Our Purpose and Mission Statement

Working to build God's dream. Help wanted!

We the people of Glen Rhodes United Church, are determined that our life together will be fully inclusive for people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, differing abilities, ethnic origins and economic circumstances. Therefore, we hope that God will work in us so that we will be a sensitive congregation, willing to share our faith and gifts in language and worship, in the life and work of our church and wherever God calls us to do justice in the wider community, with compassion, fun and laughter

Welcome back Sunday (September 7): part 2


The Ex is upon us, so that spells back to school for younger people. And a quest for a church in many families.
If you live in the east end and are looking for a community that is inclusive, that cares about peace, the planet and all the people in it where you can add your energy, or introduce children to values such as kindness, openness, justice-seeking, fun-loving, Glen Rhodes may be the place.
Thinking of checking us out? Wear what feels comfortable. Bring the family. Bring your dog (September 21 is Blessing of the Animals but they’re welcome every week). Bring your questions about faith and life. Sing like you mean it: our Director of Music is an amazing accompanist and song leader. Meet people who share your hopes for the neighbourhood and the earth.
Creation Time starts September 14—six weeks of focus on our relationship to Creation. We collect things such as batteries, small electronics and those new light bulbs that can’t go in the garbage as one expression of our commitment, and as a help to those who can’t easily get to the city waste drop-off.
The worship service is at 10:30, as you likely spotted already. Parking on Gerrard is free until 1 o’clock. People are generally on their way around noon, so that shouldn’t be a problem unless you get really involved in a conversation at Coffee Hour!
