SHUC offers a range of volunteer, lay leader and staff-facilitated groups tailored to the spiritual and community interests of adults.

Men & Muffins

For more than 20 years, 10 to 15 people have gathered at SHUC at 8 am on the first and third Saturday of each month. All are welcome to join us for a hot cup of coffee, a small selection of goodies, and lively conversation in a relaxed atmosphere. No topic is too small or too large. Men of all ages and at different stages of their lives take part and even do some handy work at the church on occasion.

Seniors and Friends

Please join our Seniors Scene in the SHUC Lounge at 1:30 pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month, for food, conversation and a short program. Mark your calendars for The Holly Tea in November and The Daffodil Tea in April. Watch the SHUC weekly email for details. Please RSVP early by calling the church office at 604-261-6377, or sign up at the Action table on Sundays!

Thursday Morning Study Group

Our monthly ‘not a Bible Study’ group meets at the Vancouver Lawn and Tennis Club for orange juice, muffins and coffee at 7:30 am. Group members gather to talk about and interpret various authors. A member usually leads each 90-minute session, or occasionally, an invited speaker. Our talks are frank and full of laughter.

This is an open discussion group about where you are on your faith journey encompassing the structure and culture of many religions. All opinions are invited and many are a source of friendly debate. We’ve discussed Marcus Borg’s The God We Never Knew, Thomas Harper’s Finding the Still Point, Bruce Sanguin’s Darwin Divinity and the Dance of the Cosmos and Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. Anyone interested is welcome; check the SHUC Calendar for the next Thursday Morning Study Group, or call the church office at 604-261-6377.

Young Adults Group

The Young Adult group at Shaughnessy Heights is an active and growing ministry in our church. We range in age from 18 to 35 and encompass people at various stages of life. This includes recent high school graduates, those establishing their careers and new parents with young families.
