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 Services

January 22: “Marching on the Side of Love”
Rev. Peter Farriday
The summer of 1967 was such an extraordinary moment in the collective American psyche that it went down in history as the “Summer of Love.” Nearly 50 years on, however, one could easily ask, as more than one pop song has, “Where is the Love?” The nationwide Women’s March on January 21 has one response: it’s in each person who champions the freedom, safety and well being of all people. Join us for heartfelt reflections on the march and all that it stands for.

Jan 29: "Our Religious Traditions:  Mixing the Old and the New"
Michael Hart
Many UUs spend part of their lives in another religious tradition that they continue to find value in.  How can we simultaneously find meaning in our UU covenant AND the religious beliefs that gave us so much comfort at other times in our lives? 

Feb 19: Mark Your Calendars
After service join us for our second "Hymn Sing" led by music director Scott Roewe from 11:45 to 12:15. We will explore Unitarain Universalist hymns from the past, present and future! Lend your voice or come to listen.
