Welcome to Westside UU Church!
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.
Stewardship Campaign: The home stretch
We are down to the last few days of this year's campaign. There is still a lot of ground to cover to reach our goal, but we CAN get there. Click here to access the Pledge Form and more info about the campaign. Your contribution will help keep the lights burning--in our church and in ourselves!
Sundays: So much to like
Services are held every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Attendees are expected to follow our COVID-19 procedures, which currently require masking. You can watch our services live on Facebook or watch recordings on YouTube.
Before church, our adult forum group gathers to discuss current events, while children and youth enjoy fun and thoughtful religious education programs. After church, people who could not attend participate in a Zoom discussion group. Others gather for fellowship in our Fellowship Hall or recently updated courtyard. Information on how to watch our services online is in the blue box on this page.
Our church always has a LOT going on, including book clubs, dinner gatherings, and social justice work. And did we mention our incredible children's religious education program? The best way to keep up with everything is by receiving our weekly emails. Just click here to subscribe.

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 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.
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.
Latest Reflection from Our Service
Latest Blog Articles
“Proud to be Queer”
Throughout history, queerness has been denigrated. Today in America, queer people increasingly enjoy equality and safety, but rarely are they celebrated for their contributions. James Croft (who is himself gay) will explore some of the contributions LGBTQIA+ people have made and explain why he is proud to be queer.
James is the Leader of the Ethical Society of St. Louis, one of the largest Humanist congregations in the world. He is a native of England, and has spoken across the nation and internationally, helping to re-imagine religion for a secular age.
The service starts at 10:30. Watch live on Facebook (with an account) or see a recording on YouTube. For more info, email: Office@WestsideUU.org. Come check us out!
