AFFIRM UNITED

Welcome to Gower's web page dedicated to the
AFFIRM UNITED
initiative of the United Church of Canada

What is an Affirming Ministry? Affirming Ministries are congregations, presbyteries, Conferences, educational institutions, and other ministries within the United Church of Canada (UCC) that publicly declare their commitment to inclusion and justice for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Open Hearts is a UCC resource that guides congregations in the Affirming process. Gower Street United Church is not an affirming congregation ... yet! Our timeline below shows our plan for 2018. Check out events in What's New? as well as suggestions for resources and links we're building and collecting. Join us on this exciting journey!
