COVID-19 Updates

The Simcoe/Muskoka District Health Unit region is now in the Red-Control level effective Monday December 14. 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.
