Our community provides a spiritual home for people from many different backgrounds, ages and life experiences. Our spirits are nourished by regular worship, prayer, study of the Bible, service, and times of sharing and fellowship. The community is a place of laughter and joy; but it is also a place to mourn and be comforted. We strive to be an inclusive community that welcomes and cares for all people.
To love is at the heart of what it means to be a Christian. Jesus told his followers to love God with all their hearts, souls, mind and strength; and to love their neighbours as they loved themselves. Love is not always easy–it involves dedication, forgiveness, self-sacrifice and service. We see all of these qualities in the life of Jesus.
We believe that God’s Spirit guides and unites Jesus’ followers. The presence of God’s Spirit is seen in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, loyalty, gentleness, and self-control. These are the marks of a Christian.
Ultimately, our common bond is our belief in God. We do not claim to know all that there is to know about God, but we are dedicated to a life and a worldview that finds its foundation in the overwhelming love and grace of God.
We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, one of the historic Protestant denominations in our country. We are, however, an ecumenically open congregation who welcomes people from all denominational backgrounds.
You are always welcome at Morningside-High Park. Whether it is for worship, Bible study, service or prayer, we hope that you will find the peace of Christ in this community.
We are here to love and serve God, you, and the world.
