The Unitarian Universalist Church in Meriden is a welcoming and caring community which celebrates and upholds its commitment to diversity in beliefs, background, and life experience, while challenging ourselves and others to seek justice through loving action.
With historical roots which spring from the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalists believe that the personal conscience and experience of each individual are the final authorities in matters of faith.  Rather than subscribing to a single religious creed or doctrine, we strive to keep our minds open to the questions humans have asked across all cultures since the beginning of civilization.  Ours is a faith in action.  We work to make our principles of human dignity, compassion, and justice more alive in this world.  We believe in love.
