Varsity Acres is a community church, but we are also part of a church body called the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
The Presbyerian Church in Canada has released a letter issued by the current and former Moderators addressing the legacy of the residential school system and the PCC's complicity in that legacy. The letter can be found by clicking the link below.
At Varsity Acres, we desire to work with the indigenous community, taking our lead from them, to address the horrible wrongs of the past, to support their healing and empowerment, and to seek a just and reconciled future. At the present time, we join with them in sorrow and grief for the losses suffered by generations of our first peoples.
The Heart Garden, at our main entrance, was planted by the children of VAPC in 2015 as a memorial to the survivors of the residential school system and their families
