Everyone is Welcome!
Hillhurst United Church is a place that for 100 years has opened its doors to those looking for open-minded discussions on issues that matter to them. Our core values are Radical Hospitality, Social Justice and Spirituality.
Embrace the Race! Big changes May 26!
Sunday, May 26,
as we embrace the Scotiabank Marathon
that will zip through our neighbourhood! There will be several local road closures
during our normal service times, so we thought - let's embrace the race and celebrate with each other and our community!
ALL parking at HUC will be unavailable
due to road closures, but there will be parking available at the Legion
just down Kensington Road - prepare for a 10 minute walk!
Note that we will not have any scheduled services, however, our Sanctuary will remain open during the race for those wishing to light candles or meditate.
Here's what will happen: meet on Kensington Rd across from the church. We will have light breakfast items, live music, and materials to make cheer signs for the runners who will pass by! Over 6,000 runners will pass us; this is a great opportunity to spread radical hospitality.
KidSpace will provide activities for the children.
Come for a bit, or stay for the whole time!
Hillhurst United is an Affirming Ministry. We commit to be an inclusive community of faith that follows in the Way of Jesus under the banner:
Whoever you are, wherever you're at, join us on the journey...
We strive to accept each other as we are and welcome the ministry and participation of all persons regardless of age, gender identity, health, race, sexual orientation, differing abilities, religious or ethnic background or economic circumstance.
We hope that in all that we do, including our worship and community life, God's unconditional love is experienced.
We do this trusting God is with us on the journey.
