Can’t make it in person? Our worship services are broadcast LIVE on Siloam’s YouTube channel.

The previous week’s services are broadcast Sundays at 11:00am on Rogers TV London.

Archives of past services are available to watch in our Media Room.

 

Young at Heart
The Young At Heart Group meets each Sunday morning at 10:30 am from September to June. All ages and all abilities are welcome. We explore our faith through Music, Art, Drama and Fun. We continue to use Illustrated Ministry as a formal curriculum, and mix it with other meaningful opportunities.
 
We showcase our studies to the congregation at the end of each service. It’s an effective way for the congregation and those at home watching on Rogers or on Facebook to witness community in a safe, inclusive and different way. The feedback from the congregation and the community at large has been wonderful!
 
No need to pre-register. Join us in the library-chapel starting at 10am.
 
Dreams Come True Music Studio creates opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to participate in high quality productions and to transform their lives through music. The studio celebrates diversity, inclusion, acceptance, and all abilities.

Music

Music ministrie-siloam-church-ontarioSiloam United Church is proud of the music legacy that has grown and developed throughout the years. Our Choir features up to 30 voices and performs each Sunday morning, as music is an important part of worship.

Siloam also boasts a 3 octave hand bell choir, the Siloam Sounds, who often perform during worship and for special events such as concerts and even weddings.

We provide a varied music program at Siloam. If you would like to join our Choir or the Siloam Sounds, or have a particular talent you would like to share, please contact us at the church office at 519-455-9201 or [email protected].

ELUCO (East London United Church Outreach)

East London United Church Outreach (ELUCO) is a United Church ministry that advocates for and supports people to build community in the midst of challenging circumstances. This ministry primarily serves the Marconi community of south-east London but also includes the ELUCO Food Cupboard at Gethsemane Gardens and the Welcome Wednesday Hospitality Lunch program in the Huron East corridor of north-east London.

Siloam United Church contributes $12,000 each year toward ELUCO’s $100,000 annual budget.

Urban Roots Garden

Siloam United Church in conjunction with Urban Roots London has cultivated several acres of vacant land at the back of the property.

Since 2021 we have produced 2000-3000 pounds of fresh food per year. In addition to growing vegetables, our mini-farm includes a fruit orchard and fruit-bearing bushes. It also provides employment for students the Canada Summer Jobs Grant.

Urban Roots donates at least 33% of this food to local charitable organizations, and sells 33% directly to individuals in the community at affordable rates (50% of market value).

Love gardening or eager to learn? We are looking for volunteers to help with this growing project!

The United Church Of Canada Mission And Service Fund

The Mission and Service Fund of the The United Church of Canada supports mission work here in Canada and overseas. It also supports the Services of the United Church such as theological colleges to train ministers and church leaders, summer camps, benevolent causes and conferences.

M&S helps to support ministry in isolated parts of the country, and to uphold our community outreach and presence in the urban core.

Siloam generously supports the work of the M&S Fund through s substantial monthly pledge as part of our budgeted committment to Outreach.

Canadian Foodgrains Bank

Siloam’s growing project is on 21 acres near Ballymote, generously donated by Dan Fraleigh.

In 2023, Siloam United Church donated $13,011.14 for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

LIRSA (London Interfaith Refugee Sponsorship Alliance)

Siloam supported LIRSA financially and continues to offer non-financial support through the time and energy of volunteers who help refugee families cope with day-to-day living.

Every second, refugees somewhere in the world are fleeing from their homes and cities seeking safety.  Their plight is hard for many of us to imagine.  They leave because of fear or famine, but always with hope.
