ABOUT US

We are a welcoming, inclusive congregation that has been meeting in downtown Toronto since 1891.

How do you live a meaningful life? What is the self? Do you have free will or is everything determined? What will make you happy? What is happiness? Why is there so much suffering in the world? Does anything have any meaning? If not, why do you value some things more than others?

We explore these and similar questions in our Sunday services, our seminars and lectures, and our meditation events.

All are welcome. LGBTQ. Interfaith.

Toronto Congregation is part of Community of Christ, an international denomination headquartered in Independence, Missouri, USA. Visit the Community of Christ Canada's website and the International Headquarters website.

On regular Sundays, we begin adult Scripture School classes at 10:15 am. Worship Service begins at 11:00, followed by snacks and social time at noon.

On the first Sunday of each month a prayer service replaces the adult class and the 11:00 hour is a Communion Service.

  • 10:15 am - Scripture School
  • 11:00 am - Worship Service
  • noon - Social Time and Snacks

SEMINARS, LECTURES, DISCUSSION GROUP

Check out our calendar

On Tuesday nights we embrace our mission to "continually learn and grow together" through a series of seminars, lecture series, workshops and discussions on topics including scriptures, history, theology, philosophy, and living life meaningfully in general.

ZEN AND MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

Check out our calendar

Our meditation group meets every Tuesday and Thursday at this peaceful and relaxing space in downtown Toronto. Our practice is based on the Zen Buddhist tradition and the mindfulness technique.

With guided exercises, we relax our body and calm our thoughts. We explore our consciousness envisioning images that draw together ancient thought and mythology from the Eastern and Western traditions with up-to-date theories in the fields of neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and philosophy of mind. We continue with 10 min. of silent unguided meditation, ending with mantra recitations. All levels and spiritual types are welcome.

ALL TOGETHER NOW

An intergenerational church experience

The second Sunday of every month we host "All Together Now", an intergenerational church experience, when everyone regardless of age will learn, share, and enjoy. To our traditional Sunday format, we add colouring, games, processions, and more, without diluting the content of our message.

DIRECTIONS

Our new Centre Place church is on the ground floor of the Modern, a new mixed-use tower at the north-east corner of Richmond and Sherbourne (320 Richmond Street E. #101). We're located in the "Old Town" neighbourhood in the heart of downtown Toronto.

If you are coming by transit, the nearest Subway Station is Queen. Take the street car east about six blocks to Sherbourne.

For drivers coming in from the north and east, take the Don Valley Parkway to the Richmond exit heading west, the church will be on the right. Coming from the west, take the Gardiner Expressway to the Jarvis exit, taking Jarvis north to Adelaide, and then east to Sherbourne. On Sunday mornings street parking in the neighbourhood is free and relatively plentiful and we are located across the street from a Green-P city parking lot.
