Welcome to Our Congregation
The First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa is a spiritual community of 500-plus people who come from many different backgrounds. We are made up of people from different religions, ethnicities, races, sexual orientations and socio-economic backgrounds. The First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa dates back to the late 1800's.
We are seekers — looking for meaning and inspiration within the webs of our lives.
We are learners — growing in knowledge and understanding about ourselves, others, and the world around us.
We are builders — working together to create a supportive, inclusive community and a just, compassionate, and sustainable world.
We'd love you to visit!
If you are new to us...
We find that people visit or join us for many reasons.

Two ways to find out more about Unitarian Universalism and our congregation is to join us at a Sunday service or take our newcomer courses.
We'd love you to stay.
Maybe you’re seeking a spiritual home or community of like-minded people. perhaps you are looking for a program for your children that will guide them to be moral, compassionate people. Or, you may just need an hour of spirituality and tranquility in the midst of a busy life. Find out about membership here and get information about our newcomer courses.

Moving into the New Year with Thoreau

The life of Henry David Thoreau provides inspiration in a multitude of perspectives. As we transition out of 2014 and move toward 2015, how might his example and his wisdom inform us?
