About Us


The Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist is a place to pursue personal spiritual growth and to engage in the joys and struggle of helping create a more just society and world. Together we find strength, comfort and hope in our diverse, caring community. We believe in helping each individual fulfill his or her potential and provide sanctuary for such a personal journey.

Our congregation is one of a handful of Unitarian Universalist congregations across the continent with significant racial, economic and cultural diversity. We affirm the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Welcoming Congregation Program and honor diversity of affectional orientation.

For a video introduction to Unitarian Universalism you can view http://uumetrony.org/ This is a link to the DVD “Voices of a Liberal Faith.”

Get Involved
Becoming involved in the activities that appeal to you is the best way to get to know others and to gain the satisfaction of being a part of the community that is the Community Church. Personal religious growth is enhanced not only by participating regularly in common worship but also by mutual sharing of ideas and feelings with others in small groups and by service to others. We invite you to join in those programs and activities of your choice and to explore with us the breadth and depth of liberal religion here at The Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist.
