Welcome to the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington. For more than 200 years we have been a religious home for open-minded and big-hearted Vermonters. We are diverse in our thinking and beliefs, but we are united in our desire to live out the principles of Unitarian Universalism. We support each other in our religious and spiritual explorations, drawing on many different sources.


We have no creed. We create our community around a shared covenant or promise:

We are united in our commitment to live out our mission to inspire spiritual growth, to care for each other and our community, to seek truth, and to act for justice.

Our iconic building sits at the top of the Church Street Market Place, inviting all to worship, fellowship, justice-making, and compassionate care. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people––of whatever age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical ability, or sexual orientation––into our Beloved Community.

We hope you’ll continue to explore our website and join us this Sunday.

June Worship

July 5 - 10 a.m. - Love Into Being

Desmond Tutu describes ubuntu as a way of proclaiming: "My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in yours."  We gather to contemplate the journey of our lives and celebrate those whose lives are inextricably bound up in our own -- those whose love has brought us into being. 

Andre Mol is a candidate for UU ministry and currently attends seminary at Meadville Lombard Theological School.  Through his varied experiences in filmmaking, leadership development, and seminary, he has become interested in exploring the role of transformative stories and dialogue in our spiritual lives.  He lives in Brandon, VT with his wife and two young children.
