Welcome to the Church of the Redeemer. We are delighted that you are visiting our website. It gives you an opportunity to peek behind the scenes and discover more about the Christian community that gathers at the corner of Bloor Street and Avenue Road.
Our home sits on the traditional lands of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississauga peoples of the New Credit, and in the heart of the city of Toronto.
We are a community on the move. We offer hospitality to all people. We seek to serve the needs of the seasoned pilgrim, the sojourner and seeker. We strive to feed the poor and to stand with those in our society who have little to no voice. We nurture our children, support our teens and glean wisdom from our elderly. We are a diverse community that makes room for all. Whatever the project or endeavour, we steep our ministry in scripture, prayer, sacrament and song.
We invite you to explore our website. You will find a little taste of our worship, prayer life, programs and community. Here you can sign up for programs, learn how to keep up-to-date through our communications, become a member or friend and share in the ministry at the corner.
Thank you for visiting.
