From the Westminster Reopening Task Group, October 2020

Westminster had tentatively planned to reopen for in-person Worship on October 4th. However, in view of the Orange Alert conditions commencing September 28 for the Winnipeg Region, and in the interest of the health and safety of our congregation and staff, the decision was made by the Board of Westminster to remain closed for in-person worship until such time as it is deemed safe to do so. The church building will also remain closed to the public for now (with exceptions to this made by the Board for the Westminster Child Care Centre and Bell Tower Community Café).

Your Board members and the Reopening Task Group will continue to monitor the evolving situation closely while we continue with our excellent pre-recorded virtual services. Many thanks to all who have worked hard to prepare our virtual worship, and to the committee for their thoughtful work in challenging times.

COViD 19 plan

Effective Saturday March 21, 2020 Westminster United Church is suspending worship services and all programming, and the building will be closed until further notice. The board of Westminster will meet in early April to re-assess this plan, and determine next steps.

Westminster’s voice mail and email will be monitored regularly. We plan to be in regular communication via congregational email, facebook and our website. We hope to offer worship and reflection resources via technology, and are working on that.

Organisations and community groups that meet in the church building are being notified. Please contact your community group or organization directly for further information.
