Welcome to Community Unitarian Universalists in Brighton (CUUB). With a deep commitment to honoring the inherent worth and dignity of every person, we come together as a congregation of open minds, loving hearts, and helping hands. We are unified by our shared search for spiritual growth, and our historically strong commitment to social justice. Whatever your age, race, or sexual orientation, you are welcome here. We invite you to join us in our free and responsible search for truth and meaning.
Inspiration from Everywhere and Anywhere
We recognize the diversity of our spiritual paths and beliefs, and offer a welcoming home for modern individuals and families who may struggle with singular dogma. We are united by shared values, not by creed. We affirm and honor each individual's spiritual exploration.

Deeds, Not Creeds
Tis A Gift To Be Simple
Sunday, November 24th, Rev. Karen McFarland
The current buzzword is "minimalizing." The old Shaker hymn can point the way to minimizing, simplifying, or downsizing; whatever we decide to call it. 'Tis the season to ponder many of our lifestyles of too much "stuff." But did you know there are other words to the hymn? Let's examine our habits and preconceived ideas about simplifying as we enter the largest consumer season of the year.
