Seeds of Hope in Bloom: Affirming Ministry in Grande Prairie

The First of its Kind

In 2020, St. Paul’s United Church in Grande Prairie, AB began its journey to become the first Affirming ministry north of Edmonton.

The United Church of Canada Foundation was thrilled to provide support through a Seeds of Hope grant, helping their community of faith convene learning events, in collaboration with local 2SLGBTQIA+ groups and Indigenous communities.

“Journey to Affirming: Come Learn with Us” has been transformative.

We’ve been very excited to share this brand-new video, the story of their Journey to Affirming, and could think of no better day to debut it than PIE Day!

To our friends at St. Paul’s, thank you for helping to shine God’s radical love. Your courage is life-changing and life-giving. Your new Affirming ministry in Grande Prairie gives hope to so many.

Seeds of Hope Grants Available

Does your community of faith, camp, education centre (or another group) see a need in that you can fill in your congregation or community like St. Paul’s United Church did? A Seeds of Hope grant can help make it a reality!
