The Presbytery is the Court of the Church which oversees the business of the communities of faith within its boundaries, and assists those communities of faith in carrying out the mission of The United Church of Canada.
The United Church of Canada Manual describes the role and responsibilities of the Presbytery. Presbyters include lay representatives elected by their congregation and Ministry Personnel, including retired ministers, serving within the boundaries of the Presbytery. Presbyters and staff deployed to the Presbytery by Toronto Conference are responsible for the governance, administration and program related work within the Presbytery.
Toronto Southeast is one of 4 Presbyteries within Toronto Conference. For a description of our organization and policies see our Presbytery Handbook.
Toronto Southeast Presbytery includes 52 Pastoral Charges, one mission unit and one Community Ministry.
Toronto Southeast Presbytery is called to enable and support good, faithful and healthy communities of faith within our member Pastoral Charges and to provide opportunities for cross-congregational initiatives where individuals from Congregations with shared calls to specific ministries may work together.
The Presbytery will be a place where mutual support and encouragement are found, collegiality is nurtured, Congregations learn with each other, bonds of shared ministry are forged, and lively, affirming worship is made, while at the same time attending to the administrative responsibilities of personnel and property and engaging in public witness and program activities.
