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   

July Worship

July 26 - 10 a.m. - "Morning of Music and Poetry"

According to Leonard Cohen, "Poetry is just the evidence of life.  If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash."  UUs know that prophetic words come in sonnets, limericks, and free verse, be it by Keats or Kerouac, Shakespeare or Shel Silverstein.  This light summer service of words, voices, and music is an annual UU summer tradition.  If you would like to read something, whether a poem you wrote or one by another author, please contact Worship Associates Rebecca Gurney or Melinda Lee.

August 2 - 10 a.m. - "Bridge to the New Era"
Rev. Dawn Skjei Cooley is the minister of First Unitarian Church in Louisville, KY. Her passions include institutional/congregational development, working for social justice, and being an evangelist for Unitarian Universalism. She is looking forward to visiting Burlington for the first time!
