Join Us – We Have a Place for Everyone

Sydenham Street United Church (SSUC) offers many ways to become involved in congregational life—to meet people, share community and pursue personal interests.

Join us for worship

Join us for worship on Sunday mornings in the sanctuary or by livestream. At other times, visit our YouTube channel to catch the previous Sunday’s or other recent services.   Bulletins for these and other services are available to view here

If you are new, let us know by introducing yourself to the usher on your arrival at The Spire on Sunday morning. Alternatively, you may send an email to the church office and a congregational member will contact you to answer your questions.  Email the church office:

Join us in worship planning and delivery

The Worship Team plans Sunday services. The choir, lay scripture readers and ushers all contribute to faith and spiritual development. 

Join a small group

If you like to garden, read, watch movies, hike, knit or crochet, or help maintain internal space, there is a small group for you. Our small groups provide various opportunities to pursue personal interests in community with others. All of them offer social engagement and personal development.  The list of current small groups and contact information is available here

Join a ministry circle.  Share your gifts 

Sydenham Street United Church had established three ministry teams, called circles, to support the central priorities and activities of our church.  New members are welcome on each team.  

The three ministry circles are:

  • Engaging the Spirit focuses on Spiritual Development and Congregational Fellowship and includes Worship Planning  
  •  Art and Soul nurtures the performing arts in our congregation and broader community
  • Social Justice and Outreach supports people and programs in the community, working with people for people and a stronger community.  

Join an administrative committee

Committees include overseeing the church’s human resources management, financial administration, stewardship, and communications. With our commitment to be a radically welcoming church, we have a place for everyone!
