The Executive Board met last week via ZOOM and we would like to provide you with an update as to what our return to the church may look like. At this time, we are finishing up with painting, cleaning and purging of cupboard items in the basement, so that we can make more storage space for ourselves and those that use our space as well. The church is still closed for any activities and we can continue to have worship services via You Tube. This will continue through the summer until September 6.
We are working hard to develop protocols for cleaning and a safe return to the building for our renters and worship services. We are looking at the protocols and directives from the provincial health minister and the United Church of Canada-Prairie to Pine Region. Once we have these ready we will share it with everyone involved. Right now, we are aiming to reopen in early September, providing everything stays as it is, but please note that this could change depending on the what happens in the province.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
In the meantime, thank you for patience and understanding during this renovation and then pandemic that we did not anticipate.

The Executive Board has met and is beginning to discuss a strategy to reopen including what that may look like and a tentative date. We are looking at September 1 for a reopen date, but that all depends on the Provincial Health minister and the Executive Board. There will also be many protocols and safety measures in place that everyone will need to follow. We have begun to plan this out and will keep everyone informed as we move forward.

The church building continues to be closed for access to all members of the church, unless you have business with the church itself to do there. Although, you may see staff vehicles there from time to time, they are not there to answer the door or to take items you are dropping off (West Broadway, offering etc.). You can drop off envelopes in the mailbox for offering or send by regular mail. If you need to reach out and speak to Patrick or Sue directly, the office phone (204-256-8792) is being monitored daily and both Sue and Patrick continue to work from home as much as possible.
Watch for updates regarding a return to worship as they become available from the United Church Office, provincial government directives and the executive board at Windsor Park United.
