“Myths of Creation.”

Biographies of artists, actors, and writers are often tales of tragedy, drunkenness, and insanity. Must there be a correlation between intense creative personalities and self-destruction or madness?

“Writers Write.”
Rev. Jess & Authors from GRU with The Spirit of Life Choir.

Today we celebrate the written work of several GRU authors with reading, reflection, and song.

Our featured authors will be selling and signing their books after the service.

“Love and Justice.”

UU minister Naomi King writes: “if we are among the love people, the folk called to be part of changing the world without hate, we have much work, much spiritual, legal, practical, and relational work to do. Love is not about drawing in and drawing smaller circles. That does not keep hate out or turn hate away. Love asks us to be bold and risky and vulnerable and faithful to these amazing promises we have made.” What promises dare we make as UUs to one another, and to the world?




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.
