About Us

WHO WE ARE

The Unitarian Church of Edmonton is a liberal religious community. It is a self-financed and congregationally-directed church. Our church is a member of the Canadian Unitarian Council.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Freedom of Belief
We believe that each individual is responsible for exercising his or her own judgement in matters of religious faith.

The Discipline of Reason
We believe in a search for truth and right based on the weight of evidence, the thoroughness of reason and the impulse of compassion.

Growth and Change
We believe that the mind and spirit grow through the quest for new truths and new meanings. Therefore, a spirit of trust and respect for the opnions of every person pervades our enterprise and outlook.

Community and Diversity
We believe that every aspect of the endless variety of nature is related to every other. Not only do we value the interrelationships and those things held in common by humankind, but also we celebrate the differences among human beings, cultures and ideas.

WHERE WE ARE LOCATED

We are located at 10804 119 Street in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The new UCE Building is located at 10804 - 119 Street.

It is drawn from the history of the Christian Reformation in Czechoslovakia where Jan Hus asserted that all members of the congregation, and not only the priests, should be allowed to drink from the chalice at holy communion. Hus was burned at the stake for his efforts, but his followers persisted in building a church that believes in the "priesthood of all believers."
