Sunday Services


Services are held every Sunday morning at 10:30 am (unless noted), followed by coffee. Services are in English with some French. Come for an hour of beautiful music, meditation and a thought-provoking sermon from our minister, Rev. Diane Rollert.

 It's a great way to kick-start the week with a calm state of mind. We offer loving caregivers in our nursery and wide-ranging programs for children and youth during the service.

Upcoming Worship Services

All services start at 10:30 am (unless noted) with childcare available.

By This We Live

Nicoline Guerrier
Music by Maider Martineau and Sandra Hunt
There’s a simple song we’ve embraced in our tradition. Its words remind us, “From you I receive, to you I give, together we share, and from this we live.” How does this dance of giving and receiving, central to all our lives, affirm and reinforce our essential interdependence?

The Antidote to Perfectionism

Danielle Webber
Music by Maider Martineau and Louise Halperin
How can interdependence encourage us to move away from the concept of perfectionism: a need to be all things to all people, to constantly have everything under control, to be self-critical and to have an all-or-nothing approach to life? Is it possible to step away from the need to be perfect, and realize the resources all around us?

Love and Justice

Danielle Webber
Music by Maider Martineau
In May 2016, at the Canadian Unitarian Council’s Annual General Meeting , a motion was passed to adopt the following vision statement: “As Canadian Unitarian Universalists, we envision a world in which our interdependence calls us to love and justice.” What does this vision statement ask of us? How are we expected to live this into the future of our world, and how will we ensure that Unitarian Universalism’s future is bright and focused?

What do we do here? Is it worship?

Several years ago, Rev. Rollert and the congregation explored a series of questions regarding “Wounded Words” – the words of religion that have wounded us or may have been wounded or co-opted by others.  As we talked about the word “Worship” she asked us this question: “What do we do here?”

Here’s the answer that came from the congregation:

What do we do here?
We gather together to play with ideas of the world and our place in it,
To celebrate, discuss, care, wonder and act,
To reconnect with what is important in life,
To reflect upon love, sorrow, joy, conflict, peace, complexity, and diversity,
To meet kindred souls for a special pause from the mundane,
To have our hearts and minds stretched and to be comforted that we are not alone,
To move further towards the heart’s truth,
To be grateful,
To be curious,
To search,
To commune,
To spend an hour of oneness in the mystery of “sacred stillness”....
To inspire and let ourselves be inspired,
To acknowledge the mystery of our short lives, and to admit that we haven’t got it all figured out.

We hold space.  We hold hearts.  We come together because things of worth are worth gathering for.
