The choir is an integral part of our regular Sunday services, singing anthems and leading the congregation in the pre-service hymn sing. The choir practices Wednesdays at 7:30 pm. It is the largest choir in the Victoria United Church Presbytery and is under the direction of Tim Olfert. All are welcome, and no experience is necessary.
Gordon United Church sponsors a variety of music concerts throughout the year. Please check our events page for details.
A special part of the service is set aside each Sunday for the Minister and the children to have some time together. Read a description of this service moment.
We also have special services several times a year that are particularly geared towards our younger members. There is space in the worship area for children to colour and look at books, and a “cry room” where children can make a little more noise and parents can still hear the service. We encourage parents to bring their children year round, and as regularly as possible.
Our Sunday Children’s Program runs roughly September through May for children from preschool to Grade 6. Older children and teens are welcome to participate as helpers. Our learning environment is multi-age, with a shared story, age-appropriate activities, games and theme exploration. We use the Spark Rotation Curriculum. We do our best to have two adults with the children at all times, and all volunteers are screened. We would welcome new people to help share the leadership of the Sunday program. Jennifer Burgin is our Sunday School coordinator.
