About Our Church

Headingley United Church is a Christian congregation meeting weekly in the RM of Headingley.

Church picnic.. years ago!

Our worship begins at 11am on Sunday mornings from September through June at:

Headingley United Church, 110 Bridge Street, Headingley, R4H 1G3.

Children are very welcome in our church. On most Sunday mornings children join us for the first half of the service and then proceed down to the basement for Sunday school. Children of all ages are welcome to stay for the entire service.

If you enjoy singing our choir would welcome you to join us. We are an informal group that enjoys sharing music and community.

Once a month, we stay after the service for coffee morning. The basement is busy with great food and chatter. We now have a chair lift allowing everyone to access the basement.

We hope you feel warmly welcomed and enjoy our wonderful community.

    Can you believe that this Christmas will be the 35th consecutive one in which we have gone community caroling? In 1981 we piled into John Curry’s huge grain truck and went to the homes of the shut in and elderly, where we were warmly received! After and hour and a half or so, thoroughly frozen, we ended up at John and Barbara Larkin’s house sampling John’s baking and drinking hot chocolate.
    We invite you all to join us for caroling on Sat Dec 17th..meet at the church..time to be advised…and end up at the Mills’ for goodies afterwards!

    OAKTABLE – The Good News and the Bad News
    Thanks to our wonderful supporters within this church and other supporting congregations, along with a very successful “End Poverty Now” initiative sponsored by 1JustCity, our cupboards are full to overflowing with food, socks and hygiene items! Thank you for your contributions. This is a wonderful position to be in, even though it poses us with a storage problem. It is better to have a storage issue, than a food scarcity issue and for that we are very grateful! We will let you know when more food, toiletries, and socks are needed.

    NOTE: We are out of storage space so we ask you hold on to your food, toiletry, clothing and sock donations until we have room to house them. Thanks for your abundant giving!

    Now that winter is here we do need : men’s briefs and long underwear ( size M & L), women’s briefs and long underwear (size M & L), winter gloves, mitts, toques, and scarves.

    You can continue to help Oak Table with a couple of projects: 1) Our guests need for bus tokens outweighs our capacity to give. With the phasing out of bus tickets, we now need to buy bus tokens for our guests and can only do this with cash at the Transit office. Consider giving a ride to someone in need by donating money for this purpose. 2) At Christmas, for the second year, we plan to give our guests gift cards which will help them cope over the Christmas holiday when we are closed. Last year we gave 191 people gift cards to Giant Tiger, Subway and Tim Hortons. This allowed them to get a meal, coffee, and sundries they could choose on their own. We were told by many of our guests this was a real gift, and for some, the only one they received. If you would like to contribute to this project, make a cheque out to Oak Table and indicate it is for gift cards.

    In June, 2016, Donna Dunford and I packed up three very large boxes of “little dresses” as well as nearly new children’s warmer clothing etc. and I sent it off to Disaster Aid Canada in Victoria, B.C. I received a lovely email in response from the Director there, who passed along the info that they were getting ready to send a large shipping container of aid to an earthquake struck area in Ecuador, and these items would be very welcome there. Since we still have lots of pillow cases, fabric and trim, we will try to reconvene to do some sewing this Fall again.

    We completed 53 “little dresses” this Fall, and as many underwear and shorts. Donna Dunford and I packaged everything and it has gone to Disaster Aid Canada in Victoria to form part of a relief shipment for hurricane struck villages on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Thanks to all who came and cut, pinned and sewed!
