Our Thursday evening gatherings begin at 6:00 pm with a meal followed at 7:30 by prayer and conversation, usually led by the minister. We meet in the home of one of our members (on West 57th Ave, just west of Arbutus). You are welcome to join us for dinner and/or the conversation that follows. We conclude by 9:00 pm. All are welcome to join us. Contact us for more information.
Every year we invite forty-seven Uhillians to each host a scripture passage, listening for a word from God to our life together and then offering a response - expressed in words or art or music. We publish this collection of responses online and invite one another to the discipline of reading, hosting and praying these texts through the season of Lent. You can find the 2015 Lenten Devotional here.
Bible at Breakfast
We meet on Wednesday mornings from 7:30 to 8:30 at the White Spot on Broadway at Larch to host a chapter of scripture with lively conversation over breakfast. On most Wednesdays Eric Stephanson joins our gathering. Anywhere from three or four to nine or ten of us may be on hand. Our practice is to discuss a book of the Bible, one chapter per week. We are currently reading the book of Deuteronomy. You are most welcome to drop in for breakfast and conversation.
Forming Faith Together
You do not need to be an expert in order to participate or to feel that you belong. Bring yourself, your curiosity, your questions and your life experience
Partnering with First United
We invite participation in our partnership with the First United Church Mission in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. There are a variety of ways to join in this partnership. Every Sunday we invite offerings of food for the Emergency Food Cupboard at First. On the fourth Sunday of each month we gather following worship to prepare twelve dozen sandwiches to be served along in a ministry of hospitality on Monday morning at First.
