  ABOUT US:  Church of the Master began as Bendale United in 1959, and the current name was adopted in 1962. Since then, we have served our members and the community of central Scarborough through meaningful worship, preaching and music; infant care, child and adult faith formation programs; pastoral care provided by both clergy and elders; active community outreach initiatives; and friendly hospitality and fellowship. In 1988, the first steps were taken to initiate a mixed non-profit housing project on our site, and in 1992 the Rev. Donald E.C. McLean Building was opened. This 48 unit complex has helped many people with subsidized housing since, and is an outreach effort of which we are proud. The interior of our Church was also renovated at the same time, leaving us with a sanctuary noted for both its intimacy and acoustics.   You are welcome and invited to be a part of our journey of discovery as we continue to seek God's guidance for our mission and ministry.
