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 during this beautiful Spring season..

Our accessible building is located at 300 Sunset Boulevard (between Chemong & Barnardo) and we meet every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship,  Sunday School, and fellowship.  For Sunday services you may enter through the doors facing Sunset Boulevard or the red doors facing the back parking lot.  The east doors facing the laneway from Sunset Boulevard are also open Sunday mornings. 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.

Our Sunday School programme will conclude for the season on June 18th. There are also colouring materials and puzzles available in the narthex (back of the church) for the young and young at heart. We are also gathering for fellowship and refreshment time in Upper Wright Hall following worship.
We are a welcoming, theologically progressive community of faith trying to live and love faithfully in complex and trying times.  We are an Affirming congregation in the United Church of Canada. 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. 

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 by mid-morning Monday most weeks.  There is also an opportunity for reflection and prayer Thursday mornings.  The prayer video goes up on the video bar of the website by noon on those Thursdays.

The Spring and Summer seasons allow us time to revel in the beauty of Creation as well as hopefully find some time to relax and refresh.  Sunday Services at Northminster continue uninterrupted throughout the summer season at our usual 10:00 a.m. start time.

Choir rehearsals continue Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm here at the church.  Please come out and join an enthusiastic group of folks who love to sing and share their gift of music. The choir will go on summer hiatus towards the end of June.

In this continuing COVID-19 environment that we find ourselves, we have taken measurers to ensure, to the best of our ability, everyone's safety.  We strongly recommend being fully vaccinated and wearing a mask.  We practice social distancing as folks are comfortable.  There is hand sanitizer conveniently located at the entrances and throughout the building.  We also ask that if you are feeling unwell, please take time at home until your symptoms have subsided.  It is so important to work together to protect the health of those most vulnerable to illness in our communities.  These protocols could change based on recommendations from our local Health Unit.  Please check this website regularly for any changes in our COVID-19 protocols. We ask everyone to please remember these protocols also help curb the spread of other viruses like the flu and colds.

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, be safe, and show kindness to one another,
