The purposes of the First Unitarian Church of Victoria are:
- to promote Unitarianism in the area of Greater Victoria;
- to teach the Unitarian Principles to members, youth, children and the public at large and to encourage community participation that reflects these Principles;
- to act in furtherance of these Principles and to cooperate with like-minded individuals and organizations in the furtherance of these Principles and on mutual concerns for the benefit of the community on Vancouver Island, in Canada and in the world
- to provide a place of worship, contemplation, discernment, music, celebration, fellowship and meeting for Unitarians and others.
The Covenant of Good Relations is a guide for respectful communication and ethical behavior in our congregational activities. It provides a framework for putting our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles into practice.
Each of us will take responsibility for our personal well-being and show generosity of spirit to others’ needs and contributions.
Together we will strive to create a healthy spiritual community in which the contribution of each person is valued.
We will be welcoming to all members, friends of the congregation, children and youth regardless of gender identity, race, sexual orientation or age, and participate in congregational life with enthusiasm and joy.
We believe in participatory decision-making and respect the outcome of this democratic process. Covenant of Good Relations
