Summer update: building closure and re-opening plans

Effective May, 2020 the board of Westminster United Church decided the building of Westminster will continue to be closed to public and staff until further notice. All staff will continue to work from home (with the exception of caretaking and daycare). Mail, church voicemail and email will continue to be monitored regularly. A Start Up Task Group has been established by the Board to develop the criteria and action plan for the re-opening of the building and the resuming of regular activities, when the time comes. This group will likely begin its work in August.

If you have questions, concerns, or need anything please call the church at 204-784-1330 and leave a voicemail or send an email.

COViD-19 Update

Effective April 1, 2020, the building of Westminster United Church is fully shut down for two weeks, due to the Province of Manitoba Health Order to close all non-essential businesses, including non-profits, to slow the spread of COViD-19. Email and voicemail will be checked regularly, and the actual mail will be checked everyday. Staff will work from home. If you have questions, concerns or need anything, please call the church at 204-784-1330 and leave a voicemail, or send an email. Someone will get back to you — we promise!

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.
