WELCOME TO UCM

We are the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga, a religious community of individuals who are guided by compassionreason and love on an individual search for truth and meaning.  Our regular Sunday program begins at 10:30am weekly.


ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SPIRITUAL COMMUNITY?

Imagine UCM...

Imagine walking into a Congregation where you are surrounded by people who believe in the freedom of religious expression. You are part of a community where each person is encouraged to explore their individual faith. Unitarians embark on this ever-changing, self-transforming, lifelong search for truth with the support of a community of fellow seekers. In this sacred space we:

  • seek personal growth
  • seek to belong, but do not wish to believe in a religious doctrine
  • build relationships of fairness and love
  • respect the views and needs of others
  • practice tolerance, understanding and acceptance

This is what awaits you at the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga.

 

Imagine UCM where People are Dedicated to...

Social justice, the environment and nurturing inclusivity in the community. UCM Congregational members of all ages regularly participate in various community action projects — whether it’s cleaning up a local park, helping out at the food bank, or advocating for affordable housing, choice in dying, and world peace. We sponsor refugees and seek truth, healing, and reconciliation. At the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga we are called to love and justice through our interdependence on each other and on the world around us.

Imagine UCM where People Aspire to be...

  • deeply connected
  • radically inclusive
  • actively engaged
  • theologically alive
  • spiritually grounded

Imagine Being Welcome at UCM...

Whatever your gender identity, sexual orientation or racial identity. Our Principles call us to:

  • affirm the worth and dignity of every individual
  • accept one another
  • foster each other’s spiritual growth.

Many people coming from interfaith and secular families find a religious home in our Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga, where each person’s beliefs and traditions are honored. To us at UCM, family is a big tent. Family means chosen family, family of origin, second family, blended family, adoptive family, extended family. Family means two married men with three cats, a grandmother raising her granddaughter, a single adult with far-flung siblings, and a man and a woman with four kids. We celebrate the full spectrum of sexual orientations and gender identities that families include. We nurture all kinds of families, helping families be resilient and loving.





Imagine Sitting in a Beautiful Space for a Unitarian Service...

Imagine listening to music from Bach or from Brazil… hearing the inspiring words of Thoreau or Maya Angelou. During UCM Services, the music and readings may be taken from sources as old and varied as the Torah, Koran, Bible, or Native American and African works. The Service and music may also be inspired by something as timely as today’s headlines or popular tunes.

Our choir, Voices UUnited  sings beautifully and enlivens the congregation’s songs. Our Sunday morning services start at 10:30 am. We welcome all.


Imagine UCM where Children and Youth...

Grow up learning about the world’s major religions, fostering a greater sense of world citizenship. They learn about the rich history of Unitarian such as:

  • Susan B. Anthony, worked for women’s rights
  • Clara Barton, Red Cross Founder
  • Robert Munsch, children’s author
  • Henry David Thoreau
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ethical living is a cornerstone of the religious education program for children and youth at the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga, where they are taught to put their faith into “action” and make the world a better place! Within a safe and loving community, we help our children and youth grow up to be responsible and respectful members of the global community, able to act with compassion and to speak for justice.
