The First Third Ministry of Chinook Winds and Pacific Mountain Regional Councils partners with United Church of Canada Communities, to inspire those in the first third of their life, to live Christlike lives of justice, hope, and compassion in the world.

Upcoming events offered by First Third Ministry:

Imagine Children's Retreat is an annual retreat open to children aged 8-12 and those who lead them. A United Church of Canada event, all people of diverse faith expressions, gender identities, and ways of being family are warmly welcome! Together, we become a multi-age and inter-cultural community sharing playfulness, meals, and connection with one another in a safe and welcoming setting. Come wonder about and explore faith through stories, worship, music, drama, and more, and deepen your relationship with God.

This year's retreat will take place February 23-25, 2024 @ Camp Alex in Surrey, BC. For more information and to register, visit
