Updated as of April 2, 2020!
We have suspended in-person gatherings until at least April 11, 2020 and have moved online. After several weeks of streaming worship via Facebook Live on our Facebook Page (where you can still find the recorded services), as of April 5 we are switching to Zoom for worship services. To participate live, watch the weekly Foreword email blast for links and dial-in info for Zoom. (If you are not on our email list and would like to be, you can sign up here.) All recorded services will be uploaded to our YouTube channel. You can subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notifications when new videos are posted; we aim to get them posted the same day as the live service. These videos also appear on our Sermons page.
Please see our Up and Coming page for updates.
Welcome to Westside Unitarian Universalist Church
Westside UU is a young and thriving church just south of downtown Fort Worth, dedicated to providing a full program of activities that nourish the mind and spirit. We are a community united by a covenant of mutual respect and care and the pursuit of spiritual freedom.
On Sundays, we celebrate together with music and singing, as well as in teaching from the rich traditions of many faiths. We are dedicated to the religious education of children as well as adults, and offer a complete program of classes for all ages on Sunday.
Throughout the week, we provide support and space for a number of groups. Some are dedicated to causes such as social justice and women's rights; some explore religious history; others simply let us connect with each other through crafts, book discussions, yoga and meditation, and other interests.
Membership in our church is open to any person 18 years or older who is in sympathy with our purposes and programs and with the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism. It is specifically understood that membership is open to all qualified persons regardless of race, color, sex, disability, affectional or sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, age or national origin.
Come and be a part of our growing community. Our doors are open to you!
Our Mission Statement
Westside Unitarian Universalist Church makes a positive difference in the lives of our members, our families, and the world at large through supportive relationships, religious and intellectual exploration, and social action.
Westside Unitarian Universalist Church will continue to grow and continue to become a more influential liberal religious presence through active service to our community and the world at large.
Our Covenant of Right Relations
We covenant to build a religious community guided by compassion and sustained by respectful relationships. Believing that building healthy relationships is a spiritual practice, we aim to listen appreciatively, speak with care, express gratitude, appreciate our differences, and assume good intentions. We endeavor to communicate directly, honestly, and thoughtfully. When we hurt one another, we will actively seek reconciliation, make amends and reconnect in a spirit of love. We strive to build and sustain our community by sharing our minds, hearts, and helping hands. Thus do we covenant with one another.
