ANNUAL MEETING: Sunday, June 2: to read more...
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

Friends,
As we get ready to close out our congregational year, and move into summer and fall….we move towards an anxious and fretful time in our nation’s history. Democracy is once again at stake in a big national election. Whether you choose to do Get Out The Vote work, participate in rallies and protests, provide nourishment and comfort to people on Sunday mornings, or engage in prayer and meditation as your form of activism, please know that we need it all to build the world we dream about. This spring has been dedicated to providing spiritual resources to manage our growing anxiety and nervousness about the November Election. Please take this list in that spirit.

Religious Exploration
RE Corner

This month’s theme, The Gift of Pluralism, is an opportunity to learn more about our individual spiritual/religious lineage and that of our beloved faith tradition, Unitarian Universalism.

Last week, through arts and crafts and stories, we explored the roots of our pluralistic UU faith: World Religions, Awe and Wonder, Science and Reason, Judaism and Christianity, Earth-Based Traditions, and People’s Stories. Please come up to the classroom on the second floor before or after Sunday’s service to see a depiction of our UU Faith Tree. This week we will explore through art, singing, and stories our shared values that were lifted up from our Association’s Article II work.
