Affirming Ministry Vision

In September 2017 Trinity became an Affirming Ministry of the United Church of Canada.  You can find out more about the Affirming Ministry program here.  

As part of our process of learning and growth towards becoming an Affirming Ministry, Trinity crafted this vision statement which expands on our long-standing mission goal to welcome each person as a child of God.

In keeping with our mission goal to “open our hearts and minds to welcome each person as a child of God” Trinity United Church is committed to welcoming and including everyone in all aspects of the life and work of our congregation, honoring and affirming each person’s uniqueness.

As a community of faith and action guided by Jesus’ teaching and ministry, we seek to nurture love, justice and diversity.

We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for those in the Trinity family and the community at large, including persons of any age, colour, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, marital status, family composition, social or economic circumstance.

We are dedicated to being good stewards of God’s world, working and living towards justice, freedom and peace for all.

We recognize this is a growth journey for Trinity and we commit to walking this path together, looking for God’s guidance along the way.
