Church Life and Work

“YOU” can help with life of our church by volunteering to do the Church Sign (October & November).   If you are interested in one this opportunity please contact Elaine Clays (519-461-1065) or

If you have anything you would like on the Thorndale Church sign for the month of Aug. please contact John Hopkins.   Thanks to Yvonne Elliott for looking after in July.

Please note that the new phone number for the Joint Charge is 519-609-6132 For many reasons the Joint Board has decided to use a much less expensive and far more flexible internet service. You will be able to connect with the person you need or leave a message if you prefer! We hope you will find this system more effective in reaching us!

Please consider taking a shawl or blanket to someone you know who can be blessed knowing that God loves them and they are being prayed for. if you enjoy knitting, crocheting or tying knots please consider making a shawl or blanket. Supplies are available. Talk to Pam.

REVAMPED LENDING LIBRARY located at Thorndale United Church, open to all at TZUC. The old books that filled the shelves have been removed and there is space for new reading material! Please consider donating gently used CHRISTIAN  books or a financial donation for our team to purchase new books. (leave on offering plate in envelope marked LIBRARY) Everything that goes on the shelf can be freely borrowed and returned when you have finished with it. We are interested in children’s books too!!
