 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 and we meet every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship and Sunday School.  In this COVID-19 environment that we continue to find ourselves, we have taken measures to ensure to the best of our ability, everyone's safety.  We are slowly lifting gathering limits of people in our Sanctuary and ask that you pre-register if possible, by either clicking on the Eventbrite link at the top of the website or contacting the office for assistance [705-748-4881 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.]. We practice social distancing, regular facility cleaning and sanitizing, and require folks to wear a mask unless they are exempt for medical reasons or are aged 2 and under. There is hand sanitizer conveniently located at the entrances and throughout the building.  Proof of double vaccination and identification are required to enter our building for any reason unless you are medically or age exempt [proof of exemption required].

Our Sunday School program has resumed.  We are also gathering for coffee in our Upper Wright Hall.  Through Easter Sunday, we will gather for coffee before worship, between 9:30 a.m. and 9:55 a.m.  Beginning the first Sunday after Easter, we will gather after service in the Upper Wright Hall for coffee and fellowship.

We are a welcoming, theologically progressive community of faith trying to live and love faithfully in complex and trying times.  We have completed the application process to become an Affirming congregation in the United Church of Canada and just recently received our acceptance.  We will have a service celebrating our acceptance in the Fall of this year.  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.

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.  New services are uploaded and available for viewing by Monday noon most weeks.  There is also an opportunity for reflection and prayer Thursday mornings.  The video goes up by noon on Thursdays.

I am wishing everyone a safe and reflective Lent and Easter Season, this Spring.

Once again, my thanks for sharing your time with us and I hope you can join us for worship someday soon.  If you have any further questions, please use the contact information provided and reach out to us.

Take care and be safe,
