Something For Everyone

Volunteer Opportunities

Coffee Hour

Become part of our after Sunday worship Coffee Hour Team! We are currently holding after worship Coffee Hour once a month, but would like to offer more.  The thing is, we need more volunteers to be able to do that. It is not hard work and simple training will be provided. Everyone appreciates the opportunity to visit with each other regularly. We’ve lost volunteers over the COVID time and need to bring on some new ones to help us offer this opportunity for connection more often. If interested in volunteering, please contact the office.


Wish to help during Sunday worship? We are seeking welcome hosts, scripture readers, tech hosts, zoom hosts, candle lighters, communion helpers and those who are able to share in the land acknowledgement.   

Extreme Weather Shelter - Laundry

Join our Extreme Weather Shelter Laundry crew! During the season the shelter is open, we need help laundering bedding and towels in the morning. 


Throughout the year, as seasons change, we gather a crew of volunteers to help with cleaning, pruning and general clean up of the church grounds. Bring your gloves, gardening tools, and pruning shears and join us for a few hours sprucing up the place. 

Book Studies

Audio Visual and Sound Tech

Through out the year LUC hosts community events and services that require use of the audio, visual and sound system in our sanctuary. We always require tech volunteers to assist and training is provided.

START: Seeking Truth and Reconciliation Together

Kitchen Help

Join our kitchen team to help with coffee hour and serving food and beverages for special events and occasions. Training provided.

Embodied Prayer

Embodied Prayer

Embodied Prayer is a contemplative practice where participants are invited to move in “free form,” allowing the whole self to respond to the music in whatever way is accessible to each person. We let the rhythms in the music “inhabit” us by responding with whatever gestures and movements come to the surface. In this way our capacity to live more fully can expand as the physical, mental, and soulful beings God created us to be. Embodied Prayer can be fun, meaningful, energizing, deeply spiritual, and more!
Each session of movement is followed by a short silent sitting time for, “nothing quiets the mind faster than moving the body” (Gabrielle Roth).
A time of sharing is provided for to actively listen to whatever may want to be expressed about the journey we are on together.
This practice is inspired by the work of Gabrielle Roth, who identified 5 archetypal rhythms or energies we experience in living and are expressed in various music styles. Each has its unique feel: Flow, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, Stillness…

Please know that this practice is available to all those who inhabit a physical body. No level of physical fitness or dance experience is required. If you can feel the music and are open to the presence of the Holy then you can experience Embodied Prayer from sitting, lying down or standing in place.
In the past Embodied Prayer has been offered in person and online for 6 – 8 week periods at different times throughout the year. Please watch for the next Embodied Prayer offering.

Celebration Centre

Silent Prayer & Prayer Labyrinth

Silent Prayer & Prayer Labyrinth

If you’re interested in coming to the church for some time of silent prayer, the sanctuary is available throughout the week during our church office hours. Please check with the church office first, if you’re interested in stopping by.

In our Celebration Centre, we also have a Prayer Labyrinth which is a small path that leads, via a circuitous route, to the center of an intricate design and back out again. It is used to facilitate prayer, meditation, spiritual transformation, and global unity. Prayer labyrinths have been used in a wide variety of cultures for thousands of years. If you’re interested in coming in to use the Prayer Labyrinth, please check with our church office for days and times that are available.

Choir & HandChimes

Choir & HandChimes

Music has the power to touch and move us, empower and connect us in a way no other creative medium can, and in recognizing this, we consider it an integral part of worship and community life at Ladner United Church. Along with the preaching and liturgy that are integral to our worship services, music helps to connect one part to the next, weaving together the creation of a unified and communal offering to God each time we meet.

The Ladner United Church Choir, also known as the “Voices of Vision,” are a dedicated and community-minded group of individuals who offer their voices in song to assist congregational singing for our services. Each choir member comes from a very diverse vocal background, some have had vocal training and some can’t read music, but they strive to build each other up to achieve their best individual potential. All are welcome to sing in the choir, no audition is necessary, the only requirement is the wish to worship God with your voice! Rehearsals are Thursday nights from 6:15-7:45 pm

If singing isn’t your gift, perhaps ringing is, and we have a HandChime choir that rehearses weekly, also assisting in worship on a regular basis. No audition is required for this group either, and they meet Thursdays from 4:45-6pm.

There are many other ways in which you can offer whatever musical talents you might have – just talk to Marcus, our Minister of Music, for possible opportunities to offer your gifts and talents.

Sunday @3!

Sunday @3!

Watch for a concert every month! Normally on the first Sunday of each month (September through June) at 3pm, we have a different musician or musical group in to perform for the community at a reasonable price. This is our way of giving back to the community in the form of quality music and an opportunity for friends and family to spend time together!

All are welcome, so please pass on the word to friends and family. Admission is $10 each. For the latest concert info, check out our social media or contact the church office.
