Pine Hill Divinity Hall

Mission Statement

Pine Hill Divinity Hall’s Mission is to build up the body of Christ by supporting the education of people with vocations in ministry and thereby fostering the proclamation of the Gospel.


The Methodists, the Presbyterians and for a short while, the Congregationalists provided theological education in Canada from the early 19th century. After Church Union, the General Council established and designated Pine Hill Divinity Hall as a United Church of Canada theological school. Pine Hill was one of the founding parties of Atlantic School of Theology in 1971 and continues to play an active role in the governance of the university. Pine Hill maintains an office at AST and supports United Church of Canada students as they pursue their studies.


Pine Hill Divinity Hall supports United Church of Canada members pursuing study and training for ministry through its endowment fund by:

  • Financially assisting members of The United Church of Canada preparing for ordered ministry at Atlantic School of Theology.
  • Supporting Atlantic School of Theology in offering high caliber theological education that meets the standards required by The United Church of Canada.
  • Continuing to provide support as a Founding Party of the Atlantic School of Theology.
  • Supporting public education events identified by Atlantic School of Theology.
  • Building and nurturing relationships with members of the United Church of Canada within all UCC Regions students reside to ensure a common vision.
  • Being responsible stewards of Pine Hill assets.
