Worship

"Cherry Blossoms Window"

Worship Services are held every Sunday at 11:00AM.  We believe that worship is the center of spiritual life, both for individuals and communities. At First Unitarian in Brooklyn, worship seeks to express and explore the whole range of human experience. While services usually include familiar aspects such as sermons, performed music and hymns, the content of sermons varies from atheism to Christianity, politics to literature, poetry to prose.

If you are visiting us for the first time please see our newcomer's page for useful information.

Summer services from June through August are held in the McKinney Chapel (next to the main buildng on Pierrepont street), and led by members of our congregation.
