We're glad you found us. Gathered in 1854 by Universalists who embraced a theology of all-inclusive love, our church has a rich history and a tradition of extending its liberal religious message to the greater community. Our members come from all over the Central Connecticut area.
We are A Liberal Religious Community Celebrating Diversity and Love
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.
Voices of a Liberal Faith - About Unitarian Universalism
Each week 25% of the undesignated cash offerings in the Sunday collection plate are donated to a worthwhile community organization chosen by the Social Justice Council.
For the month of August the recipient will be The Alzheimer’s Association, CT Chapter. The Association is the primary information and support organization for the thousands of Connecticut residents dealing with this debilitating disease. The organization runs a multilingual helpline, and provides family care consultation, support and training.
