Did You Know?

As a fixture on Main Street since 1891, the Church has always functioned as a community hub. We have many community groups and programs using our facilities at the moment.

We are grateful that others find our sacred space so worthwhile in their gatherings.

PRAYER SHAWL KNITTING AND CROCHETING CREATORS

Over 1000 Prayer Shawls have been given to those in need and they are such a huge success for those receiving them. What a gift and a fellowship for those creating!

Typically, gatherings are on the third Friday of the month at 1:00 PM in Gordon Hall. Bring wool and needles. Call Jeanette at 403.678.2030 for further information about this community/ecumenical group.

LGBTQ2 & ALLIES YOUTH GROUP

In the summer of 2017, a Bow Valley Pride Youth Group was founded, and met regularly at Ralph Connor Memorial United Church.  This group provided friendly, safe space for LGBTQ2 teens and allies to meet every second week.

This group is presently on hiatus, but please check Twitter @BVY_Pride or Facebook BowValleyPride to watch for re-launch plans if and when they arise.
