You Are Welcome Here!

Most churches use the slogan  “Everyone is welcomed.”  So, you decide to test their slogan.  With your heart filled with both hope and a little fear, you check it out.  Soon you find out there are rules, expectations and sometimes judgement.  I understand because I have been there too!  At Central, you will find a faith community that really does welcome everyone.  It doesn’t matter where you are in your journey or who you are or what you have.  Together we walk through great times and through challenging times.  We learn from one another and respect diverse opinions.  We do our best to love God and love our neighbours; in short, we strive to follow Jesus.

I came to Central in August 2017.  It was a big year.  I was received into the order of ministry of the United Church of Canada (that means they accepted my ordination from my former denomination), was called to Central and was about to get married.  The dear folks at Central welcomed my partner Michelle and me with open arms and we immediately felt like we were home.

If you are looking for meaning and purpose in life, or you just want to meet some fantastic human beings who live lives of grace, faith, compassion and generosity, come check us out.  Wherever you are, whoever you are, you are welcomed.  Everyone is!
