The United Church of Canada views the religious practice of all people of goodwill with respect and gratitude.
Connecting with community is a large part of what makes St. Stephen’s a great place to be. We understand the Spirit of God is at work in many different faith communities. This understanding impacts how we choose to ‘do church’ and who we are as a group or community. Far too many people are on the fringes, that is why St. Stephens offers a safe place for anyone to come, be real, and explore their own notions of faith. Whether you’re Agnostic, fall within various forms of atheism, spiritually searching, or just want to have a place to call home, you are welcome to explore here.
St.Stephen’s is open to you, and your exploration of faith and spirituality.
For Christians, Jesus is the way we know God. Our understanding is nonetheless limited by human imagination. God is greater still and works in our world by mysterious Spirit that knows no distinction at the doorway of a Christian chapel; Buddhist, Hindu, or Sikh temple; Aboriginal sweat lodge, Muslim mosque, or Jewish synagogue.
As individuals we work together with other faith groups whenever possible, and among people of other religions in Canada. We promote matters of justice, peace, and human dignity, here and around the world.
Today, difference is everywhere around us and, we believe, a great cause for celebration.
