The Rev. Hugo Unruh, former candidate for ministry for Westminster United Church, is our guest preacher today.  This is one of the five additional Sundays per year that Rev. Sherri McConnell does not have worship responsibilities, as per Westminster UC’s terms of appointment for ministry.


The Congregation of Westminster United Church will hold its Annual General Meeting on Sunday March 5th, 2017 during the Worship Service. The Worship Service will start in its normal fashion, however, the AGM will take the place of the Sermon.

Congratulations & felicitations …

Thanks Ken!

Today we bid farewell to Ken DeLisle, who has been serving as our Gap minister through the fall. We’re grateful to Ken for his ministry with us, and wish him all the best in his retirement. After the service today, the Westminster family is invited to the Fellowship Hall to enjoy some treats as we wish Ken “bon voyage.”


We extend our condolences to Charles Huband and family on the recent passing of his brother, Rolph Huband. The memorial service was held this past Friday in Oakville, Ontario.

Exploring the Enneagram: Body, Heart & Mind

Saturday, September 17, 9:30 – 4:30 & Sunday, September 18, 1:30 – 4:30 at Westminster Church. The Enneagram is a map of the human psyche. Many people have looked to the Enneagram for a better understanding of who they are by identifying with a particular type. The Enneagram is often used in organizational team building as a tool to better understand our habits, motivations and strengths within the three centres of awareness; body, heart and head. Facilitators: Jane Casey with Brian McLeod. Bring your own lunch or eat nearby. Cost is $60 early bird rate or $75 after Sept. 7. To register contact germainenorberg@gmail.com. (On a personal note, Rev. Heather Lea recommended the Enneagram workshop to the congregation; also I took it many years ago and it is excellent — Cindy Rose Reimann.)
