A public worship service in celebration
of its 75th birthday

On September 26, 1944, The Canadian Council of Churches was established in an inaugural worship service at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church. For 75 years, The Canadian Council of Churches has contributed to faithful public witness, transformative education and learning, and foundational research and dialogue.
Today we respond to Christ’s call for unity and peace, seek Christ’s truth with an affection for diversity, and act in love through dialogue, prayer, and witness to the gospel.

Join us as we give thanks for the ways God has worked through the one ecumenical movement in Canada. ln addition to songs and prayers that reflect our member churches, The Rev. Amanda Currie, Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, will preach on “Growing Up Together”.

All are welcome! A freewil offering will be collected for the work of the Canadian Council of Churches.
