New at Westminster:
The Good News Club and Family Fellowships will break for the Christmas Season. Stay tuned for when we begin again in the New Year.
We eagerly anticipate our annual Christmas Potluck this Saturday, December 14th. For the first time this year it will be a Dinner Theatre. The Good News Club will treat us to a play, music and stories. The evening will be capped by the singing of Christmas carols.
There will be a Christmas Eve worship service at 7 PM. Come join us!
Visit the “Sermon Archives” page where you will find the sermon texts given week by week.
English conversation and coffee
This fall we are offering informal English conversation classes for all levels on
- Monday mornings from 10 to 11am starting on September 9, and on
- Saturday mornings from 10 to 11am starting on September 14.
The classes will run for 12 weeks. We are asking for a minimum donation of $15 for the whole course. You will receive a receipt for income tax purposes.
The classes are a way for Westminster to participate actively in the community.
People new to the West Island confirm that they would like to learn or practise English conversation. Perhaps it is to improve their chances in the job market. Perhaps it is to communicate with neighbours and feel less isolated. The Westminster congregation can help newcomers to improve their English skills and befriend them as they settle in the neighbourhood. In turn Westminster will be enriched by learning about different cultures and faiths.
All are welcome. There are no language requirements, assignments or exams. We plan our programme according to your needs.

Hymn Sing-Along at Church
Got a favourite? Psalm 98 urges us to sing a new song unto the Lord, though some of us at Westminster also enjoy singing the old ones. Whatever your choice, on the third Sunday of the month, those of you who arrive early are invited to call out a number from the Book of Praise, and together we sing the first and last stanza of that choice. This fifteen minutes of singing is a great way to prepare for the service of worship that follows.
“Luke Street” Bible Day Camp
We certainly had a great time at Bible Day Camp (read the day-to-day blog)! We were delighted to have made so many friends – both campers and parents. Every single day was a blast – Bible stories, exciting games, devotionals, songs, shared meals and snacks, puppets, the water-day, Lamb – many more!
Many thanks to the CrossTalk team (left to right in the picture: Desirae, Jillian, Will and Dilon) under the able leadership of Jillian, and our youth leader Nathan (email@example.com). Without them, this event would not have been possible. We are also grateful to all the volunteers who gave selflessly of their time and resources and made everything go so well.
All glory to the the Triune God!
