We invite you to celebrate God's love with us. Our church is God's home. We share it with you as a place for life: a place where you can learn, grow, participate, connect, and celebrate!
If you're new here or would like to connect further, fill out a Connect Card!

Are you part of a denomination?
We are a congregation of The United Church of Canada.
Is there a difference between the 9:15 and 11:00 AM Service?
9:15 am is more contemporary and features the Contemporary Band. The 11:00 am is a more traditional worship service.
It’s not just for good people.
The whole point of Christianity is that none of us are good enough to make it on our own. If you feel like you need some support, guidance and help in life, then join us at TEMC, where we proclaim our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and where God's Word is preached and the sacraments are celebrated.
You don’t have to wear your Sunday best.
Nowadays, not everyone dresses up for church—just wear what you feel comfortable in.
You don’t have to know what to do.
Most churches have some common features that include: songs, announcements, a talk of about 20 minutes, offering, and prayers. Just follow the crowd and you’ll be fine. But if you like to plan ahead, you can always find the order of service for the upcoming Sunday posted here each Friday.
Singing out of tune is okay.
Congregations sing songs as a way of expressing their love for God. No one else is looking at you — join in if you want to or just listen to our beautiful choir. In the order of service you will see the hymn numbers, which are located in the red Voices United books in the pew rack. For more information on our Music Program click here.
You don’t need to pay.
You are our guest, and are not expected to give any money. Each service does include a voluntary offering, if you wish to contribute to the work of the church, but nobody will be upset (or even notice) if you don’t.
Is there parking / are we accessible?
Our parking lot is on Warren Road on the North side of St. Clair Avenue.
We are fully accessible. Wheelchair access is available at the north end of the parking lot off Warren Road or at our Dunvegan Road entrance. For elevator use please enter off Dunvegan Road, where free street parking is available. Ramps and an elevator are available in the building allowing you to move around freely while you're here.
Do we offer childcare?
Yes! Our well-equipped nursery provides care for children up to age four during services. The Nursery is staffed by our wonderful team of volunteers and runs from September to June. Sunday School classes are held for children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 during the 9:15 am service. For more information on Sunday School and Children and Youth Programming click here.
Are we friendly?
Absolutely! We have greeters and ushers at the door. Don’t be afraid of them. They are there to help you or just give you a smile. If you have any concerns or questions they are happy to assist you, or even give you a tour of the building if you wish!
I'm looking to be part of a community.
Our Connect Café (also referred to as Coffee Hour) is from 10:15am to 11:00am (between the two worship services). It's a great time to meet members of the church and other visitors.
Just remember: Church is not a building. The building is where we meet, but a church is a community of people who want to support each other. It’s not about rules – Christianity is not only about following rules but about relationships with God and others, with the presence of Jesus to guide us all through life.
