Due to COVID-19, the UUCPA campus is currently closed to visitors and in-person events. But there are still many ways to get to know us and to participate in community life. Read on!

Your liberal religious home

Are you looking for a community where:

  • People affirm the integrity of each person’s spiritual journey?
  • Members work towards a fair and just society?
  • You can join a supportive community for all ages?
  • Your beliefs and doubts about life’s big questions are welcome?

If the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto (UUCPA) sounds like a congregation for you, please be our guest for the next online service. During COVID, we have one online Sunday Service at 10:30 am.

To join the service via Zoom, use this link. The password is available by emailing sundayservice@uucpa.org or on UUCPA’s outgoing voicemail message, 650-494-0541. To watch the service live on our Facebook page visit: facebook.com/uucpa/live.

Religious education classes (now online) are held for people of all ages throughout the week.

(When held on campus, we have Sunday services at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m during the school year and at 10:30 a.m. in the summer. Child care and play space are available for both services. Sunday school for children and youth is held during the 9:30 service only. )

You are welcome here

We embrace many beliefs and welcome all genders and sexual orientations. Our facilities and events are increasingly accessible to people of all abilities.

We invite you to explore our website and learn about our congregation. If you would like someone to contact you, please complete the Connect with UUCPA form. We’ll follow up to answer questions and suggest programs that align with your interests. We look forward to getting to know you!

Who we are

Please see the About Us and Our Beliefs pages for more information about who we are. Below, you can also find a sermon our minister, Reverend Amy, gave a little while ago that dives into some of the many aspects of Unitarian Universalism and what opportunities are available for connection at UUCPA.

Events for Newcomers

Please join us for the online Discovering UUCPA class! Once we re-open for in-person events, we’ll resume alternating the class with Newcomer Lunches. No registration is required, just drop in. For more information on events for newcomers, please contact the church office at 650-494-0541 or uucpa@uucpa.org.

Discovering You-UCPA

When: Second Sundays every other month from 1-2pm
Where: Zoom online meeting (Meeting ID: 872 0929 2705, Passcode: 934875)
Led by: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern, Parish Minister

Are you a “new UU”?  Considering it?  Or well-acquainted with Unitarian Universalism, but new to UUCPA?  This class is offered to answer your questions and help you find your place in the life of the congregation.

Each session is on a second Sunday, following a break for lunch after the morning service.

We will:
* share the spiritual explorations that have brought us to this point;
* get to know other newcomers and the parish minister;
* learn how Unitarian Universalism and this congregation came to be;
* get a tour of the nooks and crannies of the UUCPA campus (when it reopens); and
* ask every question that’s on our minds — and even get the answers.

    • Robert Neff

      I love being part of this community — there is so much ability here, and so much sharing.

    • Linda Holroyd

      I found several things at UUCPA: connections between people who obviously cared about each other (many for decades), moments of peace and contemplation without judgment, stimulation of new ideas and different perspectives, joy at the gifts we give and receive, and hope for a better world and a better tomorrow.
