Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia! If you’ve been searching for a different kind of church— one that is accepting, relevant to your life, active in the world, and grounded in love and justice—you have found the right place. Or if you are already familiar with the denomination or have relocated to Columbia, we invite you to join us in our efforts to put love to work in the world through acts of compassion and justice.
Although having a Judeo-Christian heritage, the UUCC embraces many beliefs and religious traditions, is welcoming of all genders and sexual orientations , and, increasingly, is accessible to people of all abilities.
For now, we must hold our meetings via Zoom. You can contact our Administrator for access information or Phil Turner for help in getting started. Once we get back to normal, when you enter our front doors at 2701 Heyward Street for the 11:00 Sunday worship service, you will be met by a Greeter who will offer you a visitor’s name tag, explain our assistance devices, and, if you have children attending with you and are interested, introduce you to our director of religious exploration or her representative. A nursery is provided for infants through two years of age; older children remain with their parents for the first part of the service.
After the Zoom service, you can stick around to meet members and friends in small groups. Again, when the world turns right-side up again, after a service you are invited to stop by the Welcome Table in our Social Hall. The Welcome Table is staffed by our Membership Committee who can answer questions about Unitarian Universalism and provide additional information about our congregation and its current activities and events, including orientations for visitors and newcomers.
