Our Living Statement...
Strathearn United Church is a loving Christian community living by faith and action, communicating through worship, education, fellowship and outreach, greeting the future with hope.
Our family is a vibrant one, finding fellowship in a variety of activities. Even in a virtual world, the Strathearn community finds ways to connect. In addition to annual and seasonal events, our Book Club and Christian Conversations are still going strong, and we stay connected to the larger church through community initiatives and outreach.

New Hymn Addresses the Invasion of Ukraine
Walter Farquharson and Richard Hall have written a hymn, addressing the Ukraine invasion: "I Will Sing To Our God". Walter has written new lyrics for the music, composed in 1985 by Richard. The biblical inspiration is Exodus 15, The Song of Moses & Miriam. The current inspiration is Russia's invasion of Ukraine. As the situation in Ukraine is timely, they are sending the hymn with the invitation to use and copy freely if it is useful. They are not seeking royalties. Please feel free to forward it to anyone who might have use for it.
Statement for Peace in Ukraine and Donations Link
The invasion of Ukraine is costing precious lives and creating a humanitarian crisis as people flee to safety. The United Church of Canada has joined with partners who witness and work for peace and justice in the world, by issuing a statement condemning the invasion of Ukraine. You can see the statement and other information here, and find a link here to make a donation to support United Church Mission & Service partners responding to rapidly emerging needs. We add our prayers of concern and support for the people of Ukraine, and for their families and friends here and throughout the world.
