Welcome To Our Church
Our Mission, as 
West River United Church

is to worship God and celebrate our faith

by creating a Christian community
and to work and grow together

in love, fellowship and service,
as we search for a more abundant life in Christ.

Join us online for our Palm/Passion Service - April 5th at  10:00 a.m. 

West River United Church
Response to COVID-19 Update
April 2, 2020

Hello to everyone.

Our health and government authorities have made it very clear that we do not meet during this pandemic. We also follow the direction of Fundy St. Lawrence Dawning Waters Regional Council 15 who urges all congregations to follow the official recommendations. 

Adhering to those will ensure that we do our part to keep you, our congregation, and our staff safe.

 At this point, the Church and the church office will continue to be closed and all groups and activities in the building are cancelled until the end of April and we will reassess at that time. 
We thank you all for supporting this decision.

Our worship services will continue to be offered online on Facebook. We will have a Palm & Passion Service on April 5th, a Good Friday Service on April 10th and an Easter Sunday Service on April 12th. 
The services will be posted at 10 am those days.
Materials related to the worship will continue to be sent out via email.

Another way in which we are responding to the COVID-19 situation is to consider alternate methods for us to continue to financially support our community of faith at West River United Church. Although our church and related activities will be closed until at least  April 30th, our important work continues within WRUC and beyond into the wider community. Two options right now are Interact E-Transfer and Canada Post (Snail) Mail for those who are not signed up for PAR, or who wish to donate in addition to your monthly PAR givings. The instructions can be found by clicking this link Giving options during COVID-19

 If you need to reach the office you can call 902-566-4052 and leave a message or follow the instructions on the voice mail. Please be assured that we are still working from home and available to you by phone, text, and email.

We have volunteers that are willing to assist you.

If you are aware of someone from our church family that does not have access to technology, please feel free to take a moment to reach out to them to keep them informed and make them feel connected.
 Please keep our faith community, our country and our world in your prayers.

Yours in Christ, 

Your West River United Staff and Church Council
