Welcome

We are a welcoming community, energized by the diversity of beliefs, identity, and experience that each person brings. We encourage our children’s curiosity and nurture their open and loving nature.

We gather to explore sacred mysteries, to sing of our longings and our blessings, to be still and listen. Strengthened in spiritual growth, supported in diverse community, we strive to transform ourselves and heal our world through compassionate action.

The best way to get to know us is to come to one of our Sunday services and say hello – or just take a look. We gather every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. – everyone is welcome! Here are directions to our church. Our services are led by Reverends Shana and Melora Lynngood.

We are often able to facilitate ride sharing by car – please phone the office at 250-744-2665 by Thursday morning if you need a ride to church.

Join us for one of our monthly Community Dinners. Everyone is invited. We gather once a month in a family-friendly setting on the second Friday of every month from September to June.

You are welcome to visit our virtual ‘candle lighting room.’ Take a moment to pause, breathe deeply, and hold gently whatever is in your heart. Or come to the church and experience walking our labyrinth the ancient symbol which relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral in a meandering by purposeful path, representing a journey to our own centre and back out into the world.

We are Unitarian Universalists – and you may be too! Read more about the principles and ethos that guide us. Curious about what religion (if any) you practice…or ought to consider practicing? Here’s an online quiz.
