Our in-person Worship services have been suspended since March 22, 2020 due to the Covid-19 Epidemic.
However, our minister Rev. Brian McIntosh, and our office Manager Halyna Parypa have continued to work from their offices at Bloordale United Church, and to be available by telephone at (416) 621-1710 during the work week. Please note that Brian’s day off is Monday, as previously, and Halyna is on duty at the office daily Monday to Friday mornings.
After the suspension of our in-person worship, Brian has been preparing written worship materials every week . These include church news, prayers, liturgy, hymns and sermon and are sent out weekly, by e-mail, to our congregation, usually on Friday afternoon. If you would like to be added to our e-mail recipient list please call Halyna at the telephone number shown above.
More recently Brian has also been making video recordings of his weekly sermon, with the help of his wife Debbie. These are posted on Vimeo, and may be accessed each week using a “private” URL, which is sent out in our email of written worship materials mentioned above. You may view the sermon video and forward the URL link to friends and neighbours. However, as a “private” video it is not available to the general public by searching Vimeo’s database of videos.
We had recently been planning to resume in-person worship in the Advent season, starting with the First Sunday of Advent on November 29, 2020. In that scenario, the plan is to make a video recording of the in-person worship service and then send the Vimeo link and written materials out subsequently, by email. However, in view of the recent worsening of the Covid-19 situation the decision to resume in-person worship On November 29 is presently under review.
We will post updates about this decision on this website.
