Welcome to our church. Glebe Road United is an oasis of quiet in the midst of hectic city life. We value the high quality of our music program, the participation of children and youth in worship, and the challenging sermons that make us think. All are welcomed to our worship services, but we are especially happy to see questioners, doubters and those who are tired of simplistic answers to life’s questions. A congregation for over 150 years, Glebe is a caring faith community for all generations.
What's Happening at Glebe
Remebrance Day Service - Sunday, November 9, 11:15 am
Remember the soldiers who have fallen in battle and those who are still with us. Come to this special morning service.
Carols by Candlelight - Sunday, December 7, 7:00 pm
It's one of the oldest traditions at Glebe. Join us for an old-fashioned carol sing in the sanctuary with brass ensemble, choir, and soloists at the annual Carols by Candlelight. This event is free of charge. Proceeds from donations go to neighbourhood outreach programs.
Harvest Moon Cabaret
T'was an evening of fun, good food, and wine. Thanks to all the volunteers who made the celebration on Saturday, October 25 possible, not least the mysterious Appalachian mountain man pictured below.
The Colin & Deb Made-Up Show
Thanks to all who came out to see the show on Friday Sept 19 in support of Glebe and a good time. Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath did a fantastic job entertaining us. To echo something Colin said during the Downton Abbey skit, it was poultry in motion. Special thanks too to Jim Clayton on electronic piano, and stage manager Peter Sherk.
Cynthia's Candidacy for Ministry
Wonderful news from Cynthia O'Connell. After a recent meeting with Toronto Conference, she is now an official candidate for ministry in the United Church.
Why I Go to Church...
"The Road to Glebe" by Cheryl Stenson
In 1996, my friend Deb and I were looking for a church. Not having attended church since our Sunday School years – which were not very close behind us – we felt the urge to find somewhere special where we could begin a new spiritual journey. Read story
