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 Minister

History is a series of stories, often told by "the winner". For much of the history of the past 2000 years, that has meant a Western-dominated mindset that has privileged certain stories and viewpoints, often including a lot of military and civil power struggles, often by men Only in the past few decades have we begun to interrogate those histories with a critical view, leading to new understandings of our own stories as North Americans/Westerners, as UUs, and as people of faith.

We are a Social Justice
Loving Congregation!

Social justice is a long tradition in our congregation; going back to the 1960s when the congregation worked with other community groups to fight "redlining". As we work actively in the Black Lives Matter movement, UUMtAiry has a strong, spiritual commitment to love and justice.
