Welcome to Westside UU Church!
Our Seven Principles
We are a church where you are free to pursue your own spiritual path in an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance. In our community, what you believe is less important than how your beliefs guide your interactions with others and the world. We also strive to create a place where children can develop their ethics and principles without the fear of eternal punishment.
1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Westside is delighted to have Rev. Don Strickland as our minister. If you'd like to see him in action, you can watch recordings of his reflections on our YouTube page.

Westside Unitarian Universalist Church
We are a young and thriving church located just south of downtown Fort Worth, on 901 Page Avenue, 76110. We are united by a covenant of care, mutual respect, and the freedom to independently search for truth and meaning. And we strive to provide a full program of activities that will nourish your spirit and stimulate your mind.
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.
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.
Come and be a part of our friendly and growing community. Our doors are open to you!

Our Vision Statement
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.
Reflection from our most recent Sunday service
Latest Blog Articles
Love is the doctrine of this church, the quest of truth is its sacrament, and service is its prayer. To dwell together in peace, to seek knowledge in freedom, to serve others in community, to the end that all souls shall grow into harmony with creation, thus do we covenant with one another.
February 5 - The Self as the Root of Unconditional Love
James Clear, in his best selling book titled “Atomic Habits,” wrote that the ability to love yourself improves your ability to be loved by others. This Sunday, our minister, Don Strickland, will take a close look at self love and the 4th UU source that calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves.
The Sunday service begins at 10:30. Watch it live on Facebook or see a recording on our YouTube page. For more info, email: Office@WestsideUU.org.
