Who We Are
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Wakefield is the spiritual home to a congregation of theologically diverse people, open to and respectful of a variety of spiritual ideas and interpretations, while leaning slightly toward Humanism within a Judeo-Christian ethic. We have no creed and impose no belief test, welcoming people of any theological persuasion, occupation, ethnicity, and lifestyle. Many of us are active in civic activities and nonprofit organizations based both in Wakefield and beyond.
We welcome all persons regardless of race, economic status, theological or political perspective, and other distinctions that keep us from embracing our common humanity. We acknowledge that we still have work to do and we welcome your advice.
As Unitarian Universalists, we strive to fully understand, embrace and live by The Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism in all aspects of our lives:
• The worth and dignity of every person
• Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
• Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
• A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
• The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
• The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
• Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
We are proud to be a Welcoming Congregation. Having fulfilled the requirements of our denomination to be a Welcoming Congregation, the Wakefield UU Church is intentional about celebrating the presence and full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons in all aspects of congregational life.
