DUE TO COVID-19, in-person services have been suspended and we are currently worshipping on-line only.
It can be scary entering a church for the first time but no need to worry, as we are a very friendly, diverse and welcoming group! As you plan a visit with us, we encourage you to watch one of our virtual services that are available on-line.
Here are some questions you may have when planning for your visit in person:
What can I expect during the service?
We start every service with announcements about upcoming events and other church news. We sing traditional hymns and modern worship songs, we pray together, we hear readings from the Bible and a sermon from our Minister. Bulletins are provided so that you can easily follow the order of service. If you need any assistance during the service, you can speak to one of our ushers who would be happy to help you.
How long is the service?
Approximately one hour.
What programs do you have for children?
Children are always welcome in our service. If you wish, we have a nursery for infants and toddlers and Sunday School programming for children aged three to twelve. Bible stories, lessons, crafts and celebrations such as birthdays are all part of the program. The nursery and Sunday School are staffed by experienced volunteers.
What if I’m late to the service?
Don’t worry, enter the church though the main entrance (opposite Ellerslie Ave.) which stay open throughout the service and find your way to a seat. For safety, side doors are locked after service has begun.
Will I have an opportunity to meet people from the church?
We welcome all visitors to join us for refreshments and a time of fellowship after every service to help us get to know one other. Many of our members have allergies and we are a church that is Nut Aware. If you are concerned about an allergy, please let us know and we would be glad to help you and offer safe alternatives.
What do I wear?
Come as you are. There is no dress code.
We look forward to welcoming you to Willowdale Presbyterian Church!
