A Note from Our Minister, Kevin Derry 
Welcome to the website of Northminster United Church, Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.  We thank you for taking the time to look at our site and learn a bit more about our faith community.

Our accessible building is located at 300 Sunset Boulevard (between Chemong & Barnardo) and we meet currently every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. for worship. Please watch the website for any changes in service time. For Sunday services you may enter through the doors facing Sunset Boulevard or the red doors facing the back parking lot.   There is an accessible lift entrance also facing the back parking lot that is clearly marked. During the week, please use the red doors facing the parking lot to enter the building.  We have office hours from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.  The office is closed for all statutory holidays.

In the ever-changing COVID-19, RSV and influenza environment that we find ourselves, we have taken measures to ensure, to the best of our ability, everyone's safety.  We strongly recommend being fully vaccinated and offer a mask friendly environment.  We practice social distancing as folks are comfortable.  There is hand sanitizer conveniently located at the entrances and throughout the building.  We also ask that if you are feeling unwell, please take time at home until your symptions have subsided.  It is so important to work together to protect the health of those most vulnerable to illness to our communities.  These protocols could change based on recommendations from our local Health Unit.  Please check this website regularly for any changes in our health and safely protocols.

Our Sunday School programme is up and running, however, as always, there are colouring materials and puzzles available in the narthex (back of the church) for the young and young at heart.  There is Nursery care available for infants and toddlers.  We are also gathering for fellowship time in Upper Wright Hall following worship.
 
We are a welcoming, theologically progressive community of faith trying to live and love faithfully in complex and trying times.  We are an Affirming congregation in the United Church of Canada. We share our faith stories from the New and Old Testaments of the Bible, as well as other faith writings and stories that help us navigate the presence of the Holy in the context of this time and place.  We have resumed smaller group gatherings such as studies and grief groups, so please stay tuned for more information as they occur sporadically throughout the year. 

You may check out some of our recent services through the video link at the top of the website.  Barring technical issues, each Sunday service is available to view by Monday at noon most weeks.  

As we enter the Spring Season, we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus and the Empty Tomb.  In late Spring we honour Pentecost (the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Christian Church).  We welcome the new life bursting forth around us both in the wonder of Creation and the faith expression of Northminster United Church.  We revel in the gift of the Holy Spirit as its moves within, amen, and around us.

We have been living in a construction zone since last December as we prepare to welcome Trent Child Care (TCC).  The basement of the building is undergoing a massive renovation and is closed to the public.  We all cannot wait to welcome TCC into our building in the coming months.
 
Weekly coffee hour will resume on Tuesday, May 7th, at 10:00 a.m. in Upper Wright Hall and continue until the end of June.  

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or, better yet, come and join us for a service on a Sunday morning.  We would love to meet you!
 
Once again, my thanks for sharing your time with us and I hope you can join us for worship soon.  If you have any further questions, please use the contact information provided and reach out to us.
Take care ,
Kevin
