Welcome to our Congregation!


 We 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. Please follow us on Facebook to be notified of additional updates. 


Grand River Unitarian Congregation is a proud member of the Canadian Unitarian Council's Welcoming Congregation Program. We warmly welcome and include people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. For more information, please visit Our History and scroll down midway to the Welcoming Congregation logo.
