Offered each year, this six-week course is designed to be a brief survey of the foundational elements of church membership with opportunity for discussion and exploration of our religious background. While it is primarily for people preparing for confirmation, we also welcome anyone who would like to just explore the basics, whether they have been confirmed or not.

World Day of Prayer / 2015 / Journée mondiale de la Prière
2015 Mar 6 at 12:00 pm
Refreshments and fellowship to follow
Location: Robertson-Wesley Sanctuary

Come celebrate with the women of The Bahamas who have designed the service for the World Day of Prayer this year.
The World Day of Prayer is a worldwide movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together on the first Friday in March each year to observe a common day of prayer. Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm their faith in Jesus and engage with the whole world; are enriched by the faith experience of Christians of other countries and cultures; share burdens of other people, praying with them and for them; and use their own talents in the service of God's world. Prayer and action are inseparable and both have immeasurable influence in the world.
The World Day of Prayer is coordinated by Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada and hosted by local groups.

Open Hearts—Open Community

In response to God's call, we,
the congregation of Robertson-Wesley United Church,
declare our commitment to opening our hearts and our church family
to all people in our community,
regardless of sexual orientation, age, gender,
differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance.
We recognize that many people's lives continue
to be devastated by hatred, prejudice, and inequality,
therefore, as a compassionate and caring spiritual community
we will stand with those who are adversely affected
by injustice, alienation and oppression.
