Curious about Unitarian Universalism and our Congregation at 1st Unitarian?


Sunday morning services are at 10:30 am. Join us for spiritual reflection and inspiration that helps us navigate the challenges of daily life. You can also listen to a past service if you missed one.


Some people are from a background in which they feel they should “dress up” for worship. Others believe it most important to “come as they are”. Please dress however you are comfortable. What’s most important is that you feel at home.


We have lots of on site parking available, including several accessible spaces for those with mobility concerns. There is plenty of space for you!


We are Unitarian Universalists. As a Welcoming Congregation, we celebrate our diversity! With no set creed that members must believe, we share a set of values and support one another on our spiritual journeys. We draw from many sources of inspiration including all of the world’s great religious traditions, poetry, podcasts, music, and contemporary writings. We are united in our efforts to live as the best versions of ourselves and to do all we can to make the world a more just, sustainable, and compassionate place for all. Our shared values are best expressed in our 8 Principles.


We look forward to welcoming your children! Being a multigenerational community is important to us. We offer families lots of options. Children are welcome to join the service for the first 15 minutes every Sunday to take part in our Time for All Ages (a story or conversation with the kids) and then head off to their programs or to childcare. Childcare is available for the youngest so parents can attend or return to the service without their children if they prefer. The Lion Lounge is also available for families that want to stay together throughout the morning – it’s an informal space for watching the service on a screen in a room adjacent to the sanctuary if your little one needs more space to be able to move and make noise during the service. Programs that explore a wide range of spiritual topics are also offered for elementary and middle school age groups, as well as for youth



You will be greeted in the entryway where you can get a nametag (if you want one) and ask any questions. Our greeters are always happy to help you find your way and warmly welcome you to the space.


After the service, join us for coffee, tea, and goodies. It’s a great place to meet and chat and get to know some members of the congregation.


Accessible seating is easily available. We video broadcast our service in the Lion Hall, which we call the Lion Lounge on Sunday mornings. You can also choose to join us virtually or via Livestream on Facebook.


The church is located at 5575 West Saanich Road, Victoria, BC, across the street from the Red Barn Market.
