Welcome to WPGUC. With open doors, open minds and open hearts, the church has welcomed worshippers from the West Point Grey community and beyond for over 100 years. Whether you are a committed Christian, a spiritual seeker, a member of the WPG community or from farther away, we hope you will join our faith community at worship on Sundays or as a participant in one of our many church activities. Whoever you are and from wherever you are, join us on our journey and find yourself at home.
An Intercultural Church: We strive to be an intercultural church, where our differences are affirmed and celebrated. We understand that culture is much more than food, clothing and festivals; it is about our identity and boundary. We want to create a safe, welcoming faith community that we call our home.
Committed to Reconciliation: We recognize the lands upon which we worship as the ancestral, traditional and unceded lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh people, and commit to the ongoing work of reconciliation with all our Indigenous sisters and brothers.
An Affirming Church: On May 28, 2023 we officially joined Affirm United after two years of careful discernment. By joining Affirm United, we commit to Publically (through the use of signs and symbols, such as the pride flag), Intentionally (through continued learning and ongoing commitment), and Explicitly Affirm the place of 2SLGBTQ+ people in our church, loved and blessed as God has made them.

A Caring Church: We strive to support and nourish our Church Family through Pastoral Care. Our church also opens its doors to the wider community of West Point Grey and beyond, by welcoming All people, offering supportive services and programs and creating a warm, safe and inclusive environment.
