Sunday September 18th

What is your Spiritual Heritage?

In the reading for this Sunday Paul calls on Timothy to remember “the faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice…” 

Where did your faith live first, before it lived in you? 

We will remember and celebrate those who helped faith come alive in us.

Art of Gratitude- a family art event


It was a historic day at Norval United this past Sunday. We welcomed 24 new members into the congregation, the most ever joining Norval United on one day, as far as anyone can remember. There was such a feeling of joy and celebration as we welcomed young families, singles, couples, folks from other United Churches, friends from other denominations, people from spiritual wandering.

We always say that being a member isn’t crucial to being part of the Norval United family. We have may people who have been around a long time who are not official member but are still very important to the community. But it was something to welcome so many people who want to be able to say, “I am a member of Norval United Church.”

Our new building (is it still new after 3 years!) hasn’t felt so alive for a long, long time. One of the exciting things about welcoming so many new members is that every time someone new comes along we grow and change as a community. We look forward to growing together and working together with all our new members. How blessed we are.

Come Sing With Us!

Here is your opportunity to sing in person for Thanksgiving Sunday. Rehearsals will be after church in the sanctuary September 18th, 25th and October 2nd to prepare. 

If you love it, there will be music for Christmas and Easter, too. Feel free to join us for one, all or something in between! 

For more details, contact Matt or Amy

Fall 2022

Walking Through Grief is an 8 week program offered by NUC and supported by Jones Funeral Home. Participants will watch a video, share in discussion and find support from others who are grieving.

The fall session runs Wednesdays 7:00PM-8:30PM from September 21st until November 9th. A suggested fee of $25 covers the cost of materials.


This group is for those dealing with the death of a child. It could be a young child or an adult child, a recent loss or a loss from years ago. The grief of a parent is unique. Coming together with those who know what you are going through can be healing.

The group meets the last Tuesday of the month from 7:00PM-8:30PM.

A note about Food Truck Friday

Due to an issue with the availability of trucks that were booked, we need to cancel the final event. A big thankful goes out to Trudy Watson-Leung for her hard work at coordinating these events. We can't wait to bring back the Food Trucks next year!

Curious about Community Gardening?

Providing fresh produce to community members in need, growing and learning about healing plants, connecting with our spiritual selves through the outdoors?

Drop a line to Jen to connect into the dreaming and conversation about creating abundance from the land we've  been gifted.

Youth and Young Families

We are blessed at Norval United with many dedicated volunteers and staff. Some of the people you know and see often and others work behind the scenes. 

Over the next few months we will be highlighting some of the folks at NUC. 

Keep a look out each week to meet someone new!

This week, we introduce you to....

Alan Forde


We asked Alan some questions so you can get to know

him and his role at Norval United.

What is one word that describes you?


What are you reading or watching or listening to these days?

I am a huge Star Trek fanatic, so I'm often watching that. I love to read about events happening in the world. I also spend lots of time reading information about cars. I used to write a blog about car care for the staff at my school.

How long have you been connected to NUC?

Since September 1987, though I believe some think it was 1986.

What brought you to NUC?

I was living in Milton after coming back from school just outside of Boston and was looking for something to do. I saw an ad in the paper. I applied, got an interview and then got the job. The rest is history. I remember Lois Reid, Glenn Laidlaw and others interviewing me.

What is your favourite thing about the NUC community?

The people. They've always treated me very well and I like to connect with all the people who come chat with me about music. I love the support. Everyone has always been very gracious and supportive of me. I never feel like I'm taken for granted at Norval.

What is one thing people would find surprising about you?

I can't sing! I worked with the choir at NUC for many years, but I've never been a singer. My youngest brother sings, I just never got into it.

If you could be a kitchen utensil, what would you be and why?

I would be a frying pan, because I hope that my presence will help to warm people up.

Ways to Serve

We are looking for folks who can help provide treats for Sunday morning's in person service. You can bake, pick up treats from the store, we even love the last minute run to Tim's for Tim Bits.  

We love sharing coffee and treats on Sunday morning before and after the service. If you would like to help provide treats for a Sunday morning, you can email Jenny in the office. You can bring them for a specific week or drop them off at the church to be stored in the freezer.

Volunteers Wanted

A big thank you to all the people who have signed up to help out with serving coffee, tea and treats on Sunday mornings. We are looking for volunteers for November. It is a great way to get to know the community. Don't worry if you don't know what to do, we have folks who can walk you through it the first time. If you can help, contact Jenny in the office to sign up for a Sunday. 

Other Opportunities to Serve

Here are a few other excellent opportunities:

Kids' Church Leadership (help run an activity with our kids on Sunday) 

Welcome Team (a great way to get to know people)

In-Person AV Team (help run the tech in the Sanctuary)

Food Truck Fridays (help set up and welcome/engage the community)

Consider these or other ways you feel called to participate in the life and work of NUC! Contact Jenny Morrison in the office at 905 877 6122 or by email.
