Who We Are
With over 350 members and more than 80 children and youth, drawn from the Greater New Haven area and surrounding towns, the Unitarian Society of New Haven (USNH) is a growing, vibrant faith community. We belong to the Unitarian Universalist Association, which includes over a thousand congregations through the United States and Canada.
Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion with its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions. We are proud members of a religion that keeps an open mind to the spiritual questions that people have struggled with in all times and places
You are welcome here.
Our religious community thrives on diversity. Our members were raised in many religious traditions and bring with them a variety of spiritual perspectives. We are single or married, with or without children, of various sexual orientations.
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.
USNH facilities are handicapped accessible
Your beliefs are welcome here.
In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.
We belong to a living tradition that engages love “beyond belief.” We believe that we “need not think alike to love alike.” Our members and friends identify with a variety of religious backgrounds. Many of us have chosen Unitarian Universalism; many of us were raised in this faith. The six sources of our tradition provide a powerful vision of peace, love, and understanding.
We are building an action-oriented community, drawn together by our covenant and the promises we make rather than creeds. We live our values aloud, not alone. Together, we are leading lives of justice, learning, love, and hope. Won’t you join us?
