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.

September's Theme:  Gathering

September 28th - 9 a.m. & 11 a.m.
“To See It Is To Have It”
In an oft-quoted line from the Book of Proverbs, the ancient scripture-writer observes that “where there is no vision, the people perish.” On this final Sunday of our “Gathering” month, we’ll consider the meaning and importance of “vision” in faith community. This year, the Board of Trustees will be articulating “ends” for First UU, which paint a picture of our shared values and the difference we hope to make in the world. As this work begins, we’ll explore the power and possibility of gathering around a shared vision.
