What is Unitarianism?
Unitarianism is a liberal non-creedal faith that welcomes you with all your uncertainties, questions and doubts.
With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion. That is; a religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves. We are a “non-creedal” religion we do not ask anyone to subscribe to a creed.

We think this video does a great job of explaining who we are. Our group is smaller than the ones in these videos, but the expression of beliefs is similar to what you will hear during our services.

At the opening of Unitarian Universalist worship services, many congregations light a flame inside a chalice. This flaming chalice has become a well-known symbol of our denomination. It unites our members in worship and symbolises the spirit of our work.
