“Water Communion: A Wish for a Better World.”
Rev. Jessica P. Rodela

Rabindranath Tagore writes: “The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.” Come celebrate our Multigenerational Ingathering Service, and the beginning of a year-long experiment exploring the practice of compassion through The Golden Rule. You are invited to bring a small sampling of water representing your summer memories as we mingle our experiences in this uniquely Unitarian ritual.

The service will be followed by a potluck.  Everyone is then welcome to a swimming party at Lyle Hallman pool.  (Bring food for potluck and bathing suit)

“Getting Sticky.”
Rev. Jessica P. Rodela

Without a common creed, what commitments connect us as a congregation? Do we have theological glue, rational paste, or a spiritual adhesive to bind us together?

“The Source of Our Compassion.”
Rev. Jessica P. Rodela

Daily, we are bombarded by global news that is terrifying. From what well might we draw strength to face the world boldly and dare hope for transformation?

"The Interdependent Web of Family Life."
UNITUNZ from the Unitarian Congregation of Guelph.

Inherent to family life is a multitude of interdependent connections: couples, mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so on. We all have family connections, some stronger than others, some healing and nurturing, others that may be damaging, even toxic. Some connections grow and develop with us, while others remain the same, dragging us back into old scripts and routines. Regardless of your family experiences, our family connections may be the longest running interdependent web we may ever experience in our lives.

Join the Unitarian Congregation of Guelph musical group, The Unitunz, for an exploration of our 7th Unitarian Universalist Principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” This will be an exploration in words and music, so bring your singing voices, clapping hands and stomping feet!



Welcome to our Congregation!

Photo by John SmirniosWe are a liberal religious community that draws inspiration from its Judeo-Christian heritage as well as the wisdom of world religions, our direct experience of transcending mystery and wonder, the words and deeds of prophetic women and men, humanist teachings, and the spiritual teachings of Earth-centred traditions. We include believers, doubters, and seekers; those who pray, those who meditate, and those who pour their souls out in song. We pledge to support one another in our individual searches for truth and meaning. Will you join us?

We gather for our regular Sunday services at 10:30 AM. Located in Kitchener, we draw people from all over the Waterloo region. Visitors are warmly welcomed.

In 2001 our congregation voted to become part of the Welcoming Congregation Program. This is a volunteer program for Unitarian Universalist congregations that want to take intentional steps to become more welcoming and inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We consider this to be important because of the specifically religious prejudices that have made LGBTQ people unwelcome in so many houses of worship. Please see Rev. Jessica P. Rodela’s powerful sermon on LGBTQ bullying, “When Rainbows Fade.”
