Update: September 28, 2020
The Reopening Committee has been carefully monitoring the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases within the Province of Manitoba and has decided that in-person worship will be postponed until further notice. We will continue with the current format of delivering the on-line Worship Service to you each Sunday morning. We will keep you informed as soon as we know when we will resume the in-person (limited capacity) services. In the meantime, please remember to check on your fellow Windsor Park United Church community members, with a phone call or quick email.
*Mask and sign-in protocols remain in effect for those entering the building.
Update: September 1, 2020
The Reopening Committee, in consultation with the Worship Council, is looking at a return to worship, in person (limited attendance) for October 4 and October 18, 2020. All services will continue to be online as well. More details will follow. If you have ideas, comments or concerns please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please keep in mind, that should the Provincial Health Minister declare another total shut down, these in person services will not occur.
Update: August 17, 2020
Windsor Park United Church has formed a Protocols/Reopening Committee in order to address the many protocols surrounding how and when WPUC will open. At this time, we are anticipating to open for worship mid-September, once all the supplies we need are in the building (masks, sanitize stations, posters and signage etc.). We can let you know that a few protocols will be in place effective immediately.
Masks are to be worn at all times while in the building;
There is a sign in sheet at the front entrance to monitor when people are in the building and where they have been. This helps Gina know where people have been for proper cleaning protocols.
We do know that when we reopen for worship, you will need to call in to reserve your seat(s). All seating for worship will be assigned in the pews and there will be no preferred or chosen seating, so that we might be able to ensure that we fall within the appropriate numbers allowed and continue to maintain physical distancing. On-line services will still be available.
No events will be held in the basement at this time until we can get the worship service and sanctuary in order.
Once we know the exact date for our first in person service we will let everyone know. In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, please contact email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this time.

I hope this finds everyone well and that you are all keeping safe while still be able to get out and enjoy what our beautiful province has to offer.
The executive met via ZOOM last Thursday evening (July 30) and covered a lot of items mainly about the return to a safe worship and meeting space. It was decided that a committee will need to be formed to gather the information and set the specific protocols into place as per the Provincial mandate and those the United Church of Canada. As of now, the church remains closed to our renters until these protocols are set up.
We want to ensure that our community is kept safe and that we follow all the guidelines and protocols set out by the province and the United Church of Canada. We will keep you updated of all new information as it becomes available.
We thank you for your continued patience and understanding during these times.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Gloria at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*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.
