In accordance with new guidelines issued by the Province of Ontario to contain the spread of COVID-19, the Session of Guildwood Community Presbyterian Church has decided to close the church building and suspend all activities, including Sunday worship, effective immediately and until further notice. We will look to the advice of governmental and health authorities when determining a potential date to re-open the building.
We encourage our congregants to reach out and support each other by phone during these difficult times. As well, we remind everyone that we must continue to pay our bills; in the absence of Sunday worship, you may sign up for pre-authorized remittance (PAR), donate online through the link on our website, or drop off your offering envelope in the mailbox at the church. Do not leave a cash donation unattended in the mailbox; instead, please call the office (416.261.4037) to ensure someone will be there to receive it. The building will be checked daily for mail and phone messages. If you are not comfortable leaving an envelope, you are welcome to contact the office (once again, 416.261.4037) and someone will pick up your offering.
Pray for each other and for our world as we continue to be challenged by this evolving health crisis.
Bruce Morrison – Clerk of Session
Edit June 15, 2020 — Text added to indicate cash donations should not be left in the church mailbox unattended.
