Who We Are
Westminster Unitarian Church is a Welcoming Congregation member of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. We care about our members, our neighbors, and the world around us. We are a member congregation of the Ballou Channing District of the UUA.
We are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers. We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history, and spirituality, but aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good. We have a track record of standing on the side of love, justice, and peace.
We have radical roots and a history as self-motivated spiritual people: we think for ourselves and recognize that life experience influences our beliefs more than anything.
We need not think alike to love alike. We are people of many beliefs and backgrounds: people with a religious background, people with none, people who believe in a God, people who don’t, and people who let the mystery be.
As a UUA Welcoming Congregation, we welcome all individuals without regard to race, color, physical challenge, sexual orientation, age, or national origin.
On the forefront of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer inclusion for more than 40 years, we are people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
We welcome you: your whole self, with all your truths and your doubts, your worries and your hopes. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith.
Westminster Unitarian Church began on January 5, 1828, at a private home in Providence, Rhode Island. Over the course of 130 years, our church occupied several locations in Providence. In 1958, with many members now living south of the capital, the church relocated to the town of East Greenwich. Our beautiful sanctuary sits atop “Sunset Ridge” on the corner of Kenyon and First Avenues.
