In the large busy Metropolis of Toronto, it is good to come home to Kimbourne Park United Church. Whether you are a visitor, a seeker or a longtime member, we will help you to feel at home.
We are authentically trying to be a welcoming, inclusive, intentional congregation, which celebrates diversity as a member of the United Church of Canada.
The reflective neo-Gothic interior warmly envelops you. One member described it as a vision of an ark, a boat offering sanctuary and safety in our bustling lives. A newcomer sat in a pew, looking around, and exclaimed, “The building is so friendly.” “If you think the building is friendly, wait ’til you meet the people… they are wonderful,” replied the minister.
Kimbourne Park is a small community of faith (attendance averaging 30–40), linked to its past, radically progressive in its theology, and daring in its visions of the future. Attracting active children, young adults, and elders; singled and coupled; straight, gay, lesbian, transgendered, and searching; we are very much alive in the covenant… come and explore your spiritual journey with us. Come, be part of our change and new growth.
We don’t have the answers; we'll help you with the questions.
Come worship every Sunday at 10:15 AM.
A summer-camp themed service.
All of our hymns are church camp songs that are familiarů and not so familiar. We will be singing about Arks and hickory bark as we "rise and shine." Come out and have some fun!
Start thinking about your summertime memories. Did you have a "best summer ever" experience? During sermon time, the microphone will be open for you to share your summertime memories. What was summer like for you 20, 30 or even 60 years ago?
For our last service before the summer Sabbath, we will worship outdoors, followed by a salad potluck.
We want to make this an ecofriendly event so you bring what you are eating off of, and then take it home to do with your dishes. And of course we need desserts. (Hint: Someone here, who is very tall, loves butter tarts.)
After lunch there will be games for kids of all ages.
Weather not permitting? Not to worry. Come anyway. Everything just moves indoors.
