Refugee Fund Update

Glebe is partnering with Northlea United Church to bring a Hazara Afghan family of nine to Canada. In order for this to be feasible Glebe is seeking out other partners to help raise the funds. $96,000 is needed to bring this family to Canada to support them financially for a year. We have raised in conjunction with Northlea and other individual contributors $41,600 or 43% of the total needed.

We’ll have lots to choose from

Building God’s Beloved Community

If you are new or newish to the Christian faith, interested in learning more about membership in The United Church of Canada or if you want to re-discover the faith you grew up with, think about joining our book study beginning this Fall. We will be reading “Building God’s Beloved Community: Discipleship in The United Church of Canada.” This book was written primarily with those new to the church in mind (the language is very accessible) yet is still relevant for wherever you are in your faith journey. The book features contributions from a wide theological and cultural spectrum within The United Church of Canada.
