What To Expect

34e6

When should I arrive?

Sunday services begin at 10:30 am. It is best to arrive about 15 minutes before service, especially if you have children. This will give you and your children time to meet their program teachers before service.

What should I wear?

We have a relaxed dress code. While a few members wear dressier outfits, the majority wear casual clothing. Children should wear comfortable clothes and their normal footwear.

Parking

On Sundays there is parking for approximately 20 cars in our lot off Ashdale Avenue, directly behind our building. There is also street parking on Hiawatha and Ashdale, free parking until 1:00 pm on Sundays on Gerrard Street and a pay lot (Green P) two blocks east. See our map and directions.

Kids and Youth

Kids and youth are important and valued members of our community! Here your kids can learn to make informed and ethical choices in their lives by learning “how to think” rather than “what to think.” Find out more about our exciting programs for kids and youth.

What happens after I walk in?

A greeter will welcome you as you enter our front door. He or she will answer any questions and invite you to our sanctuary just up the stairs. Our building is wheelchair accessible, too.

Our Sunday services

Our service changes often but usually includes: opening words, music, a message of inspiration and an offering.   After the service there is coffee and refreshments. We hope you will engage in the community and ask our members any questions you might have. Learn more about our Themed services.

What else goes on on Sunday?

There are many activities that take place after the service: potluck lunches, discussion groups and congregational meetings. There is often a discussion, perhaps about the sermon. Please feel free to look around and join anything that interests you.

Will someone try to pressure me to join or convert?

Absolutely not. While Unitarian Universalists are very open to others joining our faith and congregation, we will not pressure anyone to join – in fact, we encourage people to take all the time they need before they decide to join. We encourage you to attend our services, allow your children to participate in our programs for children and youth and consider how well Unitarian Universalism fits your personal beliefs.

For those who want to learn more about our congregation, a brief Newcomer’s Orientation is held on the first Sunday of every month in our meditation room at 11:45 am. It’s a casual conversation, with an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.
