Young adult programming includes environmental awareness, social issues and spiritual activities which deepen faith and build community. Pastoral care is provided. Social justice issues through education, advocacy and acts of service, including a focuson reconciliation with First Nations peoples. The Refugee Outreach Program sponsors refugees and partners with other groups interested (...) in sponsoring and supporting refugees and provides problem-solving for individuals and families. A mid-week drop-in provides hospitality in a safe space for the broader community.

As part of the church's commitment to reconvillation with the First Nations peoples, in 2017 we initiated a program to bring indigenous teenagers together with non-indigenous teenages and send them on a week long outdoor adventure together. We have invited City Shul (a reform Jewish congregation) to move in to our building at 300 Bloor Street West and make it their place of worship. In September 2017 the building became both a United Church church and a Jewish Synagogue.
