Beacon Unitarian Church welcomes you!
Welcome to our joyful, creative, transforming community! Beacon is a 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 you. If you are interested, come join us on Sunday!
— Warmly, Rev. Debra Thorne
From early September to mid-June, Sunday services are held at 10:30 a.m., at Sapperton Hall, 318 Keary Street, New Westminster, B.C., Canada. Find Us! During the summer months, services are generally held in members’ homes.
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 year, the Communities Embracing Restorative Action (CERA) .
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 both our minister and lay chaplain who can provide you with meaningful Rites of Passage—Weddings, Memorials or Celebrations of Life, Child Dedications or Blessings.
