Upcoming Events

Updates and Invitations from Midhurst United Church

We are happy to announce that worship services are now offered both in-person* and simultaneously on ZOOM with an opportunity to visit with others following the service in either format. If you miss ‘being with’ others you are welcome to join worship and conversation on Sunday mornings. Go to midhurstunitedchurch.ca to get the information to join online. We have a number of events in December which you may wish to join either in-person or online:

  • Monday, December 6, 2:00 pm – Write for Rights – Amnesty International letter writing campaign. Join others in writing advocacy and support letters for individuals involved in human rights issues. All information and supplies will be provided. (in-person only)
  • Sunday, December 12, 10:30 am – Worship Service of Christmas music and carols. (in-person and online)
  • Sunday, December 12, 2:00 pm -. Rev. Dr. Judith Visser has begun as the new worship and spiritual leader at Midhurst United Church. At a special service on December 12, Midhurst United Church officially covenants with Judith for her work in the Midhurst community. All are welcome to this celebration. (in-person and online)
  • Monday, December 20, 7:00 pm – Light in the Shadows – Judith will be leading this opportunity for quiet meditation and reflection, which is provided for anyone in the community who is finding Christmas difficult this year. (in-person only)
  • Friday, December 24, 4:30 pm – Join others in your community for this Christmas Eve Service to celebrate the traditional meaning of Christmas. This service is somewhat informal and appropriate for families of all ages. You do not need to be part of this – or any – church to participate. (in-person and on-line)
  • Friday, December 24, 11:00 pm – This Christmas Eve Service is also an opportunity to consider and celebrate the traditional meaning of Christmas. The service is more adult focussed. (in-person and online)

*Note: all in-person events at the church require proof of vaccination (some exceptions apply.) Please arrive early to allow time for this process. Masks are required for all in-person events and in-person worship also includes congregational singing. Many of the events are offered on-line simultaneously through ZOOM. Go to our website, midhurstunitedchurch.ca or call the church at 705 722-6331 for further information on any of these events. 

We have recently said good-bye to Terry Therien, our church musician.    Now we are looking to hire a new music director to play for Sunday morning worship and lead the choir. Details of this position are posted on our website and we welcome applications from local musicians.

December is a busy month – come share some quiet pauses with neighbours and friends. Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.
