Facilities

Our congregation’s vision is to be a resource for the community, to support lifelong learning, nurture health and well-being, and seek justice in the world. Parkdale United Church is a dynamic centre for learning, community enrichment, personal growth, and the arts. We welcome community groups, agencies, and health and education practitioners to use our beautiful spaces for meetings, retreats, and other events.
