Affirming

Rosedale United Church welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities to attend, join, celebrate life passages, and participate with us in the call to leadership, mission and outreach.

Some churches worldwide have been unaccepting and a source of grief for many in the LGBTQ community.   Rosedale United Church is a sanctuary that offers a community, sharing comfort, healing, and openness to all.

With the help of the Holy Spirit, our congregation will continue to develop as an affirming inclusive community to honour diversity and challenge injustice.  We commit ourselves to work and share with those who have suffered discrimination, to create a community open for growth and education.
