First Service in the New Building (Soft Opening)

Toronto Congregation will celebrate our first service in the new Centre Place church at 320 Richmond Street East #101 this Sunday, October 4, 2015. Church School is at 10:00 am, Communion Service at 11:00 am, Social Time at noon. 

We will finally be crossing the Jordan after nearly two years wandering since leaving our beloved church on Bathurst Street. However, this is a soft opening as we are still waiting on a number of items including carpet for the sanctuary, tile for the washrooms, lights for the light wall, furniture for the social room, and more. The good news is that we will have working washrooms and that's enough to march onward to Zion.

Friends and church members around Canada: If you're eager to see the new building, please feel free to visit us any Sunday over the course of the next few months. The sanctuary only seats about 50 and we'd love to have you when we can share with more 1x1 time.

The facility is near transit: Take the subway to Queen and the Queen Streetcar to Sherbourne. By car: Richmond has an exit from the DVP or via the Gardner exit at Jarvis. Street parking in the neighborhood is mostly free Sunday mornings prior to 1 pm and there is a pay Green-P ramp directly across Richmond from the church.
