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.
