Metro Vancouver Unitarians
Locally, there are three other congregations in the Lower Mainland area:
- North Shore Unitarian Church in West Vancouver
- Beacon Unitarian Church in New Westminster
- South Fraser Unitarians in Surrey
People are usually members of only one congregation but frequently attend events at other congregations especially special events, concerts and regional workshops. Depending on their role, they may have connections with others in similar roles. There have been connections regarding refugee support, lay chaplaincy, social justice and more.
Share invitations and ideas about joining forces. Ask questions. Arrange to connect in person, by phone or otherwise.
The BC Region includes eleven congregations. There is usually a weekend gathering each year for Unitarians to connect across the province. From cuc.ca/congregations
