The people of Oak Bay United Church are rooted in the traditions of the United Church of Canada. We are a progressive christian community, practicing the radically inclusive and egalitarian way of Jesus Christ. We find authority for our lives in God’s presence in Scripture, reason, human experience and church tradition.
The leadership and gifts of all people are welcome at Oak Bay United: women, men and transgender; children, youth, young adults, adults and elders; straight, lesbian, gay, queer or questioning; seekers, doubters and believers.
We trust that we all have something of God to share: experiences, knowledge, questions and beliefs. We hope that you’ll bring these things with you, enriching this community of faith. Whether it’s your first time here, or you call this church home, your presence makes a difference.
Our beliefs can be summed up by
We are not alone,
who has created and is creating,
We trust in God.
to celebrate God's presence,
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
