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

April 20, 9am and 11am “When Life Returns: A Multigenerational Easter Service” Rev. Mara Dowdall and Martha Dallas
This Easter, we will celebrate the high holiday of our birth tradition with a Unitarian Universalist spirit. In an interactive service for all ages and inspired by the original story of Jesus’ resurrection, we will explore real-life stories of rebirth, renewal, and returning life, enjoy the musical gifts of our children’s and adult choirs, and sing favorite Easter hymns. The Easter egg hunt will take place between services.
