Lynn Valley United Church wants to be known for radical inclusivity & generous hospitality so all may know the unconditional Love of Jesus Christ.
On Sunday 27th June, 2021, the congregation of Lynn Valley United Church voted unanimously "YES" to becoming an officially designated affirming congregation of the United Church of Canada. We also voted "YES" unanimously to approve an inclusive marriage policy ensuring the right to marry for all LGBTQIA2S+ people.
On Sunday 14th November, 2021, during Worship, we became officially recognized as an Affirming congregation. We were presented with the official Certificate. We are grateful that we have achieved this goal and that we have joined together on this journey.

At Lynn Valley United Church we celebrate the diversity of God’s creation and affirm that all people of any gender identity or sexual orientation have a place of inclusion, worship, discipleship, and leadership.
Lynn Valley United Church commits to the following:
With your help and generosity we raised the funds needed for our brand new all-inclusive Rainbow coloured bench that graces the South side of our church building. This beautiful permanent bench is a symbol of welcome and hospitality to all.
Thank you to all those who contributed to make it happen.
