Christmas Hampers

Your Outreach Council is planning to prepare and deliver Christmas Hampers again this year. We generally contact the Christmas Cheer Board in early November to obtain the names and contact information of individuals, couples, and families who have applied for a hamper. If you personally know of someone in need whom you feel might benefit from our support, please discuss this with Patrick Woodbeck (minister@windsorparkunitedchurch.com) or Gwen Polak (gpolak@mymts.net) by the beginning of November.

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

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. We are asking that you sign the log book, record what areas of the building you are in and please use the hand sanitizer. This is to aid in keeping the building clean, sanitized, and safe. Please be aware that masks are mandatory inside the building.
