NEW: Outdoor worship services

Early in August 2021 our elders approved a plan to add an additional Sunday worship service starting on September 19, 2021.

The 10:01am (indoor) service will continue with the live-stream and with the limited in-person gathering.

The new service will be an additional 40-minute family-friendly outdoor service on Sunday afternoons at 3:30pm in the front parking lot and lawn. There will also be Sunday School.

This will begin on September 19th, so mark your calendars and plan to bring your own lawn chairs! (If you don’t have a chair, we’ll have some on hand.) Rain or shine.

More information will be coming in September. The services will be led by Pastor Ruttan and Music Director Jenn Harris. Only the 10:01am service will be live-streamed.

Why are we doing this? We anticipated that in the autumn we would be able to increase our in-door capacity for the sanctuary. With the Delta variant, and with vaccination numbers being lower than anticipated, we may not be able to increase indoor capacity based on current government restrictions. We’re simply unsure. In light of this uncertainty, we are trying this new idea to increase the number of people who can gather (safely) to connect and to worship at Westminster.

As with everything in this pandemic, many things are continually changing. At present, the addition of these outdoors services is a part of our plan, assuming that they will continue to be permitted. As indicated, we will provide more fulsome information in September.

We are excited about this opportunity to experience worship and fellowship, young and old together!

As always, we know that God is on the throne and continue to honour him and fix our eyes on Jesus who is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)!
