Our Religion (Our Church Family)

So who are we?
You may wonder who we are…
 
A word of explanation...
We are an Affirming congregation of the United Church of Canada striving to be inclusive in our welcome, our mission, outreach and advocacy as Jesus was.
 
Our Sunday service is designed to awaken or re-awaken the disciple of Jesus in all of us. Through Scripture, music, hospitality and the celebration of Baptism and Eucharist we find our way as followers of Jesus back out into the world.  This coming together to be fed and feed one another we find strength to go out and love as God has loved us. We are a joyful people and strive to welcome one another in all we do. We seek to engage the artists and musicians and writers to find creative ways to help us touch God.
 
When we celebrate Communion, all are welcome, young and old at God’s table to eat and drink and be nourished. No one is turned away.
 
All our committee work, our special projects, our events, our social gatherings are to build a sense of community that is based on love and justice for all God’s people.
 
Our doors are opened to the community who use our facilities and we are excited that this is a safe space to do so.  We are bursting at the seams with the activities of our neighborhood and we are blessed to be a part of it.
 
We love to journey with people who are interested in becoming full members of our community through membership gatherings or transfer of membership from another United Church.  You can connect with the office at 905-839-7271.
 
Come and check us out…we would love to meet you and answer any of your questions.
