Right Relations Ministry

The Hillhurst United Church Right Relations Ministry is a dynamic group of people actively striving to build respectful relationships with First Nations, Metis and Inuit people and live out the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.


Our Right Relations Lead, Tony Snow, and partnerships with other churches and community members, help us live out these values in our community and in the world.



The Right Relations Circle meets the fourth Tuesday of each month for an evening of conversation, connection and friendship. Everyone is welcome, whether they attend Hillhurst United Church or not. For information about our upcoming meetings, click here.


Over the past few years the Right Relations Circle has:

  • Brought Indigenous leaders Harlan Pruden and Rev. Ray Aldred to Hillhurst United Church to lead circle discussions on right relations and reconciliation

  • Hosted a variety of valued guest speakers to our monthly circles

  • Invited the congregation to participate in special events, including marches, museum visits and shows.

  • Volunteered with Walking With Our Sisters commemorative art installation at Mount Royal University.

  • Welcomed guests of Metis and Cree background who taught, drummed and shared their learnings

  • Hosted a KAIROS blanket exercise

  • Screened documentaries

  • Kept the community up-to-date on upcoming right relations activities


The Right Relations Ministry is pleased to host the Urban Indigenous Circle (UIC), a Spiritual Home for Indigenous people seeking wholeness in the urban environment. All Indigenous people are invited to gather to discuss and practice their cultural teachings and ceremonies at this monthly gathering led by Tony Snow in collaboration with Elders from Morley, McDougall United Church, and St. Andrew's Regional Ministries.
