We are currently seeking applications for a full-time Minister to lead an engaged and committed faith community!
Bloor Street United Church is a thriving church in the centre of Toronto. We are an Affirming congregation with a long history of strong preaching and community outreach. This is a stable and financially strong congregation with active lay participation in all aspects of the work of the church. We are about to enter the critical construction phase of a property redevelopment process. Strong ministerial leadership will ensure growth in faith through programs and services that bring people into relationship with God. We believe a minister with strong leadership skills should provide equality and inclusion to our urbanized community, which is like a second home.
A formal posting and more information will be available on Church Hub at the beginning of February. Confidential enquiries can also be sent to [email protected]
Sunday Services at Bloor Street
All are welcome for Sunday services on Zoom at 10:30 am! ‘Doors’ open at 10am, and informal conversation (that we affectionately call (ca)Coff(on)ee Time) happens after the service. Whether you’re church shopping, just curious, or returning after time away, you are welcome here. Bloor Street United Church is an Affirming congregation, meaning we are publicly, intentionally, and explicitly welcoming of 2SLGBTQIA+ folks.

A message from Church Council regarding our COVID-19 Response:
Church Life Under Pandemic Restrictions:
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our church building remains closed. We want and need to protect our staff, our congregation and visitors, while we maintain our community of mutual support and care. Some of our programs and activities are continuing, and some new ones have begun. Please contact us through the website, check the web’s events tab, call us at 416-924-7439 or email us regarding:
* congregational care
* committee work
* faith community nursing
* the Refugee Outreach Program
As restrictions are eased, we are continually re-assessing how best to meet these needs in caring and careful ways. Our building at 300 Bloor St. W. will remain our base for most of the next year at least, but it will be a considerable time before it will be possible to enter it safely for group activities.
Chair of Church Council
