COVID-19 Updates

The Simcoe/Muskoka District Health Unit region is now in the Red-Control level effective Monday March 8. In light of this, the Official Board voted unanimously to shift Collier Street United Church back to Phase 1.

What does this mean?

Worship leadership will take place outside the Church building. All services will be offered only online effective immediately, and the building will be open only to staff.
We appreciate that Christmas is a special time in the life of our Church family, and in that light we want to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy.

The Grand Family Flash Choir is on summer holidays

Check back in August for fall programming.

Contact Sandra Lisa at music@collierunited.ca for more information.

Tiny Food Pantry Coming To Collier!

What is this?

Similar to the Tiny Libraries that you see in neighbourhoods, Tiny Food Pantries stock food items to help people who are homeless and/or have food insecurity.
The pantries are stocked with items based on the population in the area. As a number of the guests on and around our church property have no home, we would look at stocking ready to eat, drink or wear items, such as bottled water, granola bars, nutrition drinks, socks etc. depending on the season.

Collier United is part of a city wide pilot project for the Tiny Food Pantries. For the first 8 weeks The Barrie FoodBank will be monitoring and stocking the food pantry, tracking what and how much is used. After the 8 week pilot project Collier will be responsible for restocking and monitoring the food pantries, with help from the Busby Outreach Van and The Barrie Foodbank. 

Our Pantry will be located in the lower garden near the tall light standard. The supplies to construct the Pantry were donated by Elmvale Home Hardware, along with a cash donation from MPC out in Oro.

The really cool thing is that this is a multi-church, cross-denomination project – with Trinity Anglican, Grace United and Burton Avenue United all participating along with Collier in the pilot. St. Andrew’s Presbyterian will be helping to stock and monitor once we get up and running. The goal is to expand the Pantries across the city…helping people in many neighbourhoods. 

Installation will happen later this week, with the launch scheduled for Monday July 26. Stay tuned!
