  • Has it registered with you – that 320 Princess Street holds a chapel service every Monday morning at 9:00am (apart from holidays) where ALL are welcome?!  Come sing praises to Jesus.  We have two missionaries who regularly lead in worship.  Come hear testimonies and fellowship with the men in our addiction recovery program.  Come hear a sermon from one of our gifted chaplains/pastors who call UGM their mission in serving Jesus.  Please stay for coffee, visit or tour.
  • Can you please help us turn Coleridge’s famous quote, “Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink” to “UGM has bottles of water aplenty, for all-comers to drink”!  It is a tradition that we call on the church family for bottled water at this time of year.  But it is a staple that all year long we can say, “Come! And let everyone who is thirsty come; let anyone who wishes take the water of life as a gift.” Rev 22:17  Donations can be dropped off at 320 Princess St.
