Welcome to The Unitarian Church in Westport! As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that learning is a life-long journey. We ask the big questions that challenge us to grow, and we embrace the mysteries that encourage us to accept one another and view all life as a gift for which we are grateful.
“All people are lovable beings of infinite worth, imbued with powers of the soul. We are obligated to use our gifts, talents, and potentials in the service of life.
Unitarian Universalism affirms all families, of origin and of choice. Parents and caregivers find support to embrace their role as children’s primary religious educators—to open authentic conversations with children about difficult topics—to grow in faith together through religious practices, truth-seeking, justice work, service projects, and more.
While UU family ministry comes in many shapes and sizes, at its core, UU family faith development is a journey of relationships. Family members connect and reconnect with one another, the faith community, and the universe itself to discover and rediscover a seeking, active faith.” source: uua.org
