Welcome to St. James United Church

Our Vision ...

at St. James United Church in Etobicoke is to be a Spirit-filled, connected, transformational church that challenges the status quo and provokes interaction on our journey of faith.

As a living expression of this vision we seek to be an inclusive congregation that embraces diversity and welcomes all people as God’s good gift to the world. We take joy in celebrating God’s presence through relevant worship and inspiring music. At. St. James United Church you will find a professionally staffed nursery, a first-class Sunday School with engaging and creative venues for children and youth, and a wide range of social and service opportunities for all ages.

We value justice and compassion and endeavour to be God’s hands and heart in the world reaching out to others with hope and help, healing and wholeness. We actively do this through our justice and well-being ministries including Reiki, Christian Meditation, a host of service opportunities and 40 Solar Panels on our roof.

The community of St. James United Church, Etobicoke is an open-minded, progressive congregation that listens respectfully, acts with integrity, nurtures spirituality, and leaves room for God’s mystery. We do not see ourselves as perfect, but as God’s grace-filled people through whom God chooses to make a positive difference.
