Our Mission


Building The Kin-dom of God

Sydenham-Heritage United Church is a progressive Christian faith community that stands with others to work for healing, justice and wholeness for the world and for creation itself.

We actively seek partnerships with other faith traditions to build understanding and achieve common goals.

We seek to practice the inclusiveness of Jesus by welcoming and celebrating diversity including; ableness, age, class, ethnic origin, race, marital status, gender identity and sexual orientation.

We aspire to be a nurturing congregation where all are loved and cared for, empowered and encouraged in their spiritual journey to experience God more deeply and serve God more faithfully.

With humility, we ask for God’s love, forgiveness, power and a sense of humour to be the face of Christ in the world.

Since its beginning as a Methodist congregation, Sydenham-Heritage has existed to provide a church where:

  • all people feel welcome and included
  • worship is central to congregational life
  • people find mutual support, caring friendship
  • outreach to the community and world is practised

If you are new to our church please drop by the welcome centre located at the back of the Sanctuary and pick up a visitor’s packet.
