Worship Services – Orchard Valley offers two worship services:
- 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.
Men’s Fellowship Luncheon – The Men’s Fellowship Soup Luncheon will be held on Friday, September 13 at noon with soup and sandwich at a cost of $5. Our guest speaker will be Dan Stovel from EMO who will speak on Emergency Preparedness. Please sign up on the signup sheet in the church foyer or let Ian Godfrey or the office know if you plan to attend…we need to know numbers for food preparation.
New OVUC Guitar Club – OVUC’s newest group for church members is a Guitar Club. The “Steeple Strummers” Guitar Club is open to all congregants of OVUC. The only prerequisite is that you bring your guitar, as these are participation sessions.
The Steeple Strummers meet the first Monday night of each month (except during the summer). Please contact the OVUC office to register (902-681-0366, ext 1, AdminOVU@bellaliant.com).
The Steeple Strummers will resume rehearsals on Monday, Sep 16 at 7:00 pm.
Car Rally, Saturday, September 21 – Get your team together: four sets of eyes are better. You will need a car, a full gas tank and a cell phone. Bring something for the potluck lunch. Registration begins at 9:00 am at Orchard Valley. Teams are sent out at regulated intervals with instructions and questions to fill in. The rally takes about 1½–2 hours. We return to the church for lunch. Your score is based on correct answers, mileage and maybe time. Spelling counts! Will your group take home the trophy? Contact the office to register (902-681-0366, ext 1).
Fall Turkey Dinner – The Men’s Group will be hosting a Fall Turkey Dinner on Friday, October 4 from 4:00–7:00 pm at Orchard Valley United Church.

Weather Cancellations – 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.
