The First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn is a joyful, loving, religious community that inspires and empowers people to Grow spiritually, Care for one another, and Work for social justice and stewardship of the earth – Adopted May 17, 2015

The First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn has been meeting regularly in Brooklyn Heights since 1833 and worshiping in our historic Gothic revival sanctuary since 1844.

We are located on Pierrepont Street and Monroe Place in Brooklyn Heights, NY, in a shady, quiet residential neighborhood just over the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan. The main entrance to the Sanctuary is on Pierrepont Street. The church office (and official mailing address) is 48 Monroe Place, Brooklyn, NY 11201 , just around the corner from the public entrance. 

Worship services are held every Sunday at 11:00.  Please visit our worship page for more information.

We are easily reached by subway, F train to Jay Street,  A to High Street,  4, 5 and R to Borough Hall and 2, 3 to Clark Street.  There is generally street parking on Sundays, but leave enough travel time to find a spot.  You do not need to feed the meters on Sundays.

We are a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), which has a liberal spiritual philosophy that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places.

We welcome families of all kinds with children of all ages.  We have a vibrant Religious Education program, an active coming of age program for teens and childcare for the youngest members of our community.

We have a fantastic music program that makes wonderful use of our historic pipe organ as part of our worship service and we feature many special music services throughout the year to celebrate jazz, folk, classical and traditional music.

Our Queer Caucus, Young Adult Ministry, and Women’s Leadership Alliance offer opportunities for people to gather, work for social justice, share their personal and spiritual stories and connect deeply with one another. 

If you are are visiting us for the first time please visit our newcomers’ page.  We want you to be an honored guest.  Please join us for a cup of fair trade coffee or tea and visit our welcome table after the worship service.
