Church of the Kettles

Dear Friends:

We extend greetings and best wishes to you and your families, looking forward to spending time in Muskoka this summer and visiting The Church of the Kettles during its 137th season of worship.

With a more normal return to life in Ontario as the threat of Covid recedes, our plans for summer worship at The Church of the Kettles are developing well. Stacey Hewgill has set up a schedule of ministers for most Sundays in July and August. The schedule cane be found here.

Although we remember fondly the music of Fran Hayter, we are beginning a new era of music and are seeking new musicians to add their music to our summer services. Our current director of music Stan Hunter is requesting support with piano, guitar, trumpet, flute, saxophone, or any instrument to accompany his great voice during the services. Please reach out to Stan (705-641-0152) if you know of anyone who could provide accompaniment.   

We will begin the season with a service at the church on Sunday July 3, at 10:30 AM, led by Rev. Gordon Flint. Please join us, all friends and family are welcome!

You will notice in the above picture that the church pavilion has been given a fresh coat of paint this spring! Thanks to our volunteer crew who cleaned the property and milled the NE windows so they fully close for the first time in several years!

Our plan is that all of the summer services will be held inside the church pavilion, with the possibility of perhaps one service outside to honour the tradition of song services past (and during Covid).  We will be updating you via email with any changes throughout the summer. Details can also be found here.

Yours truly, Paul Doolan, for The Board of Trustees.
