We strive to make each Sunday meaningful with vibrant music, relevant ritual, and thoughtful reflections.


During the summer of 2019, we will not hold services in July or early August while completing renovations of our Sanctuary and foyer. We will hold three “summer” services (see below). Although child care (and Sunday School classes) will not be provided for these summer services, children are welcome to attend with their parent(s).

  • August 25th, 10:30 am - Rev. Ron Phares

  • September 1st, 10:30 am - Kerry Burke


Our church program year begins on September 8, 2019 and continues through June 21, 2020. Services begin in our Sanctuary at 10:30 am, and usually end at 11:45 am. Religious Education classes for children ages 4-12 are offered during our Sunday morning services, and free childcare is provided for children 3 and under. Contact our Church Office (604-926-1621 or info@northshoreunitarians.ca) for more information.

  • September 8th, 10:30am - “Water Communion” - Rev. Ron Phares. We will celebrate the beginning of the liturgical year with the traditional UU in-gathering ceremony of Water Communion. This is a ritualized celebration of community wherein each of you are invited
    to bring water (a cup or so?) from someplace you have been this year. It could be far flung, close to home, or from your tap. As the ceremony commences, you will be invited to pour your water into a common basin and name with one or two descriptive words the character of the experience around the retrieving the water (examples: “This water represents security.” or “This water is about overcoming obstacles.”). You are kindly asked to leave aside naming the actual location. Thus instead of a travelogue, we are highlighting character. The idea is that each and all of these individual characteristics mingle into one cohesive substance. Individual waters become one water. Individual lives contribute to and become one community. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the minister will use the water to convey a blessing of the community upon the community. It is a profound and invigorating way to begin our year together. May your quest for water be meaningful.

  • September 15th, 10:30 am - Rev. Ron Phares

  • September 22nd, 10:30 am - Rev. Ron Phares

  • September 29th, 10:30 am - Rev. Ron Phares & guests
