Located in Columbia’s historic Shandon community, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia is a progressive and inclusive religious congregation that affirms and promotes a free and responsible search for truth and meaning; the dignity and worth of every person; a more just, equitable, and compassionate society; and respect for interdependent web of all existence.

We do not require anyone to believe the same as one another, understanding that there are many paths to meaning. The mission of the UUCC is to nurture and respect each other in our spiritual growth and pursuit of meaning and to create a welcoming and engaging environment through which we work for positive change in the community and the world.

While we are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, we strive to make a difference for the good, standing on the side of love, justice, and peace. That UUCC is designated a Welcoming Congregation, means we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning individuals. Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or have stopped in before, we are glad to see you! We are located at 2701 Heyward Street in the Shandon area of Columbia (click the link on the top of the page for directions and map). Our church building is wheelchair accessible.

Our worship services and Sunday school for children and youth are at 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
