The Affirming Ministry Team is excited to be formally launching a series of sermons, learning opportunities and engagements for all of us to learn, pray and discern what it would mean for us to become an Affirming Congregation. What is an Affirming Congregation? The Affirming Ministries Program is a network of United Church of Canada congregations and ministries that declare themselves to be fully inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. And it asks each Ministry to take action. We want to encourage you to explore what this means for us as a Christian community.
