Adult Programs

Adult Programs

Our programs are designed to nurture spiritual growth and community. We welcome all members, friends and visitors to engage in any of our courses, workshops and activities.

Read the latest Adult Program Guide to see what’s available this season.  During the pandemic, programs will take place on-line if possible.

For those programs with associated fees, please make cheques payable to “First Unitarian Congregation” and write on the memo line “Adult Program” and the activity covered. A sliding scale recognizes differences in ability to pay. If you are unable to pay the stated fee for the program, talk to the program leader and adjustments will be made according to your needs.

If you need childcare, please discuss this with the group leader who will contact the adult program committee about childcare requests.

For information about our Adult Programs, contact Angela Klassen, Director of Lifespan Religious Education (DLRE) at 416-924-9654 ext 2230 or by email.

Angela Klassen – Director of Lifespan Religious Education (DLRE)

Angela Klassen

Angela joined the staff team at First Unitarian in June 2008 and recently celebrated 10 wonderful years of serving children, youth, young adults, adults and elders as Director of Lifespan Religious Education at Toronto First.

Reflecting on her early involvement as a young adult attending our Niagara and Hamilton congregations with her two young children, Angela credits these experiences with transforming the way her family engages with each other and the world. The key motivator for Angela’s work is to provide opportunities for similar experiences among all who attend our lifespan programs.

Angela has worked in the health care and non-profit sectors supporting both new ventures and legacy voluntary organizations. With an educational background in Classics and Business Administration, certificates in Volunteer Management, Congregational Leadership & Conflict Management and training in convening and facilitation, Angela served as Program Director at First Unitarian Congregation of Hamilton for four years before joining our staff team.

Angela loves to spend time in the kitchen, outdoors, making music and with family and friends.

As a white, university educated, cis-gender woman from a middle class, Protestant background Angela understands and accepts all facets of her identity as both assets and limitations to her work in the world.
