Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, KY


We are building a caring community, open to all, that treasures free thought, joyful celebration, life-long learning and generous service.

OUR Mission

We live our U.U. values by acting for human dignity and equality and environmental justice for all creatures.

OUR Purpose

We welcome all without regard to race, creed, age, economic status, physical ability, gender expression, or sexual orientation. These are some of the categories that have divided, rather than united, people of faith.

Please Join Us for Our Sunday Service. The theme for the summer is AdventureChildcare available for infants and toddlers starting at 9 a.m. on Sundays

July 3, 11 a.m. "Beginner’s Mind: The Micro-Macro of Socially-Engaged Buddhism" Worship Leader: Sundy Sangha.

Please bring a hearty dish to share, and join us for fellowship this Sunday. This is a great time to meet people in the community. As always, visitors and newcomers are invited to be first in line! Sign up to volunteer to help with setup, serving, or cleanup.

Can’t make it to church?  Want to revisit the sermon?  Now all of the sermons delivered by Rev. Brian are available online!  There’s an option to subscribe so they are emailed to you every week and they will be updated every Monday.

First Sunday Lunch

We are looking for a few volunteers to help with set-up, serving and clean-up for our First Sunday Potluck. Set up before church between 10 and 11. Cleanup and Strike happen after service is over, between 1 and 2.

Help us continue with this wonderful tradition by volunteering your time. You don't have to be a member to help out! 

This week we are Giving Away the Plate to Refugee Ministries.

About our church

Our church was designed by noted architect Herb Greene and is situated on 7.5 acres of green in Lexington, Kentucky.  The largest Unitarian Universalist church in the region, UUCL has been a constant voice for religious tolerance and education for more than sixty-five years.


About our faith

Unitarian Universalism has its roots in Protestant Christian theology but affirms the wisdom and value of all faiths as well as the importance of intellectual inquiry. In our churches, no one is asked to ascribe to any creed; each of us finds Truth in our own way, and each of us is responsible for our own journey. We come together so that we may learn from each other, and so that we may share our joys and our sorrows along the way.
