The Affirming Team provides leadership in education, discussion and reflection as our congregation moves towards becoming an officially Affirming Congregation, and a member of Affirm United/S'Affirmer Ensemble.
This means that we will be explicitly and publicly welcoming and supportive of persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and committed to the inclusion in congregational life of all persons -- in our diversity of ability, race, colour, economic circumstances, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and life challenges.
On May 7, we held a congregational vote and are happy to announce that the result was 89.2% in favour! We are in the process of becoming a member of Affirm United/S’affirmer Ensemble, and a very special celebration of our new official status has been planned. Read the Media Release for all the details!
Affirming Sermons - a series of five, four of which are available in print.
