Seven Principles, Six Sources, and Five Aspirations Walk Into a Bar....”
Janis Collins, GRU Board President.

Is it a Unitarian joke? Is it a math joke? Or is there something to all these numbers and words?

Janis Collins loves words (lots of words), but hopes to use them wisely as she navigates her UU path.

Chris Moore, UU Seminarian, with Service Leader Charlotte Innerd.

Our friend Chris Moore returns to GRU to share another thoughtful reflection.

Annual Water Communion and Ingathering Service. 

Join Rev. Jess for the launch of our congregational year.  You are invited to bring a small sampling of water representing your summer vacations and “staycations” as we mingle our experiences in this uniquely Unitarian Universalist ritual.   A potluck will follow today’s service.  Please bring a dish to share.


Welcome to our Congregation!

We are a liberal religious community that draws inspiration from its Judeo-Christian heritage as well as the wisdom of world religions, our direct experience of transcending mystery and wonder, the words and deeds of prophetic women and men, humanist teachings, and the spiritual teachings of Earth-centred traditions. We include believers, doubters, and seekers; those who pray, those who meditate, and those who pour their souls out in song. We pledge to support one another in our individual searches for truth and meaning. Will you join us?

We gather for our regular Sunday services at 10:30 AM. Located in Kitchener, we draw people from all over the Waterloo region. Visitors are warmly welcomed. Please follow us on Facebook to be notified of additional updates.
