2017 will be an exciting year for Canada, in its 150th year, and also, for Woodroffe United Church. What does that mean, you say? Well, here’s the scoop!
At a special meeting on December 12, 2016, Council approved a challenging new Revitalization Project. Woodroffe United Church, like many others, is faced with declining numbers of attendees; more than half of us are 60 years of age or older. This project creates the opportunity for the congregation to look back on our considerable achievements, consider new avenues for growth as a church in our community and chart a course for a viable, renewed future. Woodroffe will work with a consultant from EDGE - a United Church of Canada partner for congregational development. All congregants are warmly encouraged to participate in the journey towardrenewed meaning for Woodroffe.
The scripture that guides our revitalization journey is Matthew 22:38 - Love God and Love your neighbour as yourself.
