  • Greetings from The Unitarian Church in Westport
  • HOW TO FIND US

“Love is the spirit of this church, and service its law.
This is our great covenant; to dwell together in peace,
to seek the truth in love, and to help one another.”

Unitarian Universalism is a “living tradition” that draws upon the wisdom of the world’s religions. If you asked one of our children what kind of person a Unitarian Universalist is she might tell you that a Unitarian Universalist is a person with an “open mind, helping hands, and loving heart”. An adult might tell you that we affirm, “freedom, reason and tolerance”.
