Who We Are

Mission Statement:  As members of Siloam United Church, we seek to be Christ to each other and God’s world.

A New Creed – The United Church of Canada

We are not alone,
we live in God’s world.
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
We trust in God.

We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God’s presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
We are not alone.

Thanks be to God.

Affirm United

In June of 2023, Siloam officially received designation as an Affirming Ministry.

As followers of Jesus and his message of love, inclusion, and justice, we affirm and celebrate the qualities, characteristics, and gifts of every human being including their age, race, ethnicity, gender identification, sexual orientation, abilities, marital status, family configuration, socioeconomic condition, and life experience.

As an Affirming Community of Faith, we believe everyone is a child of God and all God’s children belong. In fact, our church community is enriched by every person who becomes part of our community, and diversity is truly a blessing to celebrate.

B.Mus., B.Ed., OCT - Director Of Music

Blythe has served as music director for sixteen years with congregations in the Greater Toronto Area and London. She is a graduate of the University of Toronto where she earned her Bachelor of Music degree in piano and choral studies. She enjoys performing professionally, teaching privately, and composing/arranging. She is also an educator with the public school board, teaching the arts and French as a Second Language (FSL).

She is looking forward to finding ways to revive the joy and art of music-making in a world changed by the pandemic.

2017 Amalgamation – Arva & Siloam

 On June 25, 2017, Arva United Church and Siloam United Church amalgamated to become Siloam United Church at 1240 Fanshawe Road East in London.

Like Siloam, Arva also has a long history of ministry in the area dating back to 1857. The amalgamation will sustain both ministries as they continue the legacy of their founders.
