Our vision statement
We Are An Affirming Congregation!
In 2015 Manor Road United was designated an Affirming Ministry within The United Church of Canada.
Affirming Ministries provide information, acceptance, support, and justice-making for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and their friends and families. They declare in words and actions, that God loves and accepts people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender in the same way that God loves and accepts us all. And they call upon the rest of the church and society to do the same.
Affirming ministries are also aware that those of different sexual orientation or gender identity are not alone in being marginalized by church and society, and that we are also called to work for greater understanding, sensitivity, and inclusion of all those seeking a spiritual home, particularly those whom we might inadvertently exclude.
Manor Road United Church, along with the broader United Church of Canada also recognizes, and supports and celebrates same sex marriage.

Manor Road United Church is on the traditional home of the Huron-Wendat Nation, Metis Nation of Ontario, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation and Six Nations of the Grand River. May we be connected to the heartbeat of the Spirit as one.
