Welcome to the Unitarian Congregation of Guelph

 

The Unitarian Congregation of Guelph welcomes you, whoever you are, whatever your religious beliefs, abilities, ethnicities and sexual orientation.

We are an inclusive community, cultivating diversity, who come together to explore important life questions, support each other in living with purpose and meaning, and work toward peace and justice.

We are not bound by a set creed or dogma, but guided by Unitarian Universalist Principles and Sources.

 



Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge we are on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples. During our region’s rich indigenous history, these lands have been home to the Chonnonton peoples, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Métis. We express gratitude for the sharing of these lands. We also acknowledge the tragic history between first peoples and newcomers. We strive to be accountable by acknowledging this history and cultivating respect in our relationships with indigenous peoples and the land.

( 1:00pm - 2:30pm )
    CUC CONFERENCE
  • Online: This will be a virtual offering
  • Now more than ever we need to be grounded in connection, in hope, and in love. As the cycles of the seasons teach us the gifts of the dark as well as the light, we still need energy -- a spark -- to fuel living into our aspirations and values no matter the season, the struggle, or the celebration. This Sunday service will celebrate how our UU faith and our connections are crucial to sustaining and amplifying that spark.

    All are welcome to join us at our Sunday Worship Service. The Sunday service will be live-streamed on Zoom at http://bit.ly/NationalWorshipMay16 - Meeting ID: 885 0018 9706 Passcode: 595025 and will be closed captioned, and on the CUC's YouTube Channel.

    NEW HABITS OF HEART: SEEING FOR REAL
  • Away Game
  • Zoom On Line
  • This Away Game service was originally held by the ;Rev. Vanessa Rush Southern, who is the Senior Minister of The Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco.  The service was held on October 11, 2020 to mark Indigenous People's Day in the United States and addressed the question "what habit of the heart can we cultivate to see and know one another more fully?".

    Along with the service, there is a Ted Talk by novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie called "The Danger of the Single Story." It raises the question of the habits we fall into around the stories we tell about ourselves and one another and what gets lost in the telling of them.

    CALLING IN OUR BELOVED COMMUNITY
  • Melissa Horvath-Lucid & Carey McDonald
  • Zoom On Line
  • If we are to dismantle and confront racism, the conversation needs to go to the wider congregation. Given the size of our congregation as well, I believe this is more efficient than a separate group. What does inclusion look like? How does our current congregational culture hold diversity? What is the Widening Our Circle of Concern Initiative all about?
