Hillhurst United Church has opened its doors for over 100 years to those looking for open-minded exploration issues that matter to them.
Our values lead everything we do:
RADICAL HOSPITALITY - SOCIAL JUSTICE - SPIRITUALITY
Each value inspires community life and ministry together.
The coffee is on for both our Sunday services and we invite you to come as you are! After the 10:45am service, there is time to enjoy lunch prepared by fellow members of the congregation. Once a month, we also host an early-bird breakfast at 8:15am.
Throughout the week there are educational programs aimed at inviting you to ponder and create a meaningful life. Additional learning and opportunities happen throughout the year as contemplative arts (meditation, retreats and spiritual direction) lectures, community discussions and workshops.
Led by the passions of the congregation our social justice work includes areas of Right Relations amongst Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal peoples, Syrian Refugee Family sponsorship, and climate change study. Outreach work includes food bank and Calgary homeless community connections.
