Beacon Unitarian Church welcomes you!
Beacon is a joyful, musical, liberal religious community that draws people from New Westminster, the Tri-Cities, and other municipalities east of Vancouver. We invite you to explore this web site and its links to see what our church and Unitarian Universalism have to offer. If you are interested, come join us on Sunday!
— Sue Sparlin, President, Beacon Board of Trustees
Sunday services are held at 10:30 a.m., from September to June, at Sapperton Hall, 318 Keary Street, New Westminster, B.C., Canada. Find Us! During the summer, services are sometimes held in members' homes and various interesting places. On one Sunday in late spring, service is held at Sasamat Outdoor Camp in Belcarra.
We offer a Religious Education program for children aged 3-12 years. Through the program, children are exposed to Unitarian Universalist values as they explore new ideas and concepts. Parents of infants aged 2 and under can access a nursery during the service, if needed. The nursery has toys and comfortable chairs, and is wired for sound so you can continue listening to the service.
We love to sing! Every service includes music, from congregational hymns to instrumental solos. The Beacon Choir is an integral part of two services a month. Enthusiastic singers are always welcome to join the choir. Siyahamba!
Having completed the recommended course and having voted unanimously in favour, Beacon is a recognized Welcoming Congregation. Whatever your sexual orientation, whatever your gender identity, you don't have to pretend or hide or feel left out. Come as you are!
Social outreach: Beacon helps run the Coquitlam Food Bank, and, through its “Sharing the Plate” program, shares half of the undesignated collection each Sunday with a local charity – this past year the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society.
We can reach out only if we are strong within. Beacon provides a variety of ways to help with the spiritual growth of members and adherents.
Beacon is pleased to have a lay chaplain who can perform rites of passage—weddings, memorial services or funerals, and child dedications or blessings—both for members and for the general public.
