We are Unitarian Universalists,
or UU's for short. We are people of all ages and walks of life who live
in Billerica and nearby
towns. We come from a variety of religious backgrounds - mainly
Christian and Jewish. We have a wide range of religious beliefs. Some
of us are newcomers, while some are long time U.U.'s. We cherish the
universal truths taught by the great teachers in every time and
tradition. We welcome diversity of religious opinion, yet we seek a
strengthened spirituality for ourselves. We want the opportunity to consider religious questions with others who are not always certain they have all the answers.
Our Mission Statement
(Diversity Statement): "This Congregation affirms and promotes the full
participation of persons in all our activities and endeavors, including
membership, programming, hiring practices, and the calling of religious
professionals, without regard to race, color, gender, physical or
mental challenge, affectional or sexual orientation, age, class,
national origin, or political affiliation."
We have a strong commitment to accessibility. If you have problems with this web site please send email to Webmaster stating what is not working for you.

11:00am "Journey to Environmetal Justice", Fred Small
For decades, too many of us have viewed the struggles against pollution and systemic racism as unrelated or even at odds. In this time of pandemic and antiracist uprising, more and more people are coming to understand the inescapable connections between these movements. Rev. Small will tell his own story and invite us all into more powerful activism.
A Unitarian Universalist pastor, singer-songwriter, and former environmental lawyer, Rev. Fred Small is Executive Director of MassachusettsInterfaith Power & Light, which mobilizes people of faith as climate activists. He also serves as Minister for Climate Justice at Arlington Street Church, Boston. Website: https://www.revfredsmall.com/
