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   

October 4 - "Giving Life the Shape of Justice"
Special Guest, Sushma Raman, UU Service Committee Vice-President and Chief Program Officer

Worship Associate, Stephen Rainville

Seventy-five years ago, a Unitarian minister named Waitskill Sharp and his wife, Martha, traveled to Europe to help those fleeing Nazi persecution. Their work gave birth to what we know today as the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, an organization devoted to UU values and international human rights. I honor of the UUSC's 75th anniversary, we welcome to our pulpit, Sushma Raman, a long-time human rights advocate, who will help us consider the important work to which our world calls us now. You can learn more about our guest here: http://www.uusc.org/sushma-raman. We will be showing a special film about the UUSC and its history after the conclusion of the 11:00 a.m service.
