Who We Are


Welcome to the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Middleboro, a church that puts love at the very heart of our lives together. We welcome diversity in all its forms and persuasions. We work together to build a world that is more loving and more just for all people.

Our rainbow banner lets it be known that we are a Welcoming Congregation, which means we celebrate and affirm gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons.

We are an accredited Green Sanctuary, indicating our commitment to address climate change and environmental justice.

The flaming chalice, lit at the beginning of every service, is our Unitarian Universalist symbol of love, hope, freedom, and faith in action. Our unique rendering of it indicates our understanding that it is only through our shared efforts that we make these things possible.

To create and sustain a welcoming and caring community that embodies our UU principles, inspires spiritual growth without dogma or creed, and promotes and serves racial and social justice.

Seven Principles guide the faith of Unitarian Universalists. These include a commitment to:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
