Oliver Community Festival
Saturday · June 3 · 3-9 pm
There goes the Neighbourhood!
This year we will be creating an outdoor living room on the street with a market place, entertainment, and activities. There will be a political panel discussion, and a family friendly drag show and other fun activities like board games.
DVD Series
Mondays, May 15 and May 29 · 7:00 pm · Club Room.
Violence Divine: Overcoming the Bible's Betrayal of its non-Violent God is the latest in a series of DVD lectures by scholar Dominic Crossan. Jesus declared Peace, but we have misunderstood much of his message. Join facilitator Nancy Heule on Monday evenings.
Refreshments provided. Attendees are encouraged to read Genesis Chapters 1, 2 and 3 before the series begins. Note: The group will not meet on May 22.
Meditation Group
Sundays, 10:00 am to 10:25 am · Room 11.
Meditation has been important in many spiritual traditions through the centuries. If you are a committed meditator or would like to learn how to meditate, come Sunday mornings before the service at 10:00 am for a group meditation session. See for yourself how this technique can improve your health - mind, body and soul.

Open Hearts—Open Community

In response to God's call, we,
the congregation of Robertson-Wesley United Church,
declare our commitment to opening our hearts and our church family
to all people in our community,
regardless of sexual orientation, age, gender,
differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance.
We recognize that many people's lives continue
to be devastated by hatred, prejudice, and inequality,
therefore, as a compassionate and caring spiritual community
we will stand with those who are adversely affected
by injustice, alienation and oppression.
