Standing at the crossroads of the heart of the city — for almost 140 years — the Redeemer has been a place of celebration, refuge, learning, and worship, for many generations of Jesus’ followers.
Sitting on the traditional lands of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississauga peoples of the New Credit, our beautiful building connects us to the rich heritage of our ever-changing city while also drawing us deeper into the roots of our Anglican tradition. Just as the streetscape around us has evolved over the years, our building has changed to reflect the growing, vibrant and progressive Christian community found at the Redeemer today.
We are at the very beginning of our life with Jesus and we are deeply steeped in a life complicated by faith.
However, the Redeemer is far more than just a building. We come from a variety of faith traditions (and sometime no faith tradition at all), and we like it that way. We are students, workers, retired. We are the homeless. We are not limited by sexual orientation, gender identity or personal history. We are at the very beginning of our life with Jesus and we are deeply steeped in a life complicated by faith. We open our doors to welcome the sojourner, the weary, the yearning, and the seeking. We come together to worship God and to learn about Jesus, and how all of this might just transform our lives.

Guided by the heart of Jesus, we’re looking hard for ways we might discover a mutual transformation at the crossroads of our neighbourhood. Opportunities to share love, peace and justice — from the corner of Avenue and Bloor — to the places of government and industry, arts and culture, all right down the street.
We’re looking at the city with new eyes.
Ready to hear what God might have to speak.
