CHECK OUT the regular Sunday Announcements for all the latest news.
Rev. Heidi is on study leave this week and our alternate minister became ill, so we are not able to produce your normal online worship service, nor host your weekly Zoom fellowship meeting. We’ll be back on our usual schedule and format next week, January 24. However, with the music already prepared, our dear Music Director, Tim Olfert, has offered a medley of his Gathering and Postlude music for your Sunday morning. It will go live at 10:00am:
NEWS FROM THE CHURCH COUNCIL & SAFETY COMMITTEE
November 20, 2020: You will probably have heard the news, that in-person religious gatherings and worship services are suspended under Provincial Health order. Religious services can continue using remote or virtual attendance options. We continue to adjust to the changing conditions of COVID-19 and, as one council member wisely said: “Hope is a renewable resource. If you run out of it at the end of the day, you get to start over in the morning.” So, stay tuned for more news!

Welcome to the Gordon United Church webpage! Gordon United, like many churches, feels like family for many people who attend. The bigger the family the better, as all are our sisters and brothers in Christ. While our ability to attend in person is limited during the COVID19 pandemic, we remain committed to one another and to our ministry. Our goal is to be both a welcoming congregation for those who choose to become involved but also an active part of the community beyond the church building.
This is a group of people who really appreciate each other and would be glad to have you become a part of the family. All ages, abilities, or backgrounds are invited to become involved in the life of this Christian community. A special welcome is extended to our LGBTQ2S+ friends.
You do not need to be a regular church attender, or even a Christian to feel welcome as part of Gordon United.
Bringing the generations together is important to the congregation.
While these programs have been suspended during the pandemic, updates and activities are posted on both the Gordon United Church and Messy Church Westshore Facebook pages. Home worship packs are also distributed at special times of the year.
Worship is a mixture of the traditional and the contemporary, preaching is Biblical and related to everyday life. Members of the congregation take an active part in leading worship, whether online or in person.
Gordon United strives to make a difference by deepening and acting on our faith; responding to God’s ancient call to live justly and peaceably. Join us any time, as often as you like. We hope that you will consider making Gordon United your church home.
We try to make everyone feel welcomed and “at home”. Please talk to us if you have ideas on ways for improvements so that we can be the best that we can possibly be for our community within the Church and outside of our walls.
There are opportunities to get to know one another, to learn together, and to make a difference in the community and in the world. The United Church of Canada is a “big-tent” denomination, with lots of variety in how people follow Jesus and what they believe. This is a place where asking questions is not just allowed, but encouraged!
All who wish to explore what it means to follow Jesus are welcome in this place. So please come and join us exactly as you are — you are welcome in your denim, your joggers or your flounces and frills. I look forward to connecting with you.
