Services and Times
Sunday, 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
We gather in Scarborough every Sunday morning. The program begins at 10:30 and it usually runs between 75 and 90 minutes. Following the gathering is an opportunity for conversation and refreshments. Interesting conversations are always on the go in there so plan to be with us for, say, two hours, including the service.
Visitor's and Traveller's Lunch - First Sunday of Every Month
Many West Hill supporters live outside our traditional cachement area. We are also fortunate to have many visitors interested in seeing how we "do" theologically barrier-free church. Some visit from just around the corner; others come from further afield and make a day of it. And, periodically, we have visitors from as far away as Australia. Our Visitor's and Traveller's lunches offer a bit of hospitality before your return home after your visit. Join us the first Sunday of every month, after the service, whether you're near or far, a regular or someone new. All are welcome.
Our Sunday gatherings might be called traditional in style - we sit in pews (although we're slowly switching these out for chairs!), we sing, we share concerns and celebrations, we listen to what many might call "sermons" - but what you'll hear is radically different than what you'd find in most Sunday church services. And, we're casual about how we do what we do so many don't feel the need to dress up.
Kids enjoy being with Caley Oliveira, our paid child minder. Caley is always accompanied by at least one other person, both of whom have met the conditions for responsible child care. Sometimes there is one child, sometimes a roomfull. Either way, Caley makes parents feel comfortable and kids of all ages feel welcome. Child minding is regularly available during the Sunday program beginning at 10:15.
There are also resources for kids who want to stay with their parents. Look for a table with materials for their quiet entertainment as you enter the Gathering Hall.
Accessibility and Parking
Our building is usually fully accessible. A ramp provides access from the parking lot to the first floor and an elevator is available for programs happening in the basement.
There is plenty of parking accessible from both Orchard Park Drive and Kingston Road.
West West Hill - Etobicoke
Third Sunday of Every Month, 4:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
We gather in Etobicoke - 84 Old Burnhamthorpe Road - on the third Sunday of every month for a meal and conversation. The meal is set up between 4:30 and 5, with potluck dishes brought by participants. After welcoming one another, we eat and then share in a prepared activity or conversation.
This is a very informal setting and gathering. You are welcome to "come as you are." First timers are not required to bring food to share. We'll have plenty to go around.
At this time, we do not have provision for child minding at our Etobicoke site.
Accessibility and Parking
The building we use is fully accessible and has plenty of parking.
