Welcome and thank you for visiting Mount Albert United Church online! We are currently holding in-person services of worship on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 10:30 am. Rev. Ball offers mini-services ('meditations'), in print and video format, on all other Sundays. Those are posted on the Calendar and Worship page of this website. We encourage everyone to please have both of their COVID-vaccinations before attending!
Acknowledgement of the Land
Weddings & Rentals
We gather on the traditional territories of many Indigenous nations who have called, and continue to call, this area home. We acknowledge the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinabewaki Peoples who cared for, and lived in harmony with, this land long before our ancestors arrived from Europe. We confess that our ancestors were often neither fair nor ethical in their dealings with the Indigenous Peoples of this land. We pray that we may better learn to walk a path of reconciliation; we pray that we may better learn to live in harmony with the land in, and around, Mt. Albert (Rev. Sep 4/21).
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
September 1, 2021
Hello, and welcome to what the English poet, John Keats, famously called the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness! In Ontario, of course, the fall is also the most colourful of all seasons and a veritable delight for the senses.
Well, after months (and months, and months!) of being closed because of the COVID pandemic, we are now really looking forward to opening once again for Sunday services of worship, and other events! However, please note that, when we gather, we’ll have to do so with all of the same public health protocols in place that were in place last year: we’ll have to pre-screen people before they enter the church and make sure that they’re in compliance with entrance requirements; we’ll have to record names for contact tracing; we’ll have to ensure that everyone is wearing a mask and remains socially distant from those who are not in their “bubble.”
What’s more, because of all that work, the Leadership Team has decided to only hold in-person services on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month – at least until we see how things develop. I’ll continue to write, and record, meditations (or mini-services) for all the Sundays when we’re not meeting in person. They're available in print and video format, and are posted on the ‘Calendar and Worship’ page of this website.
I pray that you, and your family, are keeping safe through these days; I pray that the Ontario Reopening Plan will proceed smoothly so that we can start to get back to normal as soon, and as safely, as possible!
God bless, Warren
