Who are We?   We are a religiously diverse, LGBTQ+ embracing, intentionally multiracial and multicultural Unitarian Universalist faith community.
In our congregation, we journey together in Love toward restoring spiritual wholeness. We were founded as a Universalist church in central Philadelphia in 1820 and relocated to the Mount Airy neighborhood in 1938. Join us for Sunday Services weekly in our air-conditioned sanctuary at 11am, followed by our coffee hour. Sunday school and child care are available. Summer services offer a potluck coffee hour.

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.

Our building is now accessible to people with disabilities!
It features a ramp to the main sanctuary and a wheelchair lift to the Social Hall beneath. Two accessible restrooms have been created: one on the main level of the Hale Building and another on the lower level of the sanctuary to make our Fellowship Hall more accessible to our congregants, visitors and renters.

From our Minister

I recently got to reconnect with one of my closest friends, whom I haven't seen in person since 2019. We got to walk along the beach and catch up on all that had happened in these past five years. It wasn't that we hadn't talked or interacted or communicated. We do that frequently, by text and social media, by phone call and zoom... although maybe not as frequently as I wish. Still, we both knew the major beats of each other's lives, but the intimate details and the quirky stories that accompany each of those instagram photos and facebook posts don't always translate across the phone.

Religious Exploration
RE Corner

Last week we began to explore the concept of Interdependence. The story of "The Grumpy Gecko" helped us to better understand how living and non-living entities are dependent on each other to thrive.

Another way of thinking about Interdependence is shown by considering the intersection of these three concepts:

Your Religious Exploration Team is eager to share how the weaving together of these concepts...
