Adult Programs

Women's Spirtuality at Richmond Hill United

Bible Study

  Will resume in 2020. 

Book Club         

RHUC Book Club: Please join us on Wednesday, January 29th at 7 p.m. in the RHUC Chapel to discuss two books: The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg AND Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins. 

 Both of these books are more light-hearted than the 'heavier' books we have been reading this fall. New members are welcome to join us at any time. No previous book club experience is necessary - just a love of reading and discussing books. We are a friendly bunch!

 For more details about the group, please speak to Deb Fratin in the church office (905.884.1301) or Sandra Loughton, Book Club Facilitator. 

H.A.I.R. (Heretics, Agnostics, Infidels and other Riff Raff)

HAIR (Heretics, Agnostics, Infidels and Other Riffraff) is the Monday evening study group where we gather to explore questions, express doubts, and realize that we are not the only ones who have wondered these things. We meet Mondays from 7:00 to 8:30 in the chapel,  and all are welcome. In the Fall we will watch and discuss a number of TED talks, which will provide the basis for discussion, and which require no background or continuity. Later in the year we will shift to reading and discussing a book, or watching and discussing a video series. Please join us any Monday to explore your faith and its applicability to our lives, to ask the questions you may not have felt comfortable raising, and to learn with and from a stimulating group of fellow questioners.

Men’s Breakfast Group          

    Men’s Breakfast: Saturday, January 11th, 2020. Coffee and tea will be served at 8:15am, followed by breakfast at 8:30 prepared by our UCW friends.  New participants are always welcome. The Men’s Breakfasts are a time of fellowship and camaraderie.  Feel free to contact us if you’re interested in more information about it. Cost is $10 / person, with net proceeds to the UCW. Please RSVP to Harry Ramsaran ( or 905 508 4758) by Thursday, January 9th. Thank you!

 After Breakfast, Wilhelm Bleek will speak about “Paul Schneider: A Christian Martyr in Nazi Tyranny”. Wilhelm’s Father and Grandfather were pastors of the German United Church, active in the religious resistance against the Nazi ideology and oppression. Recently sorting the papers of his ancestors, Wilhelm came across the fate of the Reverend Schneider, who in July 1939 was the first protestant pastor to be murdered by the Nazis.

  Shalom Seekers

    In January, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Chapel, we will start a discussion of the book "Everything Happens for a Reason (And Other Lies I've Loved)" by Kate Bowler. For that session, please read the Preface and Chapter One: Diagnosis. New members are always welcome. Please speak to Peg Hiscoke or Sandra Loughton (Co-Facilitators) for more details.
