Who We Are
First Unitarian Fellowship of Nanaimo is an inclusive growing religious community of over 75 members and friends. Drawn from all areas of central Vancouver Island, we meet for worship and community at Unitarian Hall in the city of Nanaimo. We welcome all who share our philosophy regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity. We provide a full range of programs including: Sunday services, a children’s religious education program, a dynamic choir, open to all, and opportunities to meet in small and large groups for spiritual enrichment and fellowship.
Living our principles of social responsibility, we house and manage a low barrier shelter for unhoused people in Nanaimo in the lower floor of our building. Members are involved in numerous other social justice and environmental causes.
Our members and friends have a deep interest in environmental action. We are particularly concerned about impacts of climate change on the world our children will inherit. Some folks have participated in marches for climate action and others have taken bold steps to reduce their personal carbon footprint.
