We are an Affirming Congregation

We, the people of Port Hope United Church, declare publicly our commitment to creating a community where all people are welcome regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, differing abilities, ethnic background or economic circumstance.

All persons are welcome to take part in every aspect of church life, including membership, leadership, celebrating life passages and marriage.

We celebrate the richness that diversity brings to our church, even as it challenges us.  We pray for God’s spirit to guide us as we work for reconciliation and justice for all persons in both church and society.
