Worship Services

We are a faith-community of everyday people, exploring, experiencing and sharing God's love within the vibrant traditions of The United Church of Canada. We are led by our Minister, Rev. JoŽlle Leduc, and an active Congregation, the "Ministers of Action".

Recent History
Rev. JoŽlle Leduc started with us on September 1, 2020. On September 13, 2020 she started offering an online Sunday worship service at 1:00 pm, followed by zoom fellowship, in addition to the regular 10:30 am in person Sunday worship, which was open to a limited number of people due to COVID-19 restrictions. When the Government of Quebec tightened the restrictions even more the beginning of February 2021, we could no longer hold in person worship and had 10:30 am Sunday worship online. We resumed in person worship, respecting the restrictions, the end of March 2021, and simultaneously broadcast this worship service live on zoom.

During the summer period, July 4 - September 5, 2021, we took part in joint online worship services with other West-Island churches.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the church was closed from January 2 until February 6, 2022. Live, on-site, in person worship services resumed February 13, 2022, while respecting the latest restrictions. These services were broadcast Live Online on zoom starting at 10:30 am, followed by fellowship.

We welcomed Gordon Simms as our new Music Director on November 20, 2022. We are looking forward to his leadership and are eager to find out what surprises he has for us.

Worship Activities from July 3 through September 4, 2022
During the summer period the West Island and Riverside United Churches cluster held joint worship services at different locations, as shown in the schedule here. We continued to have worship services at Ste-Genny's throughout July. On July 17 we hosted the cluster at Ste-Genny's. During August and Labour day Sunday we joined the cluster for worship, either in person at the designated church, or online. Details about the cluster worship services, including the link for online worship, are available here. We also live-streamed these cluster services in the Sanctuary at Ste-Genny's.

Current Worship Activities
From September 11, 2022 on we are back worshiping at Ste-Genny's. On November 20, 2022 we welcomed Gordon Simms as our new Music Director. Our Sunday Worship Service starts at 10:30 am. The service is broadcast Live Online on zoom, and the zoom session is followed by fellowship. The Worship Service also includes a special time for children and youth, the WoW Zone (Worship our Way for children and youth). At the front of the Sanctuary, we have a special VIP Family Spot for children, see here.

The Live Online Worship Services are recorded and links to these recordings are available on our Online Worship Services page.

Our pulpit is inscribed with the letters VDMA. Have you noticed that, and have you wondered what that means? It is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase: Verbum domini manet in aeternum, which means: The word of the Lord remains forever.
