Who Are We?

Church Family

We are a church family who seeks to live the gospel message in our lives each day. We try to imitate Jesus in his inclusive love for all people as a beacon of hope.

We are a very diverse congregation with many gifts and a huge heart. We believe in encouraging everyone to find their gifts and share them generously. Our creative worship has something for everyone. We celebrate Communion each month, baptisms upon request. We honor Creation time and bless animals. We have special celebrations where we pray and anoint those living with difficult life situations. We have wonderful prayer shawl ministry and Friendly Visitors group as part of our caring. We sing out of Voices United and More Voices song books and our choirs share wonderful anthems. We have memorial hymn services as well as other services to mark the various faith moments of the Christian journey. We believe in the words "We are not alone".

Growing in Faith and Action

We welcome people of all ages forming faith through our nursery, our children's programming as well as the Rejuvenation Council for older teens. For our Adults we are blessed with two bible study groups, a woman's book club and chances for workshops and sessions. We have a strong UCW group, and Affirming and Diversity group, eco-group and craft groups amoung the many groups here.


Living out the call to do justice

We try to embrace people with love as Jesus did. We believe we must stand in solidarity with those who find themselves at the margins. Our FOOTPRINTS 4 Autism program offers families with children living with Autism weekend respites. We support Operation Backpack for school supplies to young people. We support Joanne's House and at-risk homeless youth 16 to 24. Among the many ways we try and make a difference, we support the Massey Centre, Backdoor Mission, St. Paul's On-The-Hill food bank, First Nations issues and women's shelters.

We are not alone. We live in God's world...

OUR WORSHIP SERVICES

Participation
Our worship services are structured to provide a variety of elements, and to involve members of the congregation as an active part of worship.
Family Focus
Because of the belief that worship is of importance to family members of all ages, there is a special segment of the Worship service dedicated to the children.
Music
Music forms a significant part of every worship service, typically including organ and piano selections by the Music Director, choral singing by the Choir and congregational singing of hymns.
