Opportunities for spiritual growth and nurture
Worship is the core of our community life. Worship is...
Space to express our joy and anger, despair and hope, faith and doubt.
Time to hear the Christian story told for today.
Encountering the holy creative presence of God.
Friendship, to be together with others.
AUC weekly community worship service is at 11am on Sundays. We also regularly celebrate joint worship services with our Ecumenical partners Greyfriars, Church of Scotland, and St Columba’s by the Castle, Episcopal Church. The NiteKirk is at Greyfriars 8pm-12am on the third Friday of each month.
Courses, discussion, lectures, workshops, forums, gatherings. Talking, listening, painting, writing, praying, meditating, reading, thinking, singing, walking are just a few of the media through which we find nourishment for our minds, spirits and bodies. At AUC we encourage opportunities to develop our spirituality, learn from each other and broaden our understanding of the world, that throughout our lives we would taste more fully the fullness of Life which Christ offers.
AUC offers affirming space for Christians who are LGBT to meet together, to share their experience, to find support and to explore their faith.
Our Tribe is the name of our LGBT ministry. We host monthly gatherings and also monthly meeting of Transcendence - our transgender and spirituality group.
