A League of Their Own

What lessons does the movie A League of Their Own have for us today? Using the TV series as a springboard, we’ll reflect on the journey of the WWII All-American professional women’s baseball league. Wear your baseball hats and bring popcorn!

Renewing our Faith

 The language of covenant is one of the foundational tenets of who we are as Unitarian Universalists. Our covenant is our container that allows us to come into this community and be transformed by its love and grace. We live out our living tradition when we take the time to renew our covenant with each other.

Wade in the Water

When we confront our biases and projections about how the world moves and operates, we’re wading into troubled waters. This service explores how we can wade into these troubled waters with grace and compassion for ourselves and our loved ones.

High Hopes

When we look at the world around us, it can be hard to believe in the goodness that is all around us! Join Rev. Samaya for an exploration of Paulo Nutini’s song, High Hopes, that addresses this very thing.

The Dance

The poet Oriah Mountain Dreamer asks what it means to let go and say yes to life! Together we’ll explore this poem and its message to us to live with intention in the coming year.

Out of the Flames

Out of the Flames – Out of the flames of 2022 we rise. We rise for courage and conviction knowing that being on the side of love and justice is who we are. Out of the flames we rise with hope in our hearts to help heal a broken world. Out of the flames we rise with love in our hearts that celebrates our shared humanity. Join us for a fire communion service.

Christmas Morning Stories, Songs, and Scripture

Join the four Metro Vancouver UU Congregations as you ease into the holiday remembering its meaning and beauty amidst all the activity. Music and scripture readings will be shared by each congregation. You can take in the service from the comfort of your home (still in your jammies if you wish). Join us for a light-hearted family service.

And it Came to Pass – Christmas Eve

Join us at 7:00 pm for our online Christmas Eve service. In our lessons and carols service, we’ll take
time to remember the story of old, the birth of Jesus, and what it means for our lives today.

Solstice Ritual

For over thousands of years people have gathered on the eve of Winter Solstice to celebrate the rebirth of the sun. Today we gather to be nurtured and held during the longest night and begin to look forward to the light returning. From out of the darkness and cold, light and hope return. Join us as we slow down, sit in silence together and rest when the wheel turns. We welcome everyone to our service. Join us at 3:30 pm for carol singing followed by our annual Solstice ritual and labyrinth walk at 4:00 pm to honour the gifts of the night and to celebrate the return of the light. We meet at Kwomais Park, 1367 128th St, Surrey.
