Welcome to SSUC Edmonton
An inclusive and affirming spiritual community

Join us every Sunday at 10 am for our spiritual gathering. 

Our commitments

SSUC endeavors to provide a safe environment for spiritual gatherings, social and learning events, and all activities it sponsors.

SSUC has always been committed to providing leadership in deepening awareness and engaging in meaningful action that responds to social justice issues locally, nationally and globally.

On January 31, 1999, our congregation embraced a new identity as an affirming congregation within the United Church of Canada!  In doing so, we committed ourselves to be a community of authentic welcome, acceptance and safety for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual and heterosexual persons. 

SSUC is committed to honouring the long history of the Indigenous peoples of this land reaching beyond colonization. We seek to celebrate the significance of the traditions and history of this land for the Indigenous peoples who lived and continue to live upon the territory we now call home.

We have pledged to join the global partnership for a just, sustainable, and peaceful world and to work for the realization of the values and the principles of the Earth Charter.

What is Spiritual Seekers United in Community?

This is a community where a diverse gathering of people can explore the best of their humanity and how that might inspire us to live with each other, with nature and the world. SSUC is anything but ordinary: committed to celebrating and exploring truth, compassion, justice and courageous living, the community holds a reverence for the spiritual life. Although rooted in the best of the Jesus tradition, SSUC celebrates life-affirming insight and wisdom, wherever we find it. Learn more here.

Our facility

We regard our building as a facility to support and host programs and events that nurture the community and are consistent with our values and goals. We welcome non-profit and community groups to make use of our space for their meeting or event needs. Our Office Administrator looks after showing and booking the space, and all questions regarding fees and requirements.
