Affirming

TSA is exploring becoming an Affirming Ministry. Affirming Ministries in the United Church of Canada are committed to supporting people of all gender identities and sexual orientations. On October 21 we will be voting on whether or not to join Affirm United, a network of ministries throughout Canada.

Below you will find more information about this process at TSA and some reflections from members of TSA on issues of gender identity and sexual orientation. For more information on the national network please visit www.affirmunited.ause.ca .
