Past Events

Here are some of the Sunday Services we've had in the past - to give you an idea of the neat places we've been and special things that we do!

September 13th, 2015: Our Annual Pride Service with Peter Scales

Please join Peter as he speaks about his service entitled, “From Stonewall to Pride.”  Gays and lesbians were widely feared and openly persecuted in North America until recent historical times. How did a riot outside a gay bar, and an international medical crisis, lead Canadians of all affections to openly celebrate their GLBT neighbours in Pride parades?

September 6th, 2015: What is it to be a Community of Promise? by Amanda Tarling

As we meet again after our summer break our topic is “What is it to be a community of Promise?.” There is power in a promise and it is a foundation of being a Unitarian. We keep our seven principles and we make commitments. As we start this new year of Sunday Services what commitments do we need to renew to ourselves and our community. We will explore promises as part of our journey as a faith community.

September 20th, 2015: No Service this Sunday.

Go enjoy our annual island Fall Fair this weekend as we will not be having a regular service.  See you next week for our monthly Unitarian singing service.

September 27th, 2015: Our monthly Unitarian singing service with Barbara Slater

Our first singing service of the new season!

In our family-friendly sacred song circles, Barbara Slater teaches us chants from around the world, as well as a few simple songs from the Unitarian tradition. Any fan of Barbara’s Ubuntu song circles around the island are certainly welcome.

Uplifting :) Don’t miss it!

October 4th, 2015: No Service this Sunday.

This Sunday we will not be having a service as the BC Fall Gathering will be happening in Nanaimo this year.

You’re invited to spend the weekend in Nanaimo, B.C. Save the date! Hosted by the First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo and Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship.

Please email Katie at if you are interested in carpooling or attending the gathering in Nanaimo.

October 11th, 2015: Grace with Amanda Tarling

Have we as Unitarians left the theological idea of grace behind? Should we reclaim the concept of grace? Grace invites us to be open to wonder but perhaps we have discarded grace because it has too much religious baggage. Could grace flow in our lives? How do humility and grace inform our spirituality?

October 25th, 2015: No service this Sunday.

No service this Sunday, but please join us next week for our monthly service with Amanda Tarling.

November 1st, 2015: Wonder and Transcendent Awareness with Amanda Tarling

Our first Unitarian source says “direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed by all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.” Acknowledging wonder in our lives is a huge task. How do we focus on the forces that uphold everything? Albert Einstein said “there are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” This morning we will look at the transcendent awareness that renews the spirit and our Unitarian faith.

November 8th, 2015: Social Justice Service

September 7th, 2014: Annual Pride Service with Amanda Tarling

This morning I would like to explore the word “Pride” and why it was the word that was chosen to represent a movement.  Wikipedia says “Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance. How do we wear our Pride personally, socially, politically, and how does Pride help define our  Spirituality.

Come join us for a Pride-filled Sunday service. Everyone is welcome.
