Who are We?   We are a religiously diverse, LGBTQ+ embracing, intentionally multiracial and multicultural Unitarian Universalist faith community.
In our congregation, we journey together in Love toward restoring spiritual wholeness. We were founded as a Universalist church in central Philadelphia in 1820 and relocated to the Mount Airy neighborhood in 1938. Join us for Sunday Services weekly in our air-conditioned sanctuary at 11am, followed by our coffee hour. Sunday school and child care are available. Summer services offer a potluck coffee hour.

We welcome people from any religious background who seek personal and spiritual growth in an extended family

atmosphere. Our denomination has no creed or doctrinal tests. All who are in sympathy with our beliefs and are willing to join us in supporting the goals of this church and the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association are welcomed into membership.

Our building is now accessible to people with disabilities!
It features a ramp to the main sanctuary and a wheelchair lift to the Social Hall beneath. Two accessible restrooms have been created: one on the main level of the Hale Building and another on the lower level of the sanctuary to make our Fellowship Hall more accessible to our congregants, visitors and renters.

From our Intern Minister

sometimes... as it did this week... when the tragedies of the world are so profound and the struggles in my inner circle so heartbreaking... my resilience... my ability to recover from or withstand difficulties or to spring back into shape begins to wane... and my internal resistance... my defense mechanisms which pull me inwards and short circuit my vulnerability begin to wax... and this sometimes leads to thoughts which are so helpful when you want to transform self and to be a part of the wave of Liberating Love that transforms the world... the "yeah, but," the "will it?" and the "i don't know."
