100th Anniversary

June 10, 2025, will mark the United Church’s 100th anniversary—an opportunity to honour our past and look to the future!

The theme for the Centennial is Deep, Bold, Daring. One of the first “united” churches in the world, from its formation the United Church has been rooted in

Deep Spirituality
The words of Jesus’ prayer that the disciples be one (John 17:21)

Bold Discipleship
The belief that what unites us is stronger than our differences

Daring Justice
The desire to live out the gospel call to love and justice in Canada and around the world

Deep Spirituality, Bold Discipleship, Daring Justice with three overlapping petals in Crest colours
