Upcoming Events







Death Diner? Seriously?

Well, yeah.  It happens to us all, and yet, talking about it is taboo.  So we’re offering a chance to change that.  Four dinners where the conversation is death and dying.  Each one with an experienced discussion leader – a doctor, a spiritual guide, a hospice leader, a mindfulness educator. We call the series Death Diner.  And it’s open to anyone. So tell your friends, family, neighbours — anyone who’s ready for some frank conversation about Life’s Biggest Challenge.

When: Four Wednesday evenings, 6 to 9 p.m. October 3 and 17, November 7 and 28.
Where: Beach United Church
Cost: By donation

Organ Stops 

Hear the gorgeous tones of Beach United’s Guilbault Therien organ masterfully played by Toronto organist Daniel Norman. Daniel will be playing a varied program of organ favourites.

Sought after for his musical sensitivity and versatility, Daniel is active as a conductor, keyboardist and collaborative artist. His love of music began with the melodious songs of Ariel the Mermaid and the danceable beats of the Mini-Pops. This gave way to grunge and the smooth R & B of the early 90s, both creating a natural segue into choirs and orchestras, and the realm of classical music.

When: Sunday, October 14, 2:30 p.m.
Where: Beach United Church
