Phone: (250) 339-3966

Address: 250 Beach Drive, Comox, BC V9M 1P9   

Description: Comox United is an Affirming United Church, meaning that we belong to and ascribe to the vision of Affirm United, a GLBTQ affiliate of & advisor to the United Church General Counsel. An Affirming church is a place where individuals and families can feel confident that they will not be attacked from the pulpit, that their family milestones will be celebrated, and that people will welcome their stories and protect them from spiritual harm. Our interpretation of the scriptures puts love at the centre and is therefore completely congruent with building a community that celebrates the diversity of creation.
