The United Church will be celebrating an official Pride Sunday for the first time in 2019 and is encouraging communities of faith to mark this day and celebrate the lives and ministry of LGBTQIA+ and Two Spirit people. Worship Resources are available on The United Church of Canada website.
Being Public, Intentional and Explicit
This grand tree sits on the corner of the lot at Royal York Road United Church in Toronto, an Affirming congregation in our region. It was decorated with ribbons for the Affirm Conference last summer and they plan to re-create the rainbow tree for this year’s Pride celebration — an outward sign of the hospitality and welcome inside, and a witness to their neighbours. Share your efforts at being public, intentional and explicit in your affirming ministry with the hashtag #SWRCPRIDE2019.
