Welcome home.

Our mission is to build bridges with a vibrant spirituality that transforms lives and transforms the world.

Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto is the spiritual home to a diverse and progressive community of faith. We are rooted in the teachings and spiritual practices of Christianity. We also respect the rich wisdom of other faith traditions. We believe in a relevant and forward-thinking spirituality. We are proud to be a congregation serving people with assorted beliefs, backgrounds and sexual identities. From our origins serving gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people, we have become an inclusive and affirming congregation that actively welcomes all people. We are called to build bridges that transform lives and transform our world. We are called to welcome others into the experience of a spirituality that is vibrant, inclusive and progressive. We are called to generously share our time, talents and resources. We are called to be beacons of faith, freedom and justice here and around the world.

Our vision is to be Canada’s leading progressive diverse community of faith.

MCC Toronto is a growing congregation. As we welcome all people we will grow in diversity. We are working towards building new ministries with youth, young adults, seniors and young families with children. We will be a persuasive advocate for social justice and human rights around the world. We will be a resource to other congregations. We will be Canada’s leading progressive Christian community of faith.

Refugee and Immigration Project

Since 2005, MCC Toronto volunteers have been hosting monthly LGBT support group meetings with hundreds having attended. Approximately 80-90% have been successfully accepted into Canada. The Refugee and Immigration Project will work in cooperation and collaboration with over 32 other organizations and agencies to achieve its purpose and objectives. This ministry, started by a group of volunteers, began with a peer support group assisting inland refugee claimants integrate into the LGBT community in Toronto. Inland claimants are those who come to Canada and make a claim at an Immigration office in Canada seeking Canada’s protection as they are in fear of persecution in their home country. They will be scheduled to have a hearing at Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board for that purpose. Since that time we have helped over 700 refugee claimants on their spiritual path by demonstrating to them that they are loved and are a valued member of society just the way they were created.
