Worship Service for June 6, 2021 on ZOOM & YouTube

Order of Service – Sunday June 6, 2021 @ 10:30AM

We continue our live broadcast from the Sanctuary this morning. We remain closed to public worship. Rev. John, Fred, and our Tech Team are present this morning.

We are now able to livestream (broadcast) via YouTube each Sunday. You don’t need a link like ZOOM. Just visit our St. Andrew’s Guelph YouTube Channel and select the live service. Thanks to our Tech Team for making this further option available. You can now invite your friends and families to our YouTube channel instead of worrying about ZOOM links.

This Sunday we will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Please be prepared prior to joining the service with your bread-like and beverage-like substances to share in the Feast that Jesus has provided. We rejoice that Christ makes the ordinary – holy!

Prelude – “Berceuse” (N. Rawsthorne)

Territorial Acknowledgement

As we gather, we acknowledge that Indigenous people were here long before us who cared for this land and called it home.  This territory has a rich history and was, and is to this day, considered sacred by many First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples.  We have a responsibility to care for this land as their ancestors did and to continue to strengthen our relationships with our Indigenous neighbours.
