Our Mission: Gather Inspire Transform We gather in loving community inspiring one another to transform ourselves to create a more just and compassionate world.
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 faith tradition, our services, and our history in the drop down menu tabs in the "About Us" section. Visitors are always warmly welcomed to our worship services! We'd love to meet you!
May 19, 11:00 am Life Happens Rev. Margret A. O’Neall
Life is something that happens to us, even as we are getting ready for it! On this Sunday we celebrate our Religious Education teachers, who share their wisdom to prepare our children for the lives they will lead, and we celebrated the Bridging of our graduating youth as they step across into their adult lives.
We meet for worship each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. You may enter the church either through the Sanctuary doors that face onto West Ferry Street, or through the Garden Entrance (accessible) that is set back from the sidewalk at West Ferry and Elmwood Avenue, inside our lawn and garden area. We have a welcome station with a greeter at both entrances, where you may get a name tag and find out what you would like to know about the church.
Share the Plate
In keeping with
our mission to create a more just and compassionate world, the Unitarian
Universalist Church of Buffalo shares our weekly collection plate with a local
agency, living out our generosity in the Buffalo community. The May share-the-plate recipient is Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity establishes partnerships to give a helping hand to families who otherwise would be unable to achieve their dream of ownership of a simple decent house in a safe environment. Habitat for Humanity Buffalo researches our community's needs and resources, and implements the success of Habitat's model in our community. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to pre-qualified families at no profit and with no interest charged while Habitat holds the mortgages.

Youth Group Service- Seize the Day!
Journey's End Refugee Service Home Again Project The UUCB Youth Group
Our church Youth Group has selected the Journey's End Refugee Service's Home Again Project as their service project this spring. Journey's End works to resettle refugee families that come into Buffalo every year, welcoming these weary travelers into new homes and helping them start their lives in a new city.
The Home Again Project allows groups, such as this church and our Youth Group, to be a part of this very important process. We are collecting a vast variety of household items that the congregation could help us gather. See the list of needed items for donation ideas.
