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.  For Sunday services you may enter through the doors facing Sunset Boulevard or the red doors facing the back parking lot.  There is an accessible lift entrance also facing the back parking lot that is clearly marked.  During the week, please use the red doors facing the parking lot to enter the building.  We have office hours from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.  The office is closed for all statutory holidays.

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 recommend being fully vaccinated and wearing a mask is optional.  We practice social distancing as folks are comfortable.  There is hand sanitizer conveniently located at the entrances and throughout the building.

Our Sunday School programme is finished for the summer, however there are colouring materials available in the narthex [back of the church].  We are also gathering for fellowship time in our Upper Wright Hall following worship.  We are looking forward to our summer outdoor service on Sunday, July 10th at 10:00 a.m. just behind the church.
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 have received our acceptance.  We will have a service celebrating our Affirm United designation on Sunday, October 2nd 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 some 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 at noon most weeks.  There is also an opportunity for reflection and prayer Thursday mornings.  The prayer video goes up by noon on Thursdays.

I am wishing everyone a safe and relaxing Autumn Season.

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

Take care and be safe,
