TUMC is a Christian community in the Mennonite-Anabaptist peace church tradition. We aspire to be a family of faith that welcomes people of diverse backgrounds and stories, worshipping and supporting each other, while following Christ’s example in working for peace and justice in our urban context.
We mark the first Sunday in Lent this week on the theme of “Hungering for Hope.” (And aren’t we all?) Worship begins at 11 a.m., in person and online. There is no Sunday school this week because of the holiday weekend, but adults and youth are invited to gather at 10 a.m. for a Lent prayer group that will be meeting for the next six weeks. Meet in the pastors’ office (main level, near the accessible washroom). We will use the Lent materials from the Mennonite Spiritual Directors of Eastern Canada, available in the logged-in part of the TUMC website under Additional Resources.
We’d love to have you join us. Whether you’re a committed follower of Jesus, interested in exploring questions of faith in a safe and welcoming environment, or simply curious, there’s a place for you at TUMC!
CHURCH ON THE GROUND meets at 1774 Queen St. E., in the Beach neighbourhood. We’ve relaxed our anti-Covid practices, but masks are encouraged.
CHURCH IN THE CLOUD is open to everyone, far and wide, via the Zoom link available in the emailed announcements. (Don’t get the announcements? Contact Mariekebefore noon Friday.)
To benefit from spiritual encouragement, community news, and get the weekly Zoom Worship link, ask to receive TUMC Connects by email. Just send us a quick email at email@example.com with ‘sign me up for TUMC Connects’ in the subject line and let us know a little about how you found us. (A bit of information helps keep our online gatherings safe and welcoming.)
TUMC invites people of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, generations and abilities to full participation and inclusion. We are wheelchair-accessible and offer large-print hymnals and hearing assistance devices. We’re always glad to welcome newcomers. Whether you’re new to the city, visiting or simply curious, please feel free to check us out! For more, click the About Us tab. You can also follow us on Facebook @ChurchonQueen .
Our congregation meets in territories of the Wyandot, Haudenosaunee, and Michi Saugig Nations. As beneficiaries of a violent history of colonization, we recognize our responsibility to uphold treaty relationships and so seek to be guided by Indigenous truth-tellers toward restitution, restoration, and reconciliation.
