Fellowship within Little Britain

Munch and Mingle

On the first Sunday of every month, we meet after church for a potluck lunch and coffee. We also celebrate the birthdays of the month. There is a bin for the Food Bank set up and some groceries available to purchase for it, in case you forget to bring something.

Caroling

At Christmas time, some folks head out with a few goodies to sing Christmas carols to those who can’t get out to church easily any more.

Every fall we celebrate the place of pets, both past and present in our lives with a special service. All critters are welcome.

Halloween Party

When Halloween is nigh, we wear our costumes to church (if we want to), play some spooky games and then share some ghoulish grub like Eyeball Soup and Witches Brew.

Reaching out to the Community

Locally

Selkirk Food Bank

We collect food items regularly for the Selkirk Food Bank. At Christmas time we make up hampers for several local families.

Globally

Mission and Service Fund

The United Church of Canada has an efficient, centralized fund that donates to worthy projects across Canada and the world. Little Britain United Church has benefited from this fund! We have received several grants. Support this mission and ministry through designated donations at church or through the Mission and Service Fund web site.

Fair Trade

We have an on-going commitment to consume fair trade products at church. Little Britain purchases fair trade coffee from local coffee roaster greenbean coffee imports to consume and sell. Purchasing fair trade means farmers are paid a fair price. It also protects children and supports environmentally-friendly farming techniques. We are making a difference in someone’s life!

A Green Church

Little Britain is taking steps towards becoming a greener church. Our new, 4800 square foot hall is equipped with a geothermal heating system, energy efficient lighting, and passive solar heat from south-facing windows. We have an on-going scrap metal recycling program, as well as regular recyclable collection.

Season: Easter

Let me keep company always with those who say "Look!" and laugh in astonishment, and bow their heads
