The Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga (UCM) is a religious community of individuals who are guided by compassion, reason and love on an individual search for truth and meaning.
We are a growing and diverse congregation. We find meaning and value in the rich and deep history of Unitarianism because our religious tradition draws inspiration from many sources including the wisdom of the world's faith traditions, nature, science, and contemporary thought.
The diversity of our religious beliefs resonates with the multicultural community in which we are located. UCM serves Peel (Brampton, Mississauga), Halton (Oakville, Burlington and Milton) and Etobicoke.

Winter Solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. This circumstance caused the ancients considerable anxiety. They worried each year that the sun might not be able to gain its warmth back again. Midwinter festivals therefore centred around the idea of rebirth to assist the “newborn” sun to grow in strength when it emerged from the dark womb of night.
Join us for our 22nd annual Winter Solstice celebration, as we celebrate the dark and the growing light with ritual, song, chants, dance and meditation.
This event is free but donations are always welcome,. Let us know if you need childcare. Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga is a nut free environment but snacks to share during conversation later are always welcome.
Come and meet your local Pagan community at the most beautiful ritual circle of the year.
