Date: September 06, 2020  ONLINE ONLY (link below)

Westwood Open House

Topic: FORWARD MOTION

Each year, on the Labour Day long weekend, Westwood hosts an Open House – inviting newcomers into our space and welcoming back all who are returning. It’s an informal gathering – with a lot of ‘getting to know you’.

This year, we welcome you into our ONLINE space – and share plans for the coming season. How will we ‘do church’ ONLINE, now that we’ve had some time to adapt to the idea? 

Join us for this easy going / no sermon / ‘welcome back’ into community. 

We’ll have a conversation about ‘how are we all doing?’ … and what we’re needing … as we continue forward.

There is an opportunity for ‘social time’ in break-out rooms following the service – a time to connect with friends old and new. 

Our 2020-2021 Westwood Theme is FORWARD MOTION.  September is “CONNECTION”.

Service Leaders: Reverend Anne Barker & Ilara Stefaniuk-Gaudet

Musician: Steve Bell

Service Tech: Lori Crozier
