Sunday Worship at Westminster, March 22/20

With our building closed and worship services suspended until further notice, we are working on getting online worship services organized. In the meanwhile, head over to https://www.united-church.ca/covid-19  (and click on ‘worship online during COViD-19’).  There you will find links to United Churches across Canada that live-stream their worship services, as well as a link to worship services with the Moderator of the United Church, the Rev. Richard Bott.

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.
