Workplace safety

You are invited to a free lecture on Workplace Safety led by the Winnipeg Police Service on Sunday, June 3 at 12:30 pm. This will be of interest to anyone who has an interest in workplace safety and dealing with difficult situations in the church, whether you are paid staff or a volunteer. Please register by calling the Westminster Church office at 204-784-1330 or email at info@westminsterchurch.org. A light lunch will be served. There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required.

News from the Property Committee

The Property Committee has several major projects underway (from Brandon Johnston, Property Chair)

  • The solar panel project is moving forward. Our structural engineers and the Blue Sky engineers are currently making drawings. Once both are complete they can compare and ensure the building is suitable for the solar panels. Heritage will then be more involved at this point and their approval is required to proceed. The application has been made to Manitoba Hydro and we expect to hear back from them in the next week or so.
  • Quotes are currently being received for the replacement of the front steps. This will not be a quick or simple repair. A grant application is being made to community places to cover some of the project cost.
Belated birthday wishes to Margaret Harrison on celebrating her 90th birthday this past week.

We’re doing a selfie today!

A request has gone out for ‘congregational selfies’ to include in the Closing Worship Service at the Conference of MB and NWO Annual Meeting (taking place on Sunday May 27/18 -see above announcement). Westminster is joining in on the fun! TODAY immediately following the postlude at the end of the service, we hope as many of us as possible will be gather at the front of the sanctuary to have our picture taken. Hope you can be there!

This week we hold in our thoughts and prayers, United Church in Meadowood.

This week we hold in our thoughts and prayers, Trinity United Church.
