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.  



Holiday Bazaar Helpers still needed.


The Holiday Bazaar is scheduled for Saturday, December 6 from  9 am to 2 pm. We are looking for a few more friendly volunteers to help on the day of the Bazaar downstairs.  It's easy!! Just look friendly and keep the items looking nice so they will go home with a shopper. Please sign up for the time slot you prefer on the bulletin board in the Meetinghouse upstairs hallway or contact Carol Czina at carolczina@burlingtontelecom.net.  Thanks!.
