Circles of Companionship

Circles of Companionship

Caring for one another…. . . is a privilege and a responsibility.  As we do this, a sacred trust is bestowed that invites one into the intimacies and complexities of others’ lives.  Caring for One Another is a shared partnership of our minister, and the people of Sydenham Street United Church .


Helping HandsIn caring for one another at SSUC, our congregation is divided geographically into several neighbourhoods – Circles of Companionship. Each Circle has a unique life of its own, depending on its members . . . meeting to share food and conversation, visiting ill and aging members , sharing sorrow, visiting each other’s work-places – farms, theatre, businesses – and celebrating joys – all in the presence of the Spirit.
Pastoral Care


Relationships that are supportive, encouraging, faithful and fun are formed as members care for one another.
