Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley!
We need not think alike to love alike. Most of the members of UUCB were not born UU. Ours is a chosen faith. We come from many other faith traditions—and from no religion at all. We come in search of answers to questions like these...
How can I lead a deeper spiritual life?
How can I be engaged with something beyond day to day, secular life?
How can I be part of a community of meaning and purpose?
Worship is central to the life of this community. The Sunday service lifts us out of our daily routines and helps us live our UU principles in the week ahead. Throughout the week, members gather together in Chalice Circles to share the experience of worship and spiritual exploration in small groups. Because it is non-creedal and draws its inspiration from many sources, Unitarian Universalism is a chosen faith for many people who identify as Buddhist, Humanist, Christian, Jewish and others.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley is located in the Berkeley Hills at 1 Lawson Road, Kensington, California.

From Oakland and Points South
Take Fwy 80-East (toward Sacramento). In El Cerrito (past both Berkeley and Albany), exit at "Central Avenue." Turn right on Central and continue on through several traffic lights to San Pablo Ave. Turn left on San Pablo Avenue and continue five blocks to Moeser Lane. Turn right on Moeser Lane. Continue on Moeser Lane in the left hand lane about a 1 ½ mile drive up a very steep hill. Moeser Lane ends at Arlington Boulevard which will be your first stop sign. (There are tall, electrical towers and a sign for the "Unitarian Church" at this intersection.) Go directly across Arlington Boulevard. This automatically places you on Terrace. Continue for one short block and take the first right on Craft. Continue another short block and take the first left on Lawson. (Craft dead-ends here and there is a large sign for the church.) Continue up the hill on Lawson Road until you come to the parking lot by the main entrance to the church.
Are all people welcome in this congregation?
We strive to respect and welcome all people.
Are there people in the congregation who hold diverse beliefs?
Unitarian Universalists affirm a diversity of religious ideas and support spiritual development guided by freedom, reason, and conscience.
What goes on during the Sunday services?
Services vary, yet regularly include elements which celebrate our values in words, music, silence, story, and song. We have an excellent music program.
How do I meet other people? How do I get involved?
Attend a service. You will be greeted at the door and can learn about small group opportunities for education and spiritual growth. Stay for coffee and conversation following the service.
