John Black Memorial United Church is a community of compassionate Christians who, individually or together, seek to live out God's grace and peace in our community and the world. We seek to live out our discipleship through participation in opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth,being Christian stewards in church and the world, responding to the needs of the community. Join our journey.

At John Black Memorial United Church, we welcome the inclusivity of all God’s people in all aspects of our lives together. We affirm, faithfully support, and embrace all people, including but not limited to people of all ages, genders, identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, racialized groups, political beliefs, economic circumstances, differing abilities and challenges, and all groups defined as family. We are committed to nurturing and being nurtured in a safe and accepting community as we celebrate the gifts that diversity brings to the life and work of a ministry where tradition is honoured, change is embraced, and injustice is challenged.


In this space, we acknowledge that we are on Treaty One Land, in the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, and Dakota peoples and in the heart of the Métis nation. May we live with respect on this land and live in peace and friendship with its peoples.


This is a place where human rights are respected and social justice is promoted. This space affirms, welcomes, supports and respects diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. 

This positive space contributes to the elimination of all forms of oppression.
