Please join us for an experience and expression of faith and Spirit
that is beyond words. 

At Jubilee United Church we practice an open-table which means that everyone regardless of age or religious profession is invited to the table. Unlike our sacramental siblings in the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox churches we believe that the sacrament is experienced in the entire gathering, not exclusively in the bread and juice.  In short, although those attending Jubilee United Church have a variety of experiences and understanding of this sacrament, we do not share this table assuming that that the wine and juice are exclusively transformed. 

All of the bread is gluten-free and the juice is non-alcoholic grape juice. 

Whatever your specific needs, we will do our best to make sure that you can participate as you choose; we can bring the elements to your seat, we can provide more convenient cups, whatever will help you to participate.
