A Member of the Unitarian Universalist Association


Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism.

The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford.We hope you will join us.

In May

Sunday, May 7, 10am. Our History Meets the Present led by Rev. Telos Whitfield.

Let's explore the roots of our tradition, the leaders and the communities that worked to forge and strengthen liberal religion and find their voices, and look to strength and insight we can draw on for today's complicated and changing times when our voices are still needed!

Sunday, May 21, 10 am, Roundtable Discussion led by Tara Bamford.

In the winter of 2012/2013, members and friends of our congregation gathered for a series of discussions to try to put into words how we see ourselves as a congregation, our vision for the future, and goals for the next five years. On the Third Sunday in May we'll take a fresh look at the narrative, discuss any changes desired, celebrate our accomplishments toward our goals, and identify next steps. Whether you were part of this effort or are new to our community, we want to hear your voices and ideas.



Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers for helping us make our Mardi Gras Fundraiser a Big Success! Proceeds are going toward the restoration of the beautiful stained glass windows in our historic church across from Barrett Hall in South Strafford.
