Jubilee is now “Masks Optional”

As of July 3rd, indoor activities at Jubilee United Church are “Masks Optional”
We continue to support those who wish to be masked
and maintain distance from others, but will not longer require it of all people.
We are confident that we be able to respect each other
as we emerge into this new phase of pandemic together.

Jubilee Market – June update

[metaslider id=4627]

Our first summer market on June 11 welcomed first-time as well as seasoned vendors.  It was a really terrific variety of both products and services. The BBQ was located on the labyrinth and offered a relaxing, enjoyable environment in which to grab a bite of a burger or hotdog, despite the threatening clouds.

We will continue to hold the markets on the second Saturday of the month.  It’s not too early to start your holiday shopping.  Each month we’ll be joined by some new and some returning vendors. Click HERE to see a listing of all the vendors registered so far for all the markets.  You’ll also find the products each has to offer.  VENDORS: The fall is already nearly completely booked, so don’t delay if you’re interested. We do require that products and services are NOT available in stores.

Jubilee Market – May Update

[metaslider id=4732]

Jubilee held its second market on the sunny Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend.  In addition to the Jubilee tables (Baked Goods, Plants, Information / Silent Auction, and Refreshments), we welcomed 13 vendors, six of whom were returning.

We made a few changes since our inaugural market.  A new floor plan was needed to accommodate the large number of vendors, and the flow worked well.  Our Refreshments menu saw the addition of barbeque items.  Paintings were swapped out for plants, but will return at a later date.

Join us on June 11 for the first of our summer offerings!


Who You Gonna Call?

First…and this is the most important…

Rev. Norm and Rev. Bri-anne are really glad to be your ministers.


Like, really, really glad.

Since Rev. Bri-anne was called to Jubilee in October 2021, your ministry team has been working through how best to divide up the tasks of serving the congregation.  Below is a handy list of “who you gonna call?”.


Rev. Norm Seli, Minister of Worship, Care, and Faith Formation

Worship — includes in-person and online virtual
Jubilee Cares/Pastoral Care
Children & Youth
Faith Formation — bible Study, book studies, etc.
Coffee & Check-In
Elder Care
Benevolent Fund


Rev. Bri-anne Swan, Minister of Digital Community, Growth, and Public Witness

Resistance Church
Jubilee Cares/Pastoral Care
Social Justice & Outreach
Affirm/2SLGBTQI+ Inclusion
Right Relations with Indigenous Communities
Active Adults
Digital Community


This list is meant only as a starting point — feel free to reach out to whichever minister you want! We will both be glad to hear from you. However, if you call Rev. Bri-anne about something to do with Sunday worship, she may suggest you bring your question or concern to Rev. Norm.  If you contact Rev. Norm about something to do with refugee support, it’s likely he will suggest following up with Rev. Bri-anne.

But do reach out to us! We want to know how best we can support you, and how best we might be able to service the Jubilee community.

Jubilee Market Grand Opening


[metaslider id=4512]

The inaugural Jubilee Market was held on Saturday, April 9, to great acclaim. This recurring market is an opportunity for independent vendors to get back into the community after being so restricted by the pandemic for longer than two years. Fifteen vendors, including five in direct support of Jubilee United Church, shared their wares, which included skincare products, jewelry, quilts and blankets, paintings, pine art, greeting cards, baked goods, and a silent auction. COVID masking and distancing protocols were in place. Thanks to the vendors, the shoppers, and the volunteers.

Each month, we will welcome some returning vendors and say hello to some new vendors.

Join us for our next market event on Saturday, May 7, from 10am – 4pm!

Children’s Programming is back and in full swing!

Nursery and Sunday School is starting back up!

We will have our nursery supervised and ready for babies. Haley Brown will be ready to engage children in Godly Play during the Sunday Service time and Youth are invited to meet with Haley and Rev. Norm at 1:00pm in the Heritage Room for a little pizza, a lot of fun and some figuring out who and how we will be as the rest of 2022 unfolds.

If you need any information, please be in touch with Rev. Norm or speak with Haley.

If you would like to volunteer to help in the nursery, in Godly Play or with Youth, speak with Rev. Norm and/or Haley. We are thrilled to have people who want to lead or desire to follow; folks who are keen to help out often or just once in a while. We can provide support and training and we’re pretty sure that we’re all going to have a great time, so if you are hearing that call to offer your time and gifts to our younger folk, please be in touch.

Return to In-Person Worship

Return to in person Sunday worship will take place Sunday, March 6th.

At the Jubilee Church Council meeting held Monday, February 14, it was decided that the return to in-person Sunday worship will take place Sunday, March 6th.  We will offer an in-person Ash Wednesday service on March 2nd which will be live-streamed from the sanctuary.  More information about COVID protocols will be released shortly.

The Jubilee community has grown over the past two years, and we will continue to offer online worship even after the return to worshipping in person in the sanctuary.  Currently, Jubilee worship services are pre-recorded.  On Sunday, March 13th, we will be offering communion.  This service will be live streamed.

Rev. Norm and Rev. Bri-anne are grateful to everybody’s patience as we worked out the best and safest ways for us to gather in community.  We have missed being with you, too! There will soon to opportunities to gather in small groups for coffee and conversation.  But for now, know that we will be gathering in the sanctuary very soon.
