Overview | Directions
The Unitarian Society of New Haven is a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association, which includes over a thousand congregations through the United States and Canada. With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion — that is, a religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places.
The Unitarian Society of New Haven includes over 400 adult members and 140 children and youth, drawn from many towns in the greater New Haven area. Our religious community thrives on diversity, and many of our members were raised in other religious traditions and bring with them a variety of spiritual perspectives. We are single or married, with or without children, of various sexual orientations. Our facilities are handicapped accessible and our sanctuary is equipped with a hearing loop for those who require additional amplification. We welcome and affirm bisexual, gay, lesbian and transgender persons and their friends. We are an anti-racist congregation with a team of members actively engaged in helping us challenge racial barriers in our larger society and within our congregation.
Each Unitarian Universalist congregation is self-governing. Authority and responsibility is vested in the membership of the congregation. The Unitarian Society is administered by an elected Board of Trustees and Officers and a paid staff.
