In This Time of COVID-19, TSP’s Ministry Continues
Message from Colin Phillips, Chair of the TSP Church Board:
In the first verse of her hymn “Will Your Anchor Hold” Priscilla Owens asks ‘Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?’ TSP certainly is an anchor in the lives of many; a concrete expression of a faith in a loving and just God, a workplace with a decent wage, a place to make art and social change. Our ability to be that anchor depends largely on our ability to be a financially sustainable congregation that responds to the needs of our staff and partners.
The quietness of the building does not mean we stop being a community that worships God, seeks justice and cares for one another.

Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church seeks to be an inclusive and affirming Christian community — living out our faith individually and in our life together, engaging the world locally and globally for the sake of justice and peace, and striving to be a centre for faith, justice and the arts.
Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church is an Affirming congregation of the United Church of Canada.
We believe that all persons are equal before God; that the miracle of God’s creation is manifested through our many differences; and that racism is a sin and violates God’s desire for humanity.
As a Centre for Faith, Justice and the Arts (CFJA) we are committed to:
Trinity-St. Paul’s invests in fossil free and high impact market funds that are screened against ESG (environmental, social and governance) criteria. We also invest in a fund specializing in the environmental sector. We support investment in global development through Oikocredit, an international ecumenical development cooperative society. We were also members, for many years, in the Canadian Alternative Investment Cooperative (CAIC), to support community development and social housing. As CAIC has closed, we are now considering how to redeploy those funds.
