Allergies:  Many moons ago it was passed by Council and CCK that we are a peanut and nut free facility. Since then we have fallen into old habits. This is a gentle reminder of this when bringing food items to the church. Thank you for your understanding in this. There are members of our congregation who have severe medical nut and peanut allergies. Blessings UCW and Worship Team.

Pitch In Week is April 22-28 this year. Once again, we are encouraging everyone to join the effort to keep our roads and ditches clean and beautiful. On Saturday, April 27 all are encouraged to come and meet at the church at 8:45am to team up and become ‘ditch warriors’ for a stretch of road. Lunch will be available at the church from 11 am, and we try to wrap everything up by noon. Garbage bags are provided courtesy of Tim Horton's, a dumpster is provided by Limerick Environmental services and the township provides free tipping for that dumpster. All you need to bring is rubber boots, gloves, and enthusiasm! If you can’t join us on the 27th but would like to contribute your time earlier in the week, you can pick up garbage bags at church on the 21st and bring filled bags back to the church on the 28th for disposal. Hope you can help in this always appreciated venture!
