Normal hours are Tuesday – Thursday, 9:00am to 2:00pm (closed for lunch).
Our pantry helps local residents of Fredericton in more ways than one. It provides a comforting hand and listening ear to those in need, a warm smile and a place free of judgement.
The committee has comprised a list of non-perishable items that are needed to once again fill our shelves:
Pasta and Sauce
Chicken Noodle Soup
Individual Pudding Cups
Rice Krispy squares
Apple sauce (individual serving size)
Donations can be left in the lobby of the church or arrangements for pick up can be made, if necessary.
Again, thank you for helping make our pantry the better part of someone’s day.
Return to In-Person Worship at Nashwaaksis United Church
Dear Members and Friends of Nashwaaksis United Church,
On behalf of our Church Council, I am pleased to inform you that we will be returning to in-person worship services, beginning Sunday, September 27th. For those unable to attend physically, the services will be recorded and then posted online by Monday afternoon.
In order to comply with provincial government requirements around physical distancing, contact tracing, etc., we have put a plan in place to make our worship services as safe as possible. Here are the key things you need to know:
We will have limited seating to ensure appropriate physical distancing. Our maximum capacity is approximately 75 people.
Because of limited seating, you will need to register in advance to attend the service. Registration can be done through an online form (a link will be sent out in the weekly congregational email and posted to our Facebook page and church website) or by calling the church office at 458-9452. Registration should be done no later than Thursday afternoon each week. If the number of people registered to attend exceeds our maximum capacity, those who are unable to be accommodated will be given first priority to attend the next service.
Masks will be REQUIRED for everyone attending the worship service (except for those who meet the government criteria for not wearing one).
When you arrive at the church, proceed directly to the gymnasium and NOT the sanctuary, ensuring that you maintain a 2-metre distance from others at all times. Please sanitize your hands upon arrival. Your contact tracing information will be confirmed in the gym and an usher will then take you to your pew. Please keep your jacket and other belongings with you in the pew.
If you wish to make your offering by cash or cheque, an offering plate will be available near the entrance to the sanctuary. The offering plate will not be passed during the worship service. Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) is still the preferred method for receiving donations at this time.
At the conclusion of the service, the ushers will dismiss the congregation by rows to help maintain appropriate physical distancing.
Once you have been dismissed by the ushers, please proceed outside and do not gather in the foyer.
There will be NO COFFEE HOUR following the service due to the associated health risks.
There will be NO NURSERY or Sunday School at this time. Individually packaged activity bags with colouring pages and crayons will be available for children to use during the worship service.
Please plan to arrive at least 15 to 20 minutes early for the church service in order to allow time for check-in and being seated by the ushers.
We anticipate that there will be a few “hiccups” during the first few weeks as we adjust to the “new normal” of gathering for church in this way. Please bear with us as we adjust to the new protocols.
If you have any questions, please let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can leave me a message at the church office.
