Annual Congregational Meeting — The Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, March 15 following the 11:00 am service. The storm date is Sunday, March 22.
- During the fall/winter/spring session, we offer an informal 9:00 am service, and an 11:00 am service that is more structured, both at Orchard Valley.
- During the summer session (July & August), we offer a 9:30 am worship service at Orchard Valley United Church in New Minas and an 11:00 am worship service at the Covenanter Church, in Grand Pre.
All God’s children are welcome at each service.
In the event that one or more of our Sunday Worship services is cancelled due to weather, a message will be left on the OVUC phone and website. We will also do our best to send out an email (but cannot guarantee this option will be available). We also endeavour to place cancellation messages with all the local radio stations. In the event of a power outage, your first source for cancellation news should always be our phone line – 902-681-0366.
