Email Groups and Web Forums
Various committees, neighbourhood groups and affinity/interest groups host email groups that are open to those who are part of that group. Most groups are googlegroups. This is also the platform chosen by CUC for their groups.
Here are some that may be of interest to you. Usually your request will be forwarded to a moderator of the email list or forum and you’ll receive a response within a day or two.
Vancouver Unitarians Email Discussion Group (aka UCV Chat)
Open to all members, friends and adherents. There are about 100 people and an average of 25-30 messages per month.
Join by sending an email to email@example.com
NEW! Web Forum – for Members Only
This has been set up to discuss topics of UCV business, usually topics that may come to a general meeting or board/committee meeting.
Topics are posted by board members or committee/task force chairs. To view the topics click here.
Members can post their comments and questions. Join by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
This Week at UCV
This is an “announcement” email group – you’ll receive only one message each week from Marcus with the upcoming Sunday’s program for the Sunday service and a list of the next week’s events with links (taken from the Events List on our website).
Neighbourhood Group Email Lists
Various neighbourhood groups have their own email groups for posting about regular events and also spontaneous invitations from those who live nearby.
Send a note to email@example.com with your address to be added to the nearest group for you. (Some people are on two – e.g. westside plus fairview/false creek if they live close to two. That’s OK too.)
Arts and Culture
Members of the group post plays, films and art shows they are interested in attending and invite others to join them.
Join by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who has attended one of the Earth Spirit Circle are invited to join this group.
Join by sending an email to email@example.com
