On Sunday (May 30) we said goodbye to Christabel Pinto who has been the centre of our music life in Stoney Creek for three decades. We wish her all the best in her new position with St Augustine’s, in Dundas ON. Our church council has scheduled a retreat later in June to review church and community needs for the coming years and to determine how best to meet the needs of Stoney Creek United Church and Bell Tower Place, our community hub. This will include review of paid and volunteer work in the church and lead to a search process. We are pleased to have heard expressions of interest, and we expect to be able to provide a full and complete response shortly. In the meantime, our choir’s previous recordings are providing the musical support for our worship.
For our worship on July 3, 2022, while their minster is on vacation, we are joined by our neighbours from Wesley Fruitland United Church. Bear with us as we get a better handle on presenting the lovely contribution of music to our service. We are using mic’s that haven’t heard live music since March , 2022. They will be with us for the rest of July. You could come to church next week to see and hear them in person. In the meantime, here is our worship service.
On March 6 public worship was restored. This is a big deal for a church that had worshipped continuously since 1792. We are not aware of any other interruptions. Historians are invited to provide insights, if they have any.
Dear members of Stoney Creek United Church.
Many of us have managed to survive this ongoing pandemic and deal with all the rules and regulations. Your council thanks you for your patience as we navigate our return to regular worship.
Once again our government is modifying provincial mandates and guidelines. On Tuesday evening the members of council met to discuss the changes proposed starting March 21st. It was our decision to appeal to you that we all continue to wear masks and socially distance for a while longer to not only protect ourselves but respecting our friends and neighbours that may have health compromises.
Norm McCarthy, Council Chair
Public health rules still apply. The live service is recorded Sunday morning and posted here after post- production is completed.
We look forward to preaching, praying, singing and sharing God’s love together in the church sanctuary as Stoney Creek people have done freely since 1792.
You can share our weekly podcast with a friend who’s not using a computer. Just phone your friend, put the phone in just the right position next to your computer and play the podcast over to the phone to your friend. A great way for them to stay connected. Why not give it a try?
We make a recording the live worship service each week and then upload it to the web site. With post production between the 10AM service and the upload, you can expect to find Sunday audio services here by 2PM.
We celebrated Remembrance Day on November 7. You can find the audio of our service in Earlier Audio.
Our setting was somewhat muted, compared to parades and lots of people singing, but these are quieter times.
We celebrated Thanksgiving with all Canadians. This October we thank Christabel Pinto for thirty years of service as our music director.
