Royal York Road United Church (RYR)  is an enthusiastic community of over 500 members. Sunday Services are 10:30 - 11:30 AM.

Fine preaching, engaging children’s curriculum, adult study, and music are our hallmarks. Members and their children enjoy the opportunity to gather in faith to worship, plan outreach activities, study and socialize through a variety of opportunities.

We are conveniently located.  You can walk from nearby homes, drive and take accessible public transportation (map). An elevator provides easy access to the building. Our members greet you at all RYR entrances.  Please read more about us and join us on Sunday or at one of our special events. We warmly welcome you.

Royal York Road has a lot going on, take a look.


 In the joy of Royal York Road United’s wholehearted consent to becoming an Affirming Ministry, we held a  Service of Celebration on Sunday, January 11, 2015.
