Welcome to the Diocese of Toronto

Welcome to the Diocese of Toronto

We are more than 200 church communities of all shapes and sizes in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. We serve Christ's mission through compassionate service, intelligent faith and Godly worship.

Can anyone go to church?

Yes, absolutely! It can be intimidating to walk in the doors of a church, especially if you’ve never gone to church or it’s been a long time. But rest assured, you are very welcome at any of our churches.

In most churches, our main opportunity to gather together is the Sunday morning worship service. Many churches also have different kinds of services and events during the week. You don’t have to go to church on Sunday morning to attend these other activities.

If you want to learn more about a church, you can visit its website or call its office to find out what you can expect. Many churches also post updates, photos and videos from their own Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. You can also check out our events calendar to see what’s happening around the diocese!

What happens after Easter?

Forty days after Easter, we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension, which commemorates Jesus’ ascension into heaven. Ten days later, or 50 days after Easter, Pentecost celebrates the Holy Spirit coming to Jesus’ early followers. It’s often seen as the beginning of the Christian church, because Jesus’ disciples went out into the street and spoke with people in many different languages. You can read about the events of Pentecost in the Bible.
