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.  

 UU Spiritual Theme Circles

Spiritual Theme Circles are geared toward deepening FUUSB members’ and friends’ spiritual exploration and experience. The small reflection Circles consist of up to 11 participants and a trained facilitator who meet for one two-hour monthly session over a five month period. Participants should be at least 16 or a high school junior. We hold two “Circle seasons” per year.
