Melrose Worship Services

Melrose worship services blend contemporary and traditional elements, with a focus on thoughtful sermons and appealing music. Our Youth Chorus warms us up and our Senior Choir provides wonderful punctuation to the liturgy and scripture readings.

Services are held in the magnificent sanctuary, surrounded by a colourful array of stained glass windows. (For more about our windows, you can download a booklet or take a tour through our photo galleries.)

There are plenty of friendly faces to welcome you, so please join us and stay for refreshments and even a chat afterward.

Worship: Sunday, May 28, 2017

This Sunday is the Sunday closest to Ascension Day.  It also falls on the weekend of the Annual Meeting of the United Church's Hamilton Conference in Port Elgin which Dr. Gardner is attending.  As a happy consequence, we are delighted to welcome a familiar face to the Melrose pulpit -- the Rev. Dr. Francis Chisholm who is celebrating a major milestone this year: the sixty-fifth anniversary of his ordination as a minister in the Church of Scotland.  The focus for Dr. Chisholm's sermon will be the ascension narratives in Luke-Acts (Luke 24: 44-53, Acts 1: 1-11) exploring how the Ascension event helps us to understand God's redemptive activity in the world.  The service will be conducted by our Worship Committee chair, Margaret Duff.

The Rev. Dr. Philip Gardner
