Directions

The United Pentecostal Community Chapel is located at 6115 Commercial Road in Lower Montague, PEI. After crossing the Montague Bridge while heading south you will notice an Esso Gas station on your right. Turn right at the station and go up the hill and you will come to a traffic circle. Keep going straight and you will find our assembly on the left just a few hundred feet past the roundabout. There is ample parking next to the building and a wheel chair ramp is available for those who need one.

 

When You Arrive

When you first arrive please find a seat and make yourself at home! You’ll soon be greeted by Pastor Sorrey.  If it’s your first time to visit, he may ask you to fill out a visitor’s card so that we can have a record of your attendance. We really are glad when someone takes the time to visit, and our pastor would like to send you a letter thanking you for attending our assembly.

Our services are filled with vibrant worship. We clap our hands, sing aloud, and offer heartfelt expressions of worship and praise. Please feel free to worship God in ways in which you are most comfortable. At prayer time we usually unite our voices together with the prayer leader. At the end of each service we shake hands with one another as a sign of friendship and fellowship in the body of Christ.
