Sunday Service – Feb. 5, 2023

Joy. How do we find it when we don’t feel it? In the midst of their own sadness because of his imminent departure, Jesus told his disciples that their “hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” Likewise, we wonder how we can be joyful when we are surrounded by so much hardship and pain. This is our theme on Sunday as we explore John 16:4-24. How can we find joy when we don’t feel it? We will also learn a new memory verse (1 John 4:4). There will be Sunday School ministry (now divided into three age groups) and nursery care. We will sing and pray together, have fellowship, and be fix our eyes on the only One who is able to sustain and guide us! The service is at 10:01 am in-person and online via YouTube.

Sunday Service – May 7, 2023

It’s the most famous of the most famous psalms. People request it at funerals and underline it in their Bibles. They memorize it and plaque it for their walls. Many non-Christians can even recite the first few lines. “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” On Sunday Pastor Ruttan will take us into this eternally comforting passage and explore what it might say to us today. If you missed it last week, click here for a short video introduction to this series on the Psalms. During the service we will honour God through biblical teaching, prayer, music, Sunday School, nursery care, and fellowship with one another. The service begins at 10:01am both in person and online via YouTube.

Sunday Service – July 9, 2023

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Sunday, July 9th we will have a 40-minute inter-generational service. We will give thanks for Vacation Bible Camp, show a video review of the week, re-share some fun content from the camp, and do some singing! This is an ‘all together’ service so there will be no Sunday School. (But there will be nursery care.) Let’s celebrate God in an uplifting and joyful way together. This is a great service to invite a friend or family member who is unsure about church. It will be casual and joyful. The service begins at 10:01am both in person and online via YouTube.

Sunday Service – Sept.3, 2023

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Sunday Pastor Ruttan returns to lead worship after his summer vacation. On September 10th he will begin a new series on 1st and 2nd Thessalonians. But before that begins he will teach on one of the shortest (and most beautiful) Psalms–131. There we are encouraged to calm and quiet our souls. In a world of noise, how do we do it? Even when we’re in a quiet setting, our minds can continue to buzz with activity. Psalm 131 helps us forward as we plan for autumn. There will be Sunday School, nursery care, coffee time and fellowship. The service is at 10:01am and will be in-person and live on YouTube.

Sunday Service – Sept.17, 2023

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

We praise and honour God together on Sunday, September 17th at 10:01am. We sing, pray, learn, have fellowship and grow. Pastor Ruttan will continue our new teaching series on 1st and 2nd Thessalonians called "The beginning is nigh." Next we look at being God-pleasers instead of people-pleasers. There will be Sunday School, nursery care, and fellowship. After the service, you can also check out some books that remain from last Sunday's book sale.

Sunday Service – January 14, 2024

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Sunday we will praise God! It’s what we were made to do. We will sing and pray, learn from scripture, and support one another as the body of Christ. There will be Sunday school, nursery care, and fellowship time. As a part of the service we will hear some faith statements by people who are becoming professing members of the congregation. Pastor Ruttan will also give some teaching about ‘spiritual gifts 101.’ Every Christian has at least one “spiritual gift” that God has given them to use for his purposes in the world. What are they and how do you know? Come Holy Spirit! Let’s honour the Lord together. The service is at 10:01am.

Youth Group – New Year Launch Pizza Party

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Friday January 19th at 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m, we invite Youth and their families (supervision for children under grade 5 will be available) for a New Year Launch party at the church complete with DJing, delicious pizza and refreshments.

Please RSVP to (so we can order enough pizza!) and don’t forget, William has a special treat for all the youth to redeem!

Sunday Service – Feb.11, 2024

Westminster 170 Steel Street, Barrie, Ontario, Canada

On Sunday we gather in-person for 10:01am to worship and praise the Triune God. We begin a new teaching series on the book of Esther, the young Jewish woman who ascended to the throne in times that were dangerous, politically and personally. Did you realize that it's the only book of the Bible in which God is not specifically named? There's no mention of miracles or Jerusalem. And yes, it is filled with moral ambiguities. A major theme will be discerning the hand of God when it's hard to see. We will worship, pray, and praise. Thoughtful and loving volunteers will lead Sunday School, provide nursery care, and facilitate fellowship time after the service. Come, Lord! Let’s honour the Lord together. The service is at 10:01am.
