Affirming Ministry

Affirming Ministry

In 2013, Winnipeg Presbytery became an Affirming ministry of The United Church of Canada. We celebrated this milestone by naming our Vision in the following way:

2013 Vision Statement

We, the members of the Winnipeg Presbytery in the United Church of Canada, declare our commitment to be an affirming and inclusive court of the United Church of Canada.

We are called to a ministry of Christian service to the congregations, community ministries and other that includes everyone as we continue to work to remove all barriers that marginalize and exclude, such as those based on age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, or social standing in our Winnipeg and beyond.

With the power of the Holy Spirit we are called to offer an open door, an open heart, an open mind and an open hand as we continue to work for justice, dignity,and inclusion of all in the church community and in society.

In order to live into this ever changing, challenging and life-giving ministry, we also hold up this Vision & Action plan as a way to hold us accountable to our promises and commitments. We hope that the resources below are also of use to your own exploration of what it might mean to live into a theology of diversity!
