ANNUAL MEETING: Sunday, June 2: to read more...
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

Friends,
Ted Lasso is a feel-good tv show that came out in 2020 during the first lockdown period of our Covid journey. It's a show that has meant so much to so many people for its portrayal of human relationships, trauma, humor, grief, and loss. It's also a show about a white guy with an accent who loves sports and relentlessly optimistic... you might see where I'm going with this, but it's a show that I deeply identify with.

This Sunday, we'll explore the good news of this fun and funny tv show, and we'll inquire about the deeper notes and meaning of a story about an American football coach who moves to England to coach a soccer team...    to continue reading...

The Lonely Playground

I have lived most of my life in Pennsylvania, so I am alternately cranky and grateful about our weather. When I arrive at our facilities, I see the playground and I think that it looks lonely and is longing for children and adults to come and play there. Perhaps that is my imagination. However, what is true is that I am longing to be outside with our young people. Back to the weather ~ it has been raining or cold on Sundays...
