Welcome to Alberni Valley United Church and the Centre

Welcome to Alberni Valley United Church and the Centre

Alberni Valley United Church, a Centre of Faith, Dialogue, Connection, and Learning,

Mission:  to be reconciling.

Values: acceptance, connection and emergence.  

A question that lives in us is: WHAT DO WE NEED TO CREATE A COMMUNITY OF CONNECTION, LEARNING AND DIALOGUE?  The overwhelming answer has been that first; we truly need to build our capacity skills & preparation to even be able to move towards “better” together, to build our ability to dialogue across difference, to build our collective capacity for growth mindsets, to expand our thinking and worldviews and into real collaborative impact.

A quote that is meaningful is:  "When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each ."~ Margaret Wheatly.

We are one of the sponsors for "The Art of Hosting Courageous Community." 

On a typical Sunday morning, you may sing a familiar hymn or two, get to try out a new song, pray for yourself and our world in words that are relevant for today, and hear a sermon that is born out of scripture and relevant to our current context. We explore the Jesus ethic of love, the interconnectedness of all things, justice and our call to action.  We think that the Spirit of Life is inviting us to grow toward human wholeness,  to live as a beneficial presence in the world, and to work relentlessly for justice. We think that connection, art and music support us to be our best selves.

Thought for the week

Thomas Berry says, “Nature is not a collection of objects, but a communion of subjects".” Wild Churches approach the more-than-human Others in our watersheds as sacred others, others who mirror us,
