IMPORTANT NOTICE for all members of Strathmore congregation:

Given the requirements established by the federal, provincial, and medical authorities, to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we as a congregation will make the following changes until further notice.

– The Strathmore building will be CLOSED on SUNDAY MORNING. DO NOT COME to the building on Sunday Morning. 

– There will be an ONLINE worship service that will be available to members. 

– We encourage all members to join us in our ONLINE worship, individually or in small groups.

Schedule for the ONLINE worship for Sunday AM:

Please purchase grape juice and unleavened bread (or make it) ahead of time so that you may partake in communion. 

NOTE: Sunday night worship and Wednesday night Bible study will continue as usual at the building, but attendance must not exceed 50. That is a requirement of the Government of Ontario.
