as we are led in worship
by Rev. Bruce Lungren.


We are led in worship each Sunday by either our  supervising minister, Rev.Dr. Éloi Gunn, members of our congregation or guest worship leaders. Rev.Gunn is also the Chief Instructor and Deputy Commander of the Canadian Forces Chaplain School and Centre in Borden, Ontario. In case of need, he can be reached by leaving a message at the church office  at 418-692-2640 or call him directly at 581-995-2640. 

Chalmers-Wesley choir practises from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays in preparation for our weekly Sunday anthem and hymns. All are welcome. 

To celebrate the Christmas Season, a Potluck Lunch will be held following the worship service on Sunday, Dec. 9. Start planning now about what you might bring to the communal table, and let a member of the Social Committee (Susa Bernard or Danielle Kaymore) know. See the notice board in the kitchen. 

Power Yoga classes with Susa take place in the lower hall every second Saturday morning from 10 to 11 a.m. The next class will be held on December 8. For more details, contact Susa at [email protected]  

PLEASE NOTE: Now that winter weather is here, to protect our floors from salt and slush, please bring indoor footwear to put on after you remove your boots at the entrance to the lower hall. Thank you.
