Nurturing spiritual growth, celebrating the worth and dignity of all people, inspiring one another to act on our faith in the larger community.


Welcome! Please come and explore the rich spiritual and community life of South Church

Please note that during the current health crisis, we are working remotely and our services are online on our YouTube page. We are available by phone, email and online office hours, which are held Tuesday through Friday from 10a-12p. The Zoom Meeting ID is 687 008 6730. If you need to stop by the office for any reason, please reach out to us and we will schedule an appointment with you. 

Our Unitarian Universalist community offers an open search for spiritual fulfillment, meaning, and belonging. Thought-provoking worship, social justice, environmental activism, arts, music and a warm welcome are just some of what you’ll find at South Church. Come in! 

Find your spiritual home in a multi-generational community of warm fellowship, fulfilling learning, and good works.

Explore South Church through our website or, better still, join us for a Sunday morning service to see who we are and what we value. Greet the minister at the front door and worship with us in the sanctuary as we draw on many faith traditions to explore what we believe and why.

If you would like some more information, and would like us to contact you, please fill out our Visitor Form!
