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.

We have been recognized as a Welcoming Congregation.

So if you are searching for a spiritual community where there is freedom of religious thought, spiritual growth, hope and inspiration, welcome!


 


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 (or Attawandaron), 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.

Sunday, Apr. 12, 2020
( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    RETURNING TO LIFE
  • Peter Boullata
  • As Unitarian Universalists we aspire to live in harmony with the earth and its cycles. The circle of birth, growth, death, decay, and new life might give us pause—what might a death mean in this cycle of regeneration?


Sunday, Apr. 19, 2020
( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    THE POWER OF INTER-GENERATIONAL COMMUNITY
  • Mel Horvath-Lucid & Diana Smith
  • We often hear about stepping outside ourselves, but rarely do we hear about stepping outside of our generation, as a means of growth and connection. Join us for a morning of stories, song and community, as we listen to people speak about the impact of inter-generational relationships in their lives. Stay for a community potluck lunch, and intergenerational activities and chalice circle facilitated by Mel and Diana, as you intentionally step outside of your generation.


Sunday, Apr. 26, 2020
( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    Making Meaning & Art from Loss & Grief
  • Nicole Fantin
  • How do we carry, hold and ultimately embrace challenging and painful encounters in our lives?What does it look like and feel like when we are able to move through with empathy and compassion? What insights and gifts might powerful experiences like that offer us, if we have the necessary support? Along this line, Nicole has some tangible and tender examples to share with us, as well as guiding us to connect with our own experiences.

    Nicole Fantin is an Art Therapist at Hospice Wellington.
