Since restrictions have been lifted we will be returning to the Meetinghouse for Meeting for Worship on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. 

All are welcome. As we continue to care for the well-being of our community, we ask that everyone follow the Guidelines below as we move forward in the Spirit during these challenging times:

  • Maintain a distance of two metres/six feet between persons, as much as possible. (Persons from the same household or bubble may sit together.) 
  • We will also ask that Friends refrain from our tradition of shaking hands at the close of Meeting for Worship and we will leave off singing, for now. 
  • Please use hand sanitizer upon entry. It is available by each door.
  • Face masks are now also required for indoor gatherings. Masks are available by the door to the Meeting room if you don't have one or have forgotten your mask.
  •  Anyone who is ill or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, stay home and join us in Spirit.



ST. Thomas City Hall

Please join us at St. Thomas City Hall on Monday, February 10 at 7 PM.

Climate Strike St. Thomas will be presenting a deputation to city council outlining why declaring a climate emergency for the city is the essential first step to developing a meaningful climate action plan. The citizens of St. Thomas and the surrounding area want to join other communities as we work to ensure the health and well-being of all life on this planet. Your presence will send an important message to all the council members, and also to the media who will report to the rest of the community if our numbers are large enough!

A better world is possible.
