Summer Pickup Choir

The Summer Pick-up Choir will be starting up for the summer the morning of Sunday, June 23. We will meet each Sunday morning in Stewart East Hall at 9:45 am for a short rehearsal before sharing a special piece in the morning service. All are welcome and no experience is necessary! 
The Summer Pick-up Choir will be a fun opportunity for everyone, all ages and all abilities, to work together to offer a musical selection each week. And each week stands alone. That means you can come for as few or as many weeks as you'd like (including just once or every week). The Summer Pick-up Choir is completely flexible and lot of fun! So, come and join us starting Sunday morning, June 23 at 9:45 am. And be sure to watch for the teaching videos that will be included in each week’s Friday notes from Maya!

AFFIRM IUC Merchant Gift Cards

Raise $30,000 for Islington

Raise $30,000 for Islington
At No Cost to You
Will You Buy Groceries or Gas This Week?

Here’s how it works: Let’s suppose you’re going to spend $75 this week on groceries and $25 on gas (most families will spend more). Over the month, that’s $300 on groceries and $100 on gas. By purchasing a gift card from Islington for $300 of groceries and $100 for gas, the church will get $11.
Okay, that’s not a lot. But what if 250 people in the church did this every month? That would add up to $2,750 a month and $33,000 a year for Islington. And that is just for groceries and gas – money you’re spending anyway.
You can get gift cards for movies, restaurants, clothing and more. Here is a just a SMALL sample of retailers: Amazon, Hudson’s Bay, Staples, Best Buy, La Vie en Rose, Starbucks, Canadian Tire, M&M Meat Shop, Swiss Chalet, Chapters/Indigo, Old Navy, Children’s Place, Cineplex, PetSmart, Tim Horton’s, Dollarama, Pizza Pizza, Toys R Us, Home Depot/Rona, Shopper’s, Walmart.
To see all retailers, visit For an order form, email or visit Stewart East Hall after services.

The Go Project Update

The GO Project Update

This week the GO Project staff are wrapping up their final week of training before they part ways to run the many amazing children and youth programs across the country. They continue to explore the many ways that GO can help inspire and support young people in making the world a better place. This year, the team will be working with Matthew 5:14-16 to discern God’s call in their own lives and live into the many gifts that these young people bring. The GO office staff continue to be busy with promoting GO and supporting the staff in the beginning of their exciting summer. Stop by the GO Project office anytime to say hello!

Healing Pathway Ministry has been active at IUC for six years.

After the session, most people feel relaxed and renewed, with a deep sense of peace.

You are invited to receive prayers in a confidential 30-
minute Healing Pathway session. To book a session or
if you have any questions, please contact Dorothea Vickers (

Healing Pathway Sessions are held in our Chapel the first and third Thursday of every month between 2:00 and 3:00 pm (September to June).
