News and Events

Children and youth are always welcome to worship with their families in the sanctuary. The One-Room Sunday School is during the service. Children are welcome to follow Huda and the teachers to the Ladies’ parlor. Physical distancing, hand sanitizing and mask wearing are mandatory for children and youth while in church.

Online Sunday School will join the one room Sunday School during Advent from 10:45-11:30 AM. We will be focusing on the four themes of Advent: Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

The nursery is open in the basement but not staffed. Parents are welcome to use the nursery and are kindly asked to leave any used toys in the assigned bin for this purpose to be sanitized for the following week.

Corona Virus (COVID-19) Update

We have resumed in-person Sunday worship services.

Ontario has now removed capacity limits for in-person worship services so it is no longer necessary to pre-register for Parkdale’s Sunday services. However, it is still mandatory to show proof of double-vaccination and wear masks.  Ushers will be at the door to have congregants sign in and show proof of vaccination so please have yours ready upon arrival. Once checked, your name will go on a list for future services so that you won’t need to be checked in again.  All people in attendance should maintain two metre (six feet) physical distancing from every other person, except from their caregiver or from members of the person’s household. 

Please note that, until further notice, because of the COVID-19 pandemic,  most other meetings and activities that take place at the church are suspended.    We will advise as soon as there is a change.
