We are a compassionate, thoughtful, and diverse religious community who nurture and challenge each other to deeper understanding, meaning and purpose in our lives. We use our hearts and our heads (and a good dose of humor) to make a difference not only in our lives, but the lives of those beyond our doors. We encourage you to learn more about our beliefs, our services, and our history in the About Us tab. Visitors are always warmly welcomed to our worship services!

String theory attempts to unify the forces in the universe into one unified theory. Stephen Hawking famously said that such a theory would be “the ultimate triumph of human reason – for then we should know the mind of God”. Wow.

Visiting Our Church
We meet for worship each Sunday at 10:30 AM. You may enter the church either through the Sanctuary doors that face onto West Ferry Street, or through the Garden Entrance (handicap accessible) that is set back from the sidewalk at West Ferry and Elmwood Avenue (map), inside our lawn and garden area.
We have greeters at both entrances, and a welcome table in the parish hall if you'd like more information or have questions.

UUCB July-August Share-the-Plate: Recycle-A-Bike
"Recycle-A-Bicycle is GObike Buffalo's award winning educational program for children of all ages that can be found in several Buffalo City Schools and community centers. Participants in the program receive a donated bicycle from our Community Workshop and strip it down part-by-part to the frame. With the help of trained instructors, students reassemble the bike while learning bicycle mechanics, tool use, and important problem solving skills. Upon completion of their bicycles participants are taught the rules of the road, proper riding etiquette, road safety, and how to plan to travel from place to place on two wheels using our city's bike paths and bicycle infrastructure. Each class goes on a group ride around the surrounding neighbor hood to practice these skills and test ride the bikes they built. Participants also receive a set of lights, a lock, and a helmet to go along with their newly recycled bikes."
