Open Doors…Open Hearts…Open Minds
That’s what we do here on a daily basis. So come exactly as you are. Regardless of your age, religious background, racial heritage, sexual orientation, or gender identity, we aim to make sure you feel welcome. No dress requirements and while we rely on donations to run our programs, money is never a barrier to your participation in the life of our community.
We offer 2 different types of worship services on Sunday,
- The ConXion at the Arbutus Site: this service celebrates the blurred lines between the sacred and secular and helps us make the connections. Using video clips, spoken word and a wide array of music styles and choices, we seek to consistently integrate these from a progressive theological perspective. A vibrant, interactive, engaging worship experience for all ages.
- The Bridge at the Arbutus site: attempts to “bridge” traditional and contemporary United Church worship styles using hymns both old and new, will incorporate both piano and organ music, and will be familiar to people who have attended church previously
Both services preach progressive theology, and strive for inclusive language but whereas The ConXion will change the words of beloved music – even Christmas Carols 😊 The Bridge will not alter the tradition so radically.
So, grab a cup of coffee and come into our “living room”! Let your children play, dance, and sing- they have so much to teach all of us! In fact, we’ve created some special places for them to explore their own spiritual paths, in developmentally appropriate ways.
But life in our church community is about more than what happens on Sunday: check out the many services, programs, and activities offered, mostly free of charge, throughout the week and year to anyone interested.
Something for EVERYONE at Broad View United!
