-and thank you for visiting Mount Albert United Church online!
Services of Worship
Weddings & Rentals
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the public health restrictions that have been in place, we have been closed for in-person services of worship since last November. However, we have been posting a number of weekly worship resources on the 'Calendar & Worship' page of this website - check them out! Given recent developments, the Leadership Team is having an electronic meeting on June 22/21 to discuss plans for re-opening - stay tuned!
Please also realize that our expenses continue! If you're not on P.A.R. ("pre-authorized remittance"), please contact Gord Thompson, or a member of the Finance Committee, to join. For that matter, a cheque in the mail (no cash, please!), or a cheque in the mail box by the main doors, or a cheque given to a member of the Leadership Team, or a member of the Finance Cmt., for delivery to the church, also works!
We have a beautiful traditional sanctuary and modern kitchen facilities. Our space works well for weddings, classes, yoga, karate or youth groups.
At present, unfortunately, we are not able to rent our space, due to COVID restrictions. When this changes, please contact the Church office for charges and details.
Words from Warren
While yet a youngster, I remember going into a ‘House of Mirrors’ at a circus. That crazy place featured room after room of concave and convex mirrors, where the images reflected were misshapen. Oh, my, how I became frightened, and confused, after looking at all those images that were distorted! I remember wondering, who the heck am I?
Images, and self-images, can play quite some mind-games with us, can’t they? Perhaps never more so than in this world of the COVID pandemic where so much has been turned upside-down and inside-out! Surely, it’s become only too easy to forget not only who we are, but also whose we are.
Well, let me assure you, COVID-19 notwithstanding, we are all children of God! As such, we are all part of something that’s very much larger than we can ever see. Let’s hang on to that conviction through these next months of the world reopening, that we’ll always remember not only who we are, but also what we’re called to do – live with love and hope!
I pray that you, and your loved ones, are kept safe; I pray that vaccines are distributed throughout the world such that all may be kept safe!
