church(ish) was born out of a desire to create an authentic spiritual experience beyond what most traditional religious services offer. Many people have little or no religious affiliation, yet most of us seek to live lives that are spiritually connected with ourselves, each other, and with something bigger than us — whether we call it God/Spirit/Earth/Oprah or other names!
The role of spirituality in our lives can be healing and meaningful — encouraging us in our unique identities and callings, and challenging us to live out what love looks like.
We hope to offer a space where no one has to 'fit in' but anyone can belong. Where we can talk and share, and where we don't have to know the rites and rituals before we come. This is not an attempt to be 'cool' or post-modern, rather it embodies our deep belief that people like us and many who are different from us, share the same desire to be personally connected and to transform our world for the better. While some elements like music, reflections, and cultural expressions, may be familiar, you don't need to be church-ey to attend! It's not really church, it's just church-ish. A gathering where we can be vulnerable, authentic, and committed to personal and community transformation.
We will gather on five Sunday evenings at McDougall United Church:
February 4, March 11, April 1, May 6, June 3.
We will have some light 'brunch at night' items and coffee and tea available at 6:30 p.m., with the gathering starting at 7 p.m.
