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".
Rev. JoŽlle Leduc started with us on September 1, 2020 and September 13,
2020 she started offering an online worship service at 1:00 pm, followed
by zoom fellowship, in addition to the regular 10:30 am Sunday in person
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 we could no longer hold in person worship and had 10:30 am
Sunday worship online.
During the summer period, July 4 -
September 5, 2021, we took part in joint
services with other West-Island churches. Also, in
months that have five Sundays, the 5th Sunday is a special joint worship
service with neighbouring West-Island United churches.
We currently have an on-site, in person
Sunday worship service starting at 10:30 am, which is simulcast online
preceded by zoom fellowship
10:00 - 10:30 am. The worship service also includes a special time for
children and youth, the WoW Zone (Worship our Way for children and
Effective September 12, 2021 the
attendance limit for on-site worship is 80 people, as we need to respect
restrictions. A distance of at least 1 metre must be
maintained between people if they are not talking or if they are talking
quietly, and of 2 metres if they are talking or singing, even when they
stay in their seat and do not move about, unless they are from the same
private home or the equivalent. People will need to maintain social
distancing, wear a procedure mask (supplied if needed), and wash hands.
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.
