Beach United is a vibrant community – find out more here!
Beach United Church is a congregation of the United Church of Canada, located in the Beaches neighbourhood of Toronto. We’re a progressive community hub formed on February 25, 2007, by the amalgamation of two congregations each of which had deep roots in the neighbourhood: Bellefair United and Kew Beach United.
Our mission is Exploring Faith and Building Relationships with God, People, and the Earth.
Our Strategic Goals are:
Goal 1: Build a church that meets the spiritual needs of the congregation, and beyond, in progressive and creative ways
Goal 2: Engage with the community in ways that promote justice seeking for the earth and its people
Goal 3: Manage our activities in ways that ensure financial sustainability
Goal 4: Create a vibrant church that will attract people of all ages and social situations
We strive to be a community where people of all ages and circumstances can enrich their spiritual lives. We invite you to visit us at a Sunday morning worship service, or during one of our activities during the week.
The United Church Creed
We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
We trust in God.
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.
Thanks be to God
On Sunday April 2, 2023, Beach United Church made an intentional decision to become an Affirming Community of Faith. We now formally become part of Affirm United / S’affirmer Ensemble, a network of faith communities that proudly declare the full inclusion of all people embracing people of many identities. We acknowledge and consider our way of being in the world, aware of places of privilege and exclusion, known and unknown, that require our attention, so we can truly, authentically extend ourselves fully and lovingly to all.

Our Church is fully accessible in compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).
