Message from Patrick – If you feel the need to talk, to vent, to laugh, to hear another’s voice, please know that the phone and the email at the church is constantly being checked so if you need to speak to me, please call. If you get the answering machine, leave your name and number and I will call you back. We are in this together and we will get through this together, because that is what we do here at Windsor Park United Church.
If You Are Inside The Church Building – If for any reason you enter the church building you will find a log book and hand sanitizer. Please use the hand sanitizer, sign the log book, and record what areas of the building you are in (no matter how short your stay!). It is mandatory that you also wear a mask. This is to aid in keeping the building clean, sanitized, and safe.
