Church is open for worship services.

It is be good to see people physically present despite restrictions. Reminder: if you would like to attend you need to indicate your intent by Thursday night with David and Michelle Adams  at  dmadams3840@gmail.com  or  905 986 4817 This is to keep within health guidelines and for seating arrangement. Remember your mask and a cushion, if needed, as cushions are not in the pews.

ZOOM gatherings will still take place each Sunday with a shortened worship service and chat time.

A Social Time is also enjoyed on Wednesday evenings via Zoom.

We thus keep in touch with our congregation.

Blessings.
