The LGBTQ2S people that are part of SSUC are involved in every aspect of community life: leadership, organization, and participation in every way. Our Affirm Team is one of the groups within the community that plan monthly brunches on the 2nd Sunday of each month where all are welcome to find community, to make connections and to experience the safe place that SSUC works very hard to create. Often these brunches include a speaker on a topic of interest but most importantly, they offer time to feel that we belong together.
It may start with you walking through our doors on a Sunday morning and taking your place in our circle. Come and give yourself a chance to deepen your spiritual life and be part of the loving and supportive community you will find here.
SSUC is proud to have been the first affirming congregation within the United Church of Canada in Alberta and delighted to celebrate that we have been a caring and compassionate community for the queer community for more than 19 years. We celebrate our Affirming Anniversary in late January every year with a Sunday gathering followed by brunch.
