Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism.

The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford.We hope you will join us.

August 3:

Deepening Care

by Rev. Gregory Wilson

In this sermon we will explore
ways of understanding the deep
contours of relationship dynamics
and how to care for the well-being
of ourselves and the other.

August 17:

The Detachment Wheel

led by Rev. Gregory Wilson

The Detachment Wheel: a simple
exercise in letting go and breathing
deep. Bring colored pencils, chalk,
inks, and paper if you can.
