Our Fellowship

The Unitarian Fellowship of Regina was initiated in 1954 when several people met in Regina with Lotta Hitschmanova of the international Unitarian Service Committee. In 1955, the Fellowship was officially accepted into the Unitarian Universalist Association, the North American resource organization, at that time based in Boston. Today, we aim to be aware and connected to our community. We strive to connect to all people with a listening ear, an open mind, and a caring heart. This Covenant guides our relationships.

Local Connections

  • Black in Saskatchewan is an inspirational, youth-led organization. We work as active allies to dismantle racism in Saskatchewan, especially in Regina.

Canadian Unitarian Council

We are a member of the national Canadian Unitarian Council which enables us to share resources used by about 50 other Unitarian congregations across the country. We are fortunate to have access to the wisdom of Unitarian consultants and to Unitarian ministers who inspire us. Canadian Unitarian ministers share their thoughts and promote action, to help us accountably dismantle racism (8th Unitarian Principle).

We are Canadian Unitarians and Universalists

We are people of many paths who are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history, and spirituality, but are aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good.

We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people. We think for ourselves, and we recognize that life experience is the strongest influence on our beliefs.

We live our values in our work for social justice. Unitarian Universalists have advocated for affordable housing, choice in dying, and world peace. We sponsor refugees and seek truth, healing, and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. We work for racial justice, criminal justice, and climate justice. And for more than forty years we have been at the forefront of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer inclusion.

We are called to love and justice through our interdependence on each other and on the world around us. We aspire to be deeply connected, radically inclusive, actively engaged, theologically alive, and spiritually grounded.

We seek to welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Find out what it means to live your deepest values out loud. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith.

With thanks to the Unitarian Universalist Association

Unitarian Universalists World-wide

Unitarianism originated in Europe … possibly as early as 1568 with an edict on religious tolerance by King John Sigismund in mountainous Transylvania. Other groups emerged in Poland and London, England. By the late 1700s, Unitarian groups also had evolved in North America in several locations.

Unitarian Universalist Association provides online resources that benefit Unitarians across North America. The UUA also supports congregations in their work by training ministers, publishing books and the UU World magazine, providing religious education curricula, offering shared services, coordinating social justice activities, and more, including action with the United Nations.
