In-person activities cancelled at Edith Rankin Memorial United Church

ALL in-person worship services and gatherings are cancelled indefinitely in order to help mitigate the spread of the covid-19 virus. We will re-assess at the end of April and post an update. Worship Services in our “virtual worship space” will be offered on Sunday mornings at 10 am, including small breakout groups for check-in and conversation. A recording of parts of the service will be posted here each week.
