North Mountain United Tapestry Cultural & Heritage Society is a multifaceted community project. In 2013 community concerns regarding the future of a historic church building (1860) in Harbourville, Nova Scotia, inspired a small group of volunteers to create and present a proposal to the United Church of Canada. The proposal was simple. The group would form a heritage and cultural society which would maintain the church building and offer it to the community as a welcoming meeting place. In return the United Church of Canada would allow the building to be identified as the home of the North Mountain United Tapestry. The proposal was accepted and ” United Tapestry” was born.
The society celebrates and promotes local culture, commerce and environmental stewardship within the surrounding North Mountain communities. Through adaptive reuse, the historic church has once again become a vibrant community meeting place envisioned within the original proposal . The four United Church of Canada services (including the beloved community led Christmas Eve service) which are held each year are now part of an inclusive schedule of events which include a farmers’ market, a concert series, environmental, health and craft workshops, plus artisan’s galleries. United Tapestry supports a community that honours its heritage and culture and strives for economic self-reliance and social responsibility.
To host a welcoming space in our community that celebrates and enhances our local culture, economy and quality of life.
