Our Services

What if I'm not a Christian?
Veritas welcomes any and all people, not only people of any race, gender, sexuality or appearance but also people of any religion or no religion. We won't try to convert you. Instead we will respect you and your opinion, and welcome you with open arms. We only ask that you do the same in return and remember we are a Christian church.

Rob Apgar-Taylor

Rob Apgar-Taylor is the church planter with the vision that has become Veritas United Church of Christ. Rob is an ordained minister with 25 years of experience. After experiencing firsthand the exclusion and prejudice that accompanies being outside the traditional norm of Christianity, he began to sense God's call to form a Christian community of faith where all people were truly accepted and loved just as God made them to be. ​ With a Master of Divinity and a Doctor of Ministry with a concentration in spirituality, Pastor Rob sees Veritas as a much needed faith community where people from all walks of life can come together to grow in the love of God and the world around them.
