    If you're looking for a place to worship where ideas matter, and are put into action, this may be the place for you. We are an open, affirming congregation of compassionate people. We try to balance exploring the meaning of our faith in these changing times with helping others as Christ calls us to - here, and in the world around us.

    We welcome all who come through our doors - all genders, sexualities, races, faiths and all manner of questions. Each week, we rely on our service to renew our faith, like returning to a well. We have a wonderful music program, with a classically trained composer leading our large, enthusiastic choir.

    Our commitment to seek justice takes many forms. We have people helping grandmothers in Africa who are raising children orphaned by HIV. We have an active refugee outreach program, where we help refugees settle into life in Canada, and provide financial assistance for getting the paperwork done.

    Today our numbers are still strong, with over one hundred people coming to most services. We have a thriving Sunday School program, with classes for children of all ages, including teenagers. We also have a nursery for small children so parents with babies can enjoy the service.

    We hope that you can find a home here with us, among people who believe life is full of meaning - but it takes some help to find it - and make it. Please join us in making your life and ours more meaningful. By helping each other, we help ourselves, too.
