INCLUSION

In the same way that Jesus reached out to all people, our faith community is called to be open and inclusive.

As congregations residing on treaty 7 lands, we continue to seek ways to be inclusive of all people of the Bow Valley,
regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, cultural background, education level, mobility challenges… ALL people!
We are delighted that both Ralph Connor and Rundle Memorial United Church, Banff, are Affirming Ministries.
