Where all means ALL

In 2019 we began our process to become an offically affirming congregation of the United Church of Canada. This intentional process has lead us through thoughful discussion, story telling, education and compassion. In June 2021 our Congretation will formally vote to adopt the designation of an Affirming Ministry. 

Lynn Valley United Church wants to be known for radical inclusivity & generous hospitality so all may know the unconditional Love of Jesus Christ.

Our Affirming Vision Statement

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:

  • Recognizing and unlearning our internalized biases, both as a congregation and as individuals
