We support all public health regulations to limit the spread of COVID-19 and are thankful for the widespread opportunity for vaccination.

We enjoyed Worshiping together, in-person, at Banff on Nov 28, 2021 and Dec 19, 2021
but due to rising COVID case numbers in the Bow Valley, we are discontinuing in-person Worship until further notice.
Every Sunday, a Worship Service is posted on the “Ralph Connor Canmore” YouTube channel – click here

INCLUSION

In the same way that Jesus reached out to all people, our faith community is called to be open and inclusive.

As congregations residing on treaty 7 lands, we continue to seek ways to be inclusive of all people of the Bow Valley,
regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, cultural background, education level, mobility challenges… ALL people!
We are delighted that both Ralph Connor and Rundle Memorial United Church, Banff, are Affirming Ministries.
