Vision and Mission Statement
We at Birchcliff Bluffs United Church are a progressive and outreaching Christian community within The United Church of Canada.
We reach out as Jesus taught us with a love without borders. We embrace all those of differing abilities, ages, races, religious and/or ethnic heritages, gender identities, sexual orientations, genders, economic status, and cultural backgrounds into the membership, ministry, leadership, and life of this congregation.
To achieve our vision we commit ourselves to:
Growing in our faith through worship, scripture, study, music, and joyous celebration.
Becoming an affirming ministries centre for the Scarborough and East Toronto communities through the ongoing support and expansion of our affirming ministry programs.
Actively reaching out to support those in need locally and globally.
Being open to the guidance of the Spirit as we seek ways to share our faith and speak courageously of it.
Approved at March 8, 2020, Annual Congregational Meeting
Birchcliff Bluffs is a diverse, open, and inclusive Christian congregation seeking to make a real difference in the world seven days a week and to be a vital presence in our community. It is our hope that you will discover many possibilities here, possibilities for nurturing your own spirituality and enriching your life, as well as opportunities to serve others and the world through acts of caring, justice, and compassion. We welcome your contributions and ideas.
You will also find a wonderful music program led by our remarkable Music Director, Randy Vancourt. The last Sunday of every month is dedicated to special music.
When you visit us, you will experience a warm welcome. We are a "come as you are" congregation; we dress as we are comfortable, which is everything from ripped jeans and sneakers to sparkly dresses. Whatever you are wearing, whatever you feel about God, wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you will fit right in.
