"The GOLDMINE of our FUUture."
Russell Booth  
          

"Goldmine" is a intense week-long UU leadership training for youth across Canada and the U.S., where youth from all walks of life are provided with training in worship leading, community building, and other leadership skills that inspire them to do amazing things for our community and our world. I attended this conference, and will share some of the experiences and wisdom that I gained from the event. The future of Unitarian Universalism lies in the hands of our youth and young adults, and although some may consider this a dreadful prospect, I see them bringing hope and prosperity to the future of this community. Service Leader:  Charlotte Innerd.

Our sixth source celebrates the earth and the cycles of nature. It offers us the opportunity to connect with the deeper narratives that arise out of the seasons and the year. In this talk, we will discuss the ways in which earth-based practices have helped to foster our deeper connections to nature through our exploration of archetype and story.  Service Leaders: Susan Deefholts & Catherine Lizotte.

"What Difference Does It Make?"
Janis Collins

We are an intentional, covenantal community. What is unique about us and what difference does that make? Worship Associate:  Allan Grosse.

Janis was introduced to Unitarian Universalism 16 years ago, when multiple newly-met acquaintances would tell her “You need to check out those Unitarians. You sound just like them.” She’s been one of those Unitarians ever since.

Welcome to our Congregation!


 Closing the service with a song. 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.”
