Haliburton Pastoral Charge churches remain closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Discussions are under way about the possibility of the Haliburton and Lochlin churches reopening at the end of July if Ontario enters the proposed 3rd stage of reopening. If the churches reopen, the online service will move to 11:15 a.m.
Services are held online on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. when the churches are closed. Online access opens 15 minutes early to give viewers time to tune in. Visit the HUC website Watch Online page for details, or go to the channel directly through YouTube or by clicking the “Online Services” button on the Home page. Please join us!
