“Light the Way.”  

Rev. Jess & The Spirit of Life Choir, directed by Rich Hrytzak

Margaret Atwood writes:   “This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight,

Christmas Eve Family Candlelight Service: 
“Each Night a Child Is Born Is a Holy Night.”   

Every year we tell the tale of those wandering magi, wondering shepherds, and wondrous parents.  Come celebrate in story, song, and candlelight.

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.
