The Ismaili Centre

The Ismaili Centre, Toronto is situated, together with the Aga Khan Museum, within a 6.8-hectare landscaped park, a new space for the public that showcases the work of three renowned architects. Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki designed the Aga Khan Museum, while Indian architect Charles Correa designed the Ismaili Centre. The Park, which features a formal garden, was designed by architect Vladimir Djurovic of Lebanon. The Canadian firm Moriyama & Teshima are the architects for the entire project and responsible for integrating all aspects of the project.

The Ismaili Centre includes a place of prayer (Jamatkhana) for the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslim community as well as spaces for social, educational and cultural activities. The buildings and Park represent His Highness the Aga Khan’s longstanding relationship with Canada and his appreciation for the country’s commitment to pluralism and cultural diversity.

Everyone is welcome at the Lord’s Table and all baptized Christians are invited to receive the sacrament of bread and wine.

Donway Covenant United Church

We’re a group of people with tender hearts, open minds, and a desire to serve Jesus’ vision of hope, love and justice for all in God’s Creation.  Most of us are still members of the original group which founded our church, but over the years, Don Mills has gradually welcomed in people from all over the world, and so has our church.  At one Pentecost celebration five years ago, we discovered that there were over 30 different languages spoken by members of our congregation.  As time has gone by, our understanding of God, theology, and community has changed, and is still changing.  We try to deal openly with all people, sometimes we struggle, but always we seek a common good.

Jubilee United Church

Jubilee United Church was created by the coming together of Bethesda, Donminster and Victoria Village, and most recently, St. John’s  United Churches.   Embracing the gifts of these congregations and the many individuals who have joined our community since 2000, we continue to grow. We acknowledge the sacred land upon which Jubilee United Church stands. People have been on this land for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the “Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant”, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
