In-person worship services suspended: April 2021

The leadership of all four congregations of the South Mountain-Hallville Pastoral Charge had made the decision to comply with provincial COVID-19 health regulations during the Grey Level lock-down for the next 28 days (i.e., from April 3, 2021 to May 1, 2021). In-person worship has been suspended until the end of the lockdown. 

In-person worship services: February 2021 

February 21, 2021
  • South Mountain United Church at 9:30 a.m.
  • St. Andrew's Heckston United Church at 11:00 a.m.

February 28, 2021

  • Inkerman United Church at 9:30 a.m.
  • St. Andrew's Hallville United Church at 11:00 a.m.

Everyone who attends in-person worship services must wear a face-covering for the entire worship service and maintain physical distancing of 1 metre. There will be no singing during the in-person services. Everyone who plans to attend in-person worship services must self-assess for Covid-19. If you are feeling unwell in any way, please stay home and attend online worship. In addition, there will be other church-specific protocols in place. 

Online worship (Facebook Live) will continue. The warm-up starts at 12:20 p.m. and the service begins at 12:30 p.m. At a later date, the SMHPC Council will determine when it is safe and feasible to resume weekly in-person worship services at each location. 


As communities of faith, we share our gifts by passing the offering plate. Here are ways we can continue to share our gifts.

Good old post-dated cheques are a familiar way for people to give. Place them in an envelope, sealed with a wet sponge—not licked—and mail them to the church office.

An automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account.
