CFRUC’s peace pole
Every Tuesday Tuesday afternoon between 5:15 and 5:45 we are gathering to offer prayers for peace. Weather permitting, we will gather around the peace pole. Otherwise we will meet in the sanctuary. If you can’t join us in person, we invite you to observe this as a prayer time wherever you might happen to be.
Peace Poles are an iconic symbol of, May Peace Prevail On Earth International, founded in Japan over fifty years ago. Over the decades, Peace Poles which carry the message May Peace Prevail On Earth have been planted by supporters the world over in every region and continent on earth. It is estimated that there are over 200,000 Peace Poles in the world on every continent which have been planted over many decades.

CFRUC is a centre for spirituality and the arts in this community – a place where community can grow, gather and flourish.
The foundation of our church and congregation is service. We achieve this through community programming, supports to the arts and by participating in broader social justice initiatives. Our building and grounds provide a welcoming gathering space for community to connect, learn and enjoy the arts.
On average yearly, we host more than 10,000 attendees at public events. Our church facilities can accommodate a variety of functions including meetings, workshops and concerts. Wheelchair accessible spaces are available. We have added recording and live streaming capabilities to what we offer.
We maintain a Christian education program for children and youth. At the same time we look beyond our walls to support the needs of the children in our neighborhood. Along with our arts partners, we provide enrichment programming to children and youth. The Fort Rouge Child Care Centre is located in our building.
We believe in the positive impact of the arts and this message is central to our purpose. We provide arts programming and are a venue for musical, visual, literary, and performing arts events. Artfest is our lively annual festival celebration of the arts.
We have a vibrant 55 plus presence in our faith community – energized, action-oriented and engaged. Community-focused programming celebrates and connects seniors. Join a music class, walking group or simply visit us for coffee and socializing. We offer opportunities to explore the arts, engage in a variety of workshops, or become a volunteer!
We believe to be faithful is to be engaged with the world around us, to live with respect in Creation, to love and serve others and to seek justice and resist evil. As we live out this faith, we have found a variety of ways to reach out to support families, seniors and many arts and choral groups.
Reverend Marc Whitehead offers worship online and in person, if health regulations permit, every Sunday at 10:30 am. We interpret the Bible seriously but not literally and seek the Spirit in everyday life. We love music at CFRUC and our services are enlivened under Music Director Michael Cutler. We also offer special services such as Christmas Eve and Good Friday, as well as weddings, funerals & baptisms.
