Welcome to the Comox Valley Unitarians!

 We are a progressive, multigenerational spiritual community.

Unitarians believe we grow spiritually over our lifetimes, so we provide a safe place to come and explore what you believe and how you want to live your lives. Whichever sources we each draw from for our inspiration, we share common values and principles as a community. We have a common purpose and work together to make our world a more just, compassionate and caring place. Human beings are part of the web of life on this planet. We celebrate human diversity from sexual orientation, gender identity, culture, ability, income, opinion and belief. We welcome you just as you are.

This is a place to Nourish your Spirit and to Help Heal the World. Come join us!

What Have You Birthed in Your Life?

With Meg Roberts

Sunday, Mar 3 @ 4pm. In the Hall.

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8, we are exploring the idea of what we birthed in our lives. Some of us birthed children, others birthed projects, businesses, ideas, art, or things only you can describe. Think about what you have birthed and come hear from others as well as have an opportunity to share about your “baby!”

Join us for our monthly potluck after the service. Everyone is welcome!

Beatrix Potter’s world, and ours.

Sunday Mar  31 @ 4pm.  In the Hall.

Unitarians like to claim certain famous people as “our own”. Beatrix Potter is one such person - a naturalist, artist, business woman, farmer, and most famously, writer of children’s stories.   Story telling from her works, words about her life and work, and of course, an opportunity for imagining.

All ages welcome!    Hosted by Wendy McNiven

Live your deepest values out loud!

Listen to what makes Unitarian spiritual community special and why people from varying worldviews, cultures and lifestyles gather together in larger and small gatherings to participate in it.

Our Common Principles


Unitarians believe each person has a right to decide for themselves what they believe. Rather than holding common beliefs, we are guided by seven principles:

 

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • a free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
we're a welcoming congregation
