Who Are We?We at Restoration, sometimes also called UUCR, are a welcoming, religiously diverse, intentionally multi-cultural faith community, chartered in 1820 in Philadelphia and based im Mount Airy since 1938. Join us for Sunday services each week in our air-conditioned sanctuary at 11 am and for our coffee hour afterwards. Sunday school and child care are available. Summer services are followed by a potluck coffee hour.
Restoration is now Handicapped Accessible!
Restoration features a ramp to the main sanctuary and a recently completed wheelchair lift to the Social Hall beneath. A handicapped restroom has been created on the lower level to make our Fellowship Hall more accessible to our congregants, visitors and renters. CHECK HERE for photos.

We welcome people from any religious background who seek personal and spiritual growth in an extended family atmosphere.
Our denomination has no creed or doctrinal tests. All who are in sympathy with our beliefs and are willing to join us in supporting the goals of this church and the principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association are welcomed into membership.
Social justice is a long tradition at Restoration. Going back to the 1960s when the congregation worked with other community groups to fight "redlining" in Mt. Airy until today, as we work actively in the Black Lives Matter movement, Restoration has a strong, spiritual commitment to love and justice.
Restoration recently voted to become a member of POWER Philadelphia and we have long participated in the work of UUPLAN. If you would like to get more involved, or simply get more information, please feel free to contact the Director of Community and Social Justice Ministries, María E. McCabe.
The Greater Philly UU Cluster (GPC) represents 14 nearby UU congregations and is actively connecting these congregations to share our message, grow our faith and strengthen congregations. Check out our Annual Reports to learn more about what we've been doing. As we look ahead, GPC will play a larger role for our congregations as the UUA regionalization moves forward.
Check out our GPC google calendar to attend events at the other cluster congregations. For example, the weekly Black Lives Matter vigil at UU Restoration on Thursdays at 6pm.
