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.

Upcoming Services

May 21- Always Growing
9 & 11

Worship Leaders: Rev. Mara and Andre Mol, Ministerial Intern
Worship Associate: Rebecca Gurney

This Sunday, we'll explore how spiritual growth unfolds through the course of our lives. Sometime, we are lulled into thinking we're gone growing - then life offers us a new invitation to stretch minds, hearts and spirits. Andre will offer a reflection, as the first year of his internship with us concludes, and Rev. Mara will preach. At both services, we will also enjoy the musical gifts of our children's choir and have a chance to celebrate our RE stewards. Our 11am service will also feature music from our adult choir, and we will welcome new folks into membership.

May 28
One Service at 10 a.m.
