Who We Are

Santa Clarita Unitarian Universalist Church liberal religion By Rev. Peter Farriday

Peter Farriday smCenturies ago in Europe, many religious scholars concluded that the Divine was a single Unity (not a three part trinity). They called themselves Unitarians. Others determined that a truly benevolent Spirit would universally love all souls despite their failings, not punish them for eternity. They became Universalists. In 1961 in the U. S., these traditions united.

Today Unitarian Universalism still honors these roots. It has also grown beyond them to draw spiritual wisdom and inspiration wherever it’s encountered: in writings and poetry ancient and modern; in nature and art; in human acts of compassion and justice. View our Six Sources.

Our “free faith” doesn’t subscribe to a static creed, because human understanding is ever-evolving. This allows us to fully embrace modern knowledge, and at the same time open our hearts to the one sacred force that animates all religious expressions.

This unfolding quest broadens our minds. It helps us to live loving lives and deal with life’s hardships. And it stirs our desire to create a more harmonious and sustainable world. View our Seven Principles.

If you resonate with these values, we hope you will grace us with a visit to a Sunday service or a social event. It’s quite possible that you will be very glad you did.

Upcoming Events

Fire Update

Thank you for all the concerned inquiries. At present, our facility is well away from the fire area, and all our members are safe. There is a great deal of smoke and ash in the area, and flames are visible in many parts of our valley. We continue to watch the situation, help those who have been evacuated and displaced in our community, and support the heroic efforts of our firefighters.

Join Us!

Upcoming Services

July 31 - “Living an Authentic Life”
Barbara Wilson
So often we are confronted with choices to do what is authentic and resonates within our souls versus doing that which is expedient. While that is hardly a new dilemma, the scale of competition for our attention often provides such powerful distraction that we can lose ourselves if not careful.

August 7 - Details Coming Soon

August 14 - Details Coming Soon

August 21 - “Waters of Life”
Rev. Farriday
“Ingathering” is what Unitarian Universalists call the service that begins each new church year, and we again celebrate with a Water Ceremony. Everyone will hold some water during this participatory ritual, so you’re encouraged to bring a cup or container to minimize paper use. (If you forget, not to worry.) Our school-age folks are also invited to bring their backpacks for a “Blessing of the Backpacks.” Join us for a joyful and reverent celebration of spiritual reconnection.

August 28: “Hope and Power in Heart-Heavy Times”
Rev. Farriday
Troubling events both global and local can shake us up. Sometimes the cumulative effects can even tilt us toward despair, and the sense that we’re powerless. But what makes the headlines isn’t the whole  story—in fact it’s not even close. Come and explore why this is the case, and how to unleash a remarkable power in you that restores hope, purpose and well-being to yourself and the world.
