Nobleton, Ontario , L0G 1N0
St. Paul’s Church, Nobleton seeks an individual to lead the congregation, both in person and online, in the praise of almighty God each Sunday, beginning as soon as possible.

About the congregation
St. Paul’s Church is a congregation in the evangelical Reformed tradition (affiliated with The Presbyterian Church in Canada) located in the town of Nobleton, Ontario, in the heart of King Township. With a growing and diverse population of approximately 7,000 people, Nobleton is surrounded by rolling hills and horse farms near the ecologically sensitive Oak Ridges Moraine. Located thirty minutes from both Pearson Airport and the town of Newmarket, and about an hour’s drive from downtown Toronto, Nobleton still has a small-town feel, though its population continues to grow with new housing developments.
The congregation was begun in 1958 and became completely self-supporting in 1983. Only five years later, a major building addition was undertaken, giving St. Paul’s a fully accessible and functional campus near the edge of town on the main east-west thoroughfare. This church family is home to people young and old, and its online presence reaches well beyond the community.
St. Paul’s exists to encourage people to connect with God, grow in Christ, and serve in community. This mission-purpose statement extends to all the ministries of the congregation, including the music ministry.
