On Our Way to The People’s Climate March

The First Unitarian Congregational Society (First U) has been meeting in Brooklyn Heights since 1833 and worshiping in our Gothic Revival sanctuary since 1844.

Our third Unitarian Universalist principle is acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations. We believe that spiritual growth happens everywhere, especially in relationships and connections with one another.  We provide many opportunities for individual and collective spiritual growth at First U through participation in Sunday morning worship, conversations during our fellowship hour with fair trade coffee & tea, small group interaction, forums and workshops on issues of justice and concern, as well as many additional opportunities for social engagement with new friends.

Our Right Relations Covenant informs our behavior toward one another.  We agree to be kind, fair, responsible, and to “assume good intentions” in all of our interactions.

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 young adults, as well as childcare for the youngest members of our community. 

We are a part of the UUA Welcoming Congregation Program. We welcome bisexual, gay, lesbian, and transgender people to our congregation, to participate fully as a part of our community, our celebrations, and our collective efforts to work for social justice.  

Our Director of Membership and Communication, Garnett Losak, is available to help you to find activities that bring you joy.  Garnett can be reached at or by calling the church office.
