Elaine directly you may call her cellphone number 613-240-9388. Our pastoral care team are willing to be listening ears. You may leave a confidential message at 613-435-4500, and someone will call you back as soon as possible. You are not alone; we are here for you and we are here for each other. This is one of the joys of being a community.

Pastoral Care Team
“Reach out and connect in Christ’s name”: In these very difficult times due to COVID-19, we all need one another more than ever in our church family. The members of the Pastoral Care Team are offering their care and spiritual compassion, as well as their non-judgemental listening ears to those who request them on a confidential basis. Though we cannot have face-to-face visits yet, we can still connect by phone, e-mail, cards, technology and most of all, through prayers. Our contact person for July is Joy Judd or you can call our confidential number (613-435-4500) and leave a message which will be returned promptly. For more supportive information about living in COVID times, see our website link at https://www.gcuc.ca/what-we-do/care
Healing Pathway Team
The GCUC Healing Pathway Team is offering a modified ministry of healing and prayer within the church and community. Monday mornings, we gather via Zoom technology with anyone who wishes to receive a distance healing session, pray and meditate together. We are inviting anyone who would like to join us in these Zoom meetings on Mondays at 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. to experience Healing Pathway in a new way. Please contact our Coordinator, Nancy Kerr at firstname.lastname@example.org to be invited or to give us names whom we can include in our healing prayers. Alternatively, you can call our confidential number (613-435-4500) and leave a message which will be returned promptly. We can still connect heart-to-heart in faith and hope!
