Eastminster is an Affirming Congregation in the United Church of Canada located on Toronto’s vibrant Danforth. This is a place where we nurture the soul, give thanks, celebrate life, care for creation, and love and serve others by uniting families and individuals in an accepting community of faith.
On Sunday, June 23 - 2.30pm to 5pm the Danforth Multifaith Community Walk will once again follow a ritual of pilgrimage to gather together the children of Abraham (Muslims, Jews and Christians) and a broad spectrum of interfaith communities to give witness to our shared belief that peace and harmony are possible. Come out and join us, everyone is welcome! https://www.facebook.com/danforthmultifaith www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3X83F0oT_A
