We have returned to a form of in person worship while continuing to broadcast via Zoom. If you would like to attend, you are required to send in a copy of your vaccination certificate to email@example.com before registering for in person worship.
Once you have sent in a copy your vaccination certificate, please register at Eventbrite using this link (by Friday noon):
We will be continuing to broadcast services through Zoom. Follow this link: facebook.com/RichmondHillUnitedChurch/.
A recording of the weekly sermon and past services are also on our Facebook page and YouTube.
To access the home based worship resource so you can use to follow along or take time for personal reflection, follow the link for order of service below:
There will be a limit of up to 50 people on the main floor and 25 people in the balcony. Entrance to the Sanctuary will be ONLY through the front doors on Yonge St.
Masks and social distancing will be mandatory.
Pre-Registration – Proof of Double-Vaccination:
We need to know that everyone over 12 years who wants to attend in person has been double-vaccinated. No exceptions will be made at this time for those who are unable to receive the Covid vaccination. Those who are not double vaccinated will be invited to join worship on line. The church office will compile a list of all members/friends of the congregation who are double-vaccinated. It will include your name, your telephone and e-mail (for contact tracing if necessary,) and the date of your second vaccination. The purpose of making this list is to reduce the time it takes on Sundays to welcome you when you come to worship. We know it is a bit of a process, but we will walk you through it, and it only needs to be done once.
Registering for Sunday attendance:
You will need to register online through Eventbrite every week you wish to attend worship in person. You may register at any time up to Friday at 5:00 p.m. for the upcoming Sunday only. This will be an easy process. More information will follow as we get closer to opening.
Attending on Sunday:
You will be greeted by members of our friendly welcome team and your name will be checked against the list of registrants for that week. If you are not registered, you are not able to attend. No walk-ins are allowed. You will be asked to review some screening questions. If the answer to all questions is “No”, you will be welcomed into the sanctuary and shown to a seat. We will be filling the sanctuary from front to back. Seats are physically distanced.
If you are in need of pastoral care or spiritual support, please contact Rev. Ruth Noble at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-884-1301 ext. 2.

May we continue to keep each other and world in prayer, especially those who are most vulnerable, those who are grieving or struggling, and all of those on the frontline putting themselves and their families at risk to keep all of us safe. We will get through this together.
Forest Church: We will gather this coming Sunday September 19 at 2:00. The Fall equinox, Mabon, happens that week and we will reflect on creation with that theme.
Place: Phyllis Rawlinson Park on Leslie Street, north of Elgin Mills. Drive to the second parking lot area, passing the first which is at the interpretive bldg. It's September, the air is different and there are signs of the changing season. Come join us and be part of this reflective time.
