We pride ourselves on being a welcoming congregation, and hope you feel at home among us.
If you haven’t already visited us, the best way to learn more is to attend a Sunday worship service. Services are held Sunday mornings at 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. September through June, and at 10:15 a.m. during July and August. Nursery care and religious education classes for children of all ages are held at 11:15, except in the summer, when only childcare is available. We are located at 700 Hartford Turnpike, Hamden, CT.
As you enter our building, you can pick up a guest packet, sign up to receive our e-newsletter on a guest form, and meet other members and guests. You can go into our sanctuary and enjoy the quiet before the service, or explore the information and displays available in our social hall next door. After the service we offer a coffee hour in the social hall, where members of USNH are available at the Welcome Center table to answer questions you may have about the congregation and our activities.
Pathways to Membership Class
Four times each year we offer a three-session course on Unitarian Universalism and our congregation called Pathways to Membership. This class deepens newcomers’ understanding of our denomination and congregation through a brief overview of our history and beliefs. It’s also a great way to meet other interested newcomers and members and reflect on your own beliefs.
Virtually all our work and activities — both within the congregation and in the wider community — are open to guests as well as to members, so we encourage you to become involved in a way that appeals to your interests, talents, and time. We offer many ways to spiritually grow, including our religious education classes for adults and children, the Small Groups Ministry program, and monthly evening worship and socializing at our Vespers service. There are many social activities here at the Unitarian Society as well, from our Halloween pumpkin carving party to a staging of The Laramie Project to our social justice work in the community.
