Winfield United Church


Hi Everyone,
Please join us this Sunday morning at 10 am for our virtual service on ZOOM. You can join by clicking the button to the right (or below if you are on a mobile device).

This morning Joan will reflect on another Invention of Summer -- "MOSQUITOS"

Please join a little earlier if you want to say Good Morning to everyone. We'd like to start the service at 10 am at which point everyone will be muted. Please stay muted throughout the entire service unless you are asked to unmute yourself.
After the service you will have the chance to "visit" and talk to each other.

See you soon

A video recording of the service along with the reflection will be available the following week on the church website.
Following is a shortened Newsletter which will be included every Sunday instead of Fridays during the summer.

Thank you for your continued support of Winfield United and the United Church's Mission and Service Fund during this unprecedented time of pandemic. Our building may be closed but we strive to keep our Church "open", with our online gatherings and keeping in touch with one another through phone calls and physically distant visits. Your gifts animate our mission. Offerings can be sent to the church office by mail or e-transfer.

Thank-you letters from our bursary recipients

Dear Winfield United Church,
I feel so honoured to be receiving this bursary. Being a part of this Church has taught me how to be an amazing leader and cemented the idea of working with children in my brain. From being a part of Children's church to leading it has been an awesome part of my childhood and teenage years. As I start this next chapter in my life I will remember each and every face and all the stories I have to share. I can remember being in so many plays and singing all the songs. It was always my favourite part of the week to come to church and visit and be a part all activities. I also became a very confident public speaker because of the church. Speaking infront of everyone whether it was for a little play or just a reading with my grandma I became so comfortable speaking publicly. I am very thankful for all the people I have met and all the kids I have watched grow up over the years. There is always going to be a special place in my heart for Winfield United and everyone I have met because of it.
Thank you for all the experiences and connections!
