cochrane Street United Church is Canada's most easterly United Church.   The church is located in the historic east-end of downtown St. John's. Its distinct architecture is accentuated by a vaulted dome which creates a brilliant acoustic. The four-manual Casavant pipe organ is recognized as one of the finest in eastern Canada.


The Ministries Committee coordinates a number of outreach activities that are supported by the entire congregation.


Bags to School Program

In partnership with Bridges to Hope, each year the church helps stuff over 600 school bags with school supplies to be distributed in the community, to ensure each child starts the school year with the tools they need.


The BBQ in the Park


Every summer the church hosts a free BBQ for the downtown community and for those less fortunate. It is a day filled with fun, music and fellowship.


Deal of a Meal


Each spring the church offers "Sunday Dinner" for those in the community in need.


Sunday School


The children of Cochrane Street also learn the importance of community service. The Sunday School supports a number of charitable projects including Street Reach, the SPCA and Gifts With Vision.
