In response to the tragedy that happened in Orlando on Sunday June 12, 2016, and inspired by the response of many United Churches, including Halifax Presbytery, the Council has decided that in an act of solidarity with our lgbtq+ siblings, we would fly a pride flag for the month of July. Council also decided that we would show a similar act of solidarity with our Muslim siblings as soon as an appropriate flag is identified and procured.
"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another." - John 13:34 (NRSV)
Although we are happily flying a pride flag, we are not officially an Affirming Congregation. To lean more about the affirming process and Affirming congregations in the United Church of Canada visit the Affirm United.
