Moving First Forward

Be part of the visionary renewal project on the site of First United Church at Gore and Hastings in Vancouver’s Downtown East side.  As Shaughnessy Heights United Church, our mission is “Co-creating with God for a Better World”.  Help the wonderful energetic team do that with purpose and intention by making a donation and being part of our “Congregational Contribution” to the First Forward Campaign, along with other BC congregations.

Vision Council is serious about our contribution to this social justice effort in our midst.  To that end, we have committed matching funds of up to $100,000 from  our Endowments, for a SHUC goal of $200,00.  Please help us reach that goal!

To donate, CLICK HERE and identify yourself as a member of SHUC.  See what magic we can do together!

Shaughnessy Heights United Church, easily accessible in central Vancouver, seeks to be a congregation grounded in tradition, centered in worship, free to explore new ideas and called to serve.

We welcome all to join in our worship and community gathering times on Sunday mornings at 10am as well as at the various events listed below. Our office is open from 9am-4:30pm Monday-Thursday. In consideration of those who experience fragrance sensitivity, our building is a scent-free facility.

When we gather together at Shaughnessy Heights United Church, let us pause to remember that we worship, engage in God’s work and share community on lands that are the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy’əm (Musqueam) people, members of the Coast Salish peoples. May we live with respect on this land, and live in peace and friendship with its people.
