A.O.T.S. Men’s Club

About Us Projects Contact Us National

AOTS is a men’s club that is affiliated with the United Church of Canada, but is open to all men on a broad ecumenical basis. AOTS aims to promote fellowship, deepen the spiritual life of men, and develop an effective program of Christian service.

AOTS was born in Vancouver in 1923. The first official club was formed that year by Dr. Herbert Riggs, a physician at Kerrisdale Methodist (now Ryerson United Church). The concert spread quickly to other churches and communities on the West Coast, then steadily across the country. By the mid-fifties, there were close to 10,000 members in Canada and Bermuda. For more information of the history of the AOTS movement, contact the National Office.

Currently, the National Association of AOTS Men’s Clubs is officially integrated into the structures of the United Church of Canada. There are over 60 active clubs meeting and serving in communities across the country from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland.
