This Sunday’s Forum

Where is the Internet Taking us? A theatrical response

Sunday March 26, 12:30 – 1:30 pm, Fireside Room
Doug Ennenberg

The Nether played at the Firehall Arts Centre recently after a successful run at the Fringe. The play is described as, “A detective story that explores the nature of virtual realms, fantasy and morality.”It raised many issues that Unitarians could have a good discussion about.

UCV board member and actor, Doug Ennenberg, will share some of his experience of the play and together with moderator, Mary Bennett, facilitate a discussion on the issues raised. You don’t need to have seen the play to enjoy the discussion. #spoileralert Note: We will be offering a regular Forum sharing arts and cultural responses to contemporary issues.

This Sunday’s Service

Living through Unitarian Change

Rev. Dr. Phillip Hewett

Sanctuary :: Sunday, March 26 :: 11 am

Our Minister Emeritus writes: “When I was seventeen I left the church of my upbringing to become a Unitarian. Why? Now, seventy-five years later, I am still a Unitarian. Why? What has changed and what has stayed the same in the way I would answer those two questions?”

Join us for a timely and compelling worship service.

The Chalice Choir sings.

Walkabout and questions answered

Are You New to UCV?

The Unitarian Church of Vancouver (UCV) welcomes everyone. And of course, everyone in the video above – Why I Come to UCV – was once new to UCV. If you’re new to UCV, you most likely have in mind one or both of these two questions:

Is this for me? Maybe. See what you think.

Can anyone hold a function here? Yes. Take a look.

We’d be delighted to help you with these questions in person, on the phone, or by email. You can also find out more right now. Click on one of the links (in green) above. Or on the menu at the top of the page, check out the options under Who We Are for the first question, and under Bookings for the second. If you’d like discuss either of these or any other questions with someone here, please contact us.


What Else?

What else? Well, there is a lot that goes on around here – at 49th and Oak – and you don’t have to be a member to take part. Anyone can do anything except vote at a general meeting of the church or chair one of the committees. And anyone can go anywhere on this website that a member can. To see for yourself what you can do, click here.
