On June 4th, we celebrated becoming an Affirming Ministry at our Sunday Service with song, laughter, and tears of joy! Please see below or photos from our service – many thanks to Rev Cynthia Stretton and Rev Frank Hamper who offered their leadership.
Community Takeaway Lunch
As we all know, hunger does not stop for the summer, so we at Beach United are planning to continue to provide a takeaway lunch at our doors starting next week.
These lunches will include sandwiches, a piece of fruit and a baked goodie every week on Thursdays from 11am-12pm. As always, this is welcome to everyone in need of a nutritious takeaway meal.
In order for us to continue throughout the summer, we would very much appreciate your financial support – you can find ways to donate at this link.
Volunteers may also be needed, so please contact us if you would like to help out! Thank you in advance.

Art as Inspiration for the Mind
Saturday, June 3rd, 1-3pm
The impetus for this dialogue is that these issues matter to us all.
Engaging in the arts changes the course of your life and your brain. Beginning from childhood, the arts foster mental development, sculpt brain maturation, and lessen the effects of poverty and social disadvantage. As we age, art provides a buffer against cognitive decline, allowing us to maintain an island of humanity in the face of a sea of mental, physical and brain loss.
Join us for this free event with music, dialogue & workshops hosted by Dr. Luis Fornazzari MD, FRCPC, Behavioural Neurology, University of Toronto.
