Sunday morning services at Sydenham-Heritage – 10:30am  WORSHIP SERVICES ARE IN-PERSON AND ONLINE @ twitch.tv/sydenhamheritageuc 

  • Masking: masking inside our church building is optional. As your church board we know this to be an emotional and very personal choice, so remember to be kind and respect each other’s decision to mask or not mask.

OUTSIDE CHURCH GARDENS
We all want to see our outside gardens look nice throughout the summer. In order to do that it takes time and a significant amount of money to sustain this program. Yearly mulch costs between $350 to $400 and flowers cost about $250 to $300. That comes to nearly $700 per year.
This cost does strain the church budget. Donations would be helpful and appreciated.
If you would like to donate money to this project, please use a blank envelope with you name and envelope number and mark it OUTSIDE GARDENS.
Place envelope on offering plate or take it to the church office.
Thank you
Property Committee

Updates from Worship:
Would you be interested in Greeting/ Ushering Sunday mornings? Would you like to participate in Sunday worship as a lay leader? If you answered ‘yes’ or even ‘maybe’ please contact a member of the worship committee or leave your contact information with the church office 519-753-1248… remember WE ARE THE CHURCH!


Recycling opportunities:
As you know the Fix-it Crew of Sydenham-Heritage collect papers to recycle to Hartmann Manufacturing to make egg cartons. The revenue from the sale of paper goes to help maintain the solar panels.
The Fix-it Crew would like to start a new fund raiser. It will begin collecting aluminum beverage cans. The money raised will go to funding the supplies for coffee hour after the church service. If this fund raiser is successful there will be no need to contribute to coffee and tea after church.
So save your aluminum tins, put them in clear plastic garbage bags and drop them off at church in the same area as you do the paper. Don’t forget to remove the pull-tabs because we have a drop off for those too!!

Remember along with newspapers & aluminum cans we are also recycling milk bags & pop pull-tabs – drop off containers for these items can be found outside the church office.
