Important Message re COVID-19 Situation

Rainbow Pot Luck News

The Council of St. Andrew’s United Church in North Bay met on Sunday,March 15th to plan a way forward during the current COVID-19 situation. At that meeting, the following decisions were made in a committed effort to keep our community safe and reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

  • Sunday worship services will be suspended with the hope that they may tentatively resume on Easter Sunday. The Council will, however, actively monitor the situation and may extend the suspension as needed.
  • All face-to-face meetings and gatherings of church-related committees and groups will be suspended until the worship suspension is lifted.
  • Outside groups using the church will be permitted to continue doing so provided they take the usual preventative health precautions.
  • The Loaves & Fishes foodbank will continue to operate on Thursday mornings,  but with special modifications in place.

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, members of the St. Andrew’s faith community can still connect by phone, email, facebook,  and the church newsletter, Reaching Out. They are encouraged to visit https://standrews-northbay.ca/covid19/ for additional information.
