We are in our sixty-first year in St. Catharines. The best way to characterize our denomination these days is that it is a church without a creedal requirement. This means that we welcome a diversity of approaches toward the formulation of answers to the large questions concerning the meaning of life, the nature of reality, the sacred, transcendence, and death.

We believe that it is our duty, as well as our privilege, to form a loving community, not because we happen to believe the same things, but exactly because we respect one another in our individuality and diversity. We do not think that the institution of the church is the repository of final answers to our questions; it is, rather, a fellowship of seekers, who enjoy sharing their respective individual journeys toward deepening our understanding and insights, as well as refining our feeling responses to the beauty, mystery, and challenges of life.

We value human beings, and, indeed, all life; we believe in the interconnectedness of all aspects of reality; we value reason and reflection; we believe in the democratic process, in the importance of love, compassion and generosity and in the possibility of development, maturation, and deepening individually, culturally, and globally.

The Unitarian Congregation of Niagara is a fragrance-free zone. Fragrance may be distressful and threaten the well-being of those around you. In order to make this a safe and welcoming environment for everyone who comes here, we ask that you refrain from wearing fragrances. Your understanding and co-operation is appreciated
