Human Sexuality
Following the 2019 General Assembly each Presbytery of the Presbyterian Chruch in Canada is being asked to approve or reject the following two remits:-

1. The Presbyterian Church in Canada holds two parallel definitions of marriage and recognizes that faithful, Holy Spirit filled, Christ centred, God honouring people can understand marriage as a covenant relationship between a man and a woman or as a covenant relationship between two adult persons. That congregations, sessions, ruling and teaching elders be granted liberty of conscience and action n on marriage. 

2. That congregations and presbyteries may call and ordain as ministers and elect and ordain as ruling elders LGBTQI persons (married or single) with the provision that liberty of conscience and action regarding participation in ordinations, inductions and installations be granted to ministers and ruling elders.

How would you vote and why?

This is the question facing teaching elders, ruling elders, sessions and congregatants throughout our denomination.

How do we prepare to answer such a question?

The Session have decided to make available resources to encoyrage the congregatiuon to read, reflect upon and submit questions, concerns, opinions so that we can work together as a community of faith to help each other going forward.

Mission Trip 2020


March 22 to 28, 2020 

Are you interested?


March 22 to 28, 2020 in Ensenada, Mexico and its surrounding community. Ensenada is 115 kms South of San Diego on the Pacific coast of Baja California. Once there, we will be working with YUGO Ministries (Youth Unlimited Gospel Outreach) at the Ensenada Outreach Centre (EOC). For more information on YUGO ministries, please visit

We are planning to fly to San Diego, and then drive to Ensenada. Once in Ensenada, we stay at a safe and enclosed campus that includes hot showers, free internet, a cafe, and dining facilities where we are served 3 meals a day. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know. We need to inform Yugo about it with anticipation.

What will we do?
At the core of this trip is our desire to live out the Christian faith by serving and loving those whose paths we cross. We hope to be involved in a construction project as well as serving the community through children’s work. The exact details of the week will not be finalized until closer to the time. The good news is that you don’t need to be a skilled construction worker – just willing to learn, serve, and work hard!

What should you do NOW?

 Are you interested, then PLEASE complete the following "Application Form" no later than MAY 31st 2019.
