About Our Faith

Unitarian Universalism is a loving, free faith that grew out of the Protestant Reformation into today’s embracing, inclusive religion that includes many different beliefs and spiritual paths. It’s historical roots can still be identified in its name – Unitarian, meaning one who affirms the unity of all existence, and Universalist, one who believes in universal love and salvation, or the idea that all souls will be saved. But in its present incarnation, Unitarian Universalism has love, compassion and justice at its heart, affirms the diversity and interconnectedness of all life, and is a faith of “deeds not creeds.” We draw on many resources for inspiration, and encourage each person on their spiritual path to seek in loving community the answers to questions of ultimate meaning that have perplexed humanity since the beginning of time.

Our congregation is affiliated with a number of related organizations. The Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC) represents our faith community in Canada. The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is the larger North American headquarters of our religion. We are also part of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists (ICUU) and are affiliated with the International Association for Religious Freedom (IARF). We also hold observer status at the United Nations and have an Office there - the UU-UNO.  These links will give you  access to a lot of information about our religion, our organization, and our churches
