COVID Update:
Gale Presbyterian is closed during the time Ontario is in lockdown.
Staff will periodically be in the building to look after any pressing issues. They will mostly be working from home and are available by email or by leaving a message at the church.
When our region is moved from lockdown to condition red we will reassess the building closure and in-house live worship.
Through all this we will ensure there is worship available online via our YouTube channel (

Please note: We will not be offering our January Tuesday Take-Out lunch. Stay tuned for details regarding February’s date, provided that we can go ahead with this again.

Rev. Scott will be away until January 5th. If you have a pastoral emergency, please contact Rev. Kees Vandermey (519-807-1394)

Visit our YouTube channel for our weekly Sunday services (each new service will premiere at 10:30 am and then be available indefinitely).

Year End Donations:
Any donations dated December 31st, 2020 or earlier will be recognized as a donation in the year 2020 and must be received by the end of the year. All other donations will be credited to the year 2021.
Details on ways to give at Gale Presbyterian can be found on our website:
If you are dropping off a donation, you can put it in the mail slot found on the door to the left of the main doors.

Every season Rev. Scott comes up with an engaging series of sermon and worship themes for Gale Presbyterian Church.
He’s out of ideas and needs your help.
For the season between Christmas and Lent he is asking you to choose the sermons.
Finish this sentence “I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO HEAR A SERMON ABOUT …” and email your sentence to Rev. Scott at
It can be based on scripture, on a social concern, on whatever is important to your life now.
Any ideas? Let him know and he’ll put together a sermon series for the winter.
