At Armour Heights, we believe spiritual formation must be a family affair. We offer opportunities for Christian education and spiritual development for all ages which includes bible study, book study, book club, "Practicing Healing Prayer" and a church school curriculum and program that are unique and cutting edge. We also organize intergenerational gatherings and events at various times of the year. Our goal is to help form a deep consciousness of life as a journey with God above us, Christ beside us and the Holy Spirit within us. Developing this spiritual consciousness requires learning the scriptures and various spiritual practices that can integrate and internalize the learning in life-changing ways. It also involves engaging the world around us as servants of Christ and witnesses of his justice and love.
We have staff and volunteers trained and dedicated to work with each age and all ages together. We also welcome new ideas and facilitate new initiatives. For more info and more details, please contact us.
At Armour Heights, we believe that pastoral care, healing and wholeness are not just about the spirit, but about the body and mind also. Our holistic approach to health and wholeness focusses on the provision of various programs to engage all dimensions of our being as humans made in the image of God. Besides one on one visits, counselling and support in hospital or at home, we also offer programming aimed at sustaining and improving health through physical activity, education and friendship in community. Most recently, we have also partnered with Mosaic to provide expert consultation to seniors and their families seeking guidance in times of transition due to changing health realities.

At Armour Heights we believe building community has to be an intentional initiative welcoming diverse ideas and wide participation. And since Covid, we have committed ourselves to building a community that is fully hybrid. Through investments in technology and lots of learning, we have developed a vibrant online presence with various gathering opportunities throughout the week. We also offer the highest quality livestreaming of our Sunday worship service, various presentations and musical concerts. Our goal is to be fully accessible in all ways and we believe participation should be as much an online option as an in-person one. Check us out and let us know how we're doing so far.
At Armour Heights, we recognize our purpose and call to be the hands, feet, voice and heart of Christ for each other and in the world. This means that even as we care for each other, we must reach out into the world to care for the most vulnerable and challenge oppressive systems that promote racism and exclusion.
Our engagement and involvement includes support and volunteering with inner city missions serving the homeless, supportive housing, providing support for women seeking freedom from exploitation, providing subsidies for families with children to go to a day camp we run and an overnight camp we partner with. We are also involved in refugee sponsorship, and we have been growing our partnership with indigenous communities as we seek to learn and support healing and reconciliation projects. Finally, our welcome of marginalized groups includes advocacy for our 2SLGBTQI community. One of our great yearly highlights is marching as a congregation in the Toronto Pride parade.
