Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ is an open and affirming Christian church with a focus on God’s justice in the world and living our faith in action.


We use inclusive language in scripture, liturgy and hymns, as we experience God as both Mother and Father, and also to acknowledge the equality of all people. As followers of the God of Life we acknowledge God’s call to non-violence as a basic tenet of our faith. We are ecumenical in outlook and background, respecting other faiths and traditions as paths to God. In response to God’s radical inclusivity, we welcome people of all races, ages, and sexual identities. Read more about our history and justice commitments, and also how you can get involved in the life of our community.


Regular worship services are held every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and last about an hour. While the worship follows a traditional Christian order that includes a call to worship, a confession, passing of the peace, a sermon, and hymns, it also includes creative and diverse elements within that liturgy. Worship services routinely feature a variety of music, including choral, folk, Latin@, protest songs, gospel, rock/pop and hiphop. Read more about our worship and what to expect when you come visit us.
