"Singing Out and About", a 20-voice LGBT choir from Toronto, perform during the 2013 Pride Church service at Richmond Hill United Church.
Join us for this service, which will include participation by various LGBT related organizations in York Region.
Since 2013, Richmond Hill United Church has been an ’Affirming Ministry’ within the United Church of Canada.
The Affirming Ministries Program is a network of United Church congregations and ministries that declare themselves to be fully inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. To become an Affirming Ministry the congregation of Richmond Hill United Church undertook a process of education, discussion and discernment, had a congregational vote, and declared itself to be a faith community that embraces diversity and the participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. At a congregational meeting, the congregation of Richmond Hill United Church overwhelmingly voted to become an ’Affirming Ministry’.
Following this ecumenical community celebration, Richmond Hill United Church will host a social hour with light refreshments.
