On this day, Port Nelson celebrated becoming an Affirming Ministry of the United Church of Canada. As the only Affirming congregation in Burlington, Port Nelson has made a public commitment to work for the full inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as affirming the variety of people who are part of God´s loving creation.

Affirm Statement

We affirm, include, and celebrate people of every age, race, belief, culture, ability, income level, family configuration, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation in the life and ministry of Port Nelson. As followers of Jesus we believe that we are part of the body of Christ. The apostle Paul said that ‘the body does not consist of one member but of many´ and all are indispensable. (1 Corinthians 12:14, 22-26)
