From the Minister

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 will be constantly checked and so if you need to speak to me, please call and if we do not answer leave your name and number and I will call you back. We are in this together and will we get through this together, because that is what we do here at Windsor Park United Church

SouthWinds Deadline – Friday, June 26, 2020

We are planning a SouthWinds for July and are in need of submissions. Since the format of the last SouthWinds was so popular, we are keeping to that theme. Since there has been little to no activity for the various church groups and councils, we invite stories of interesting experiences during this time of self-isolation and self-care. What are some of the uplifting experiences that you have had at this time? What are your summer plans? Are you planning a staycation? What activities are planned for kids? Are you a gardener and what have you planted for this season? Do you have a gardening story to share?

All you crafty types: please submit stories and pictures of your isolation creations. Who binge watched a TV series and wants to share their insights? How many books have you completed from you “to-be-read” stash?

Please send your submissions via email to office@windsorparkunitedchurch.com. The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 26, 2020.

Summer Worship

Summer worship services will be on-line on July 12 (Communion), July 26, August 9 (Communion), and August 23, 2020. Please watch your email for further information.
