Thinking about attending church services during the summer months?
Last year the CUC organized opportunities for us to attend church online all across Canada. This summer we are encouraged look at the variety of services out there across the land. A couple of options for online services are:
Unitarian Church of Vancouver – 11 am
North Shore Unitarian – 10:30 am
First Unitarian Church of Victoria – 10:30 am
Toronto First Unitarian – 10:30 EDT (7:30 am PDT!)
Watch in the Beacon This Week for updates on two Beacon-led summer services – Poetry, Prose and Music and the Hymn Sing Along.
P.S. For other Canadian Unitarian Council summer online groups and gatherings, please check the events page on the CUC website.
Next regular Beacon Sunday service: September 12, 10:30 am
The Annual Water Ceremony
Rev. Meg Roberts
Beacon’s program year starts again with this special service. The annual water ceremony service is for all ages: we pour water from various sources into one common bowl, symbolizing the re-gathering of this community after a summer break.
We will be adapting this ceremony to be within Beacon’s Safety Plan (as well as the Provincial Health Officer’s orders). If all goes as we hope, we will be meeting in Sapperton Hall (with extra safety precautions) as well as having people join us online (for those who prefer to connect virtually from home). Watch for an update to confirm this in the September newsletter and the Beacon This Week emails.
We hope you have a summer of renewal, good health and meaningful connections. Check out all the other Beacon offerings in the summer newsletter and join in with our online small group gatherings. We look forward to seeing you in the fall and creating together this ritual of belonging.
Zoom orientation information are available here.
