Newcomer Basics

Newcomers Often Ask:

Where are you located?

Our church building is the “castle on the hill” located at 10244 S. Longwood Dr,  at the corner of Longwood Drive and 103rd St.  Our main entrance is from the parking lot entered on Seeley Ave (a one-way going north) off of 103rd St. 

What time is your service?

Our weekly service and religious education for children is at 10:30 a.m. on Sundays. 

Where do I park?

We have a parking lot adjacent to the church with entry off of 103rd St. and Seeley Avenue.

What is your service like?

Worship services typically consist of readings from a variety of sources, hymn singing, welcoming of each other with a hand shake, a Time for All Ages, a sermon, and special music.  Each week we also share joys and concerns with each other while lighting candles.

What do you have for children?


Our religious education program for children teaches preschool through eighth graders about what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist, including respect for the worth and dignity of all people and the interdependent web of life.  The morning begins at 10:30 in the church sanctuary where children attend the beginning of the worship service with their parent or family.  Typically, a Time for All Ages story is told before the congregation sings a round of “Go Now in Peace” as the children leave for their classes in the school building adjacent to the church sanctuary.  Parents of newcomers are welcome to visit the classroom with their child.

What type of music do you have?

Our hymn singing typically is accompanied by piano and we have a wide variety of special musical offerings, including piano, guitar, harp, flute and other instrumental music.  Our choir (BUC Singers) performs periodically throughout the year and gathers in the sanctuary to practice before the service for several weeks before each performance.  Newcomers are welcome to share their musical talents with us.

What should I wear?


Come as you are.  Many of our members and visitors wear casual and comfortable attire.

What about special needs?

Our sanctuary is wheelchair accessible, and we have a sound system for better hearing.  We encourage you to talk to us about other special needs you may have.

Who will I meet there?

Our membership is very inclusive.  Whatever your age, religious background or perspective; whatever your race, or cultural, ethnic, or sexual orientation, if you are a person of good will and earnest purpose you are welcome here.  We celebrate our differences, but we are united by a common desire to think deeply, act responsibly, nurture our spirits, and help heal our world.
