Black History Month

Black History Month 2022

The month of February each year is an opportunity for us to understand Black histories, going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight Black excellence. In addition, to spotlighting excellence, we celebrate the legacy, history, and achievements that Canadians of African descent have made, and continue to make. We recognize our commitment to equal rights, opportunity, and freedom from discrimination in the GTA and across Canada. The theme for 2022’s year’s celebration was Black Health and Wellness.

On February 27, 2022 our Praise worship service recognized and celebrated our Black heritage.
