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.
Westside UU is 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.
Westside is delighted to have Rev. Don Strickland as our minister. Learn more about Rev. Strickland here. If you'd like to see him in action, you can watch recordings of his reflections on our YouTube page.

Reflection from our most recent Sunday service

March 26 - The Value of Vulnerability
"But if I repeatedly resist sharing where I really am, who I really am, ignoring my need for grief, denying some important aspect of my life, I begin to suffer from a loss of authenticity. And what happens to me is, I end up getting sick. So, trying to present myself as invulnerable is a risk to my body – the stress goes somewhere. The gravest danger, though, is in the risk to the larger body – the risk of disconnecting from those who are prepared to give me a shoulder to hold onto. Real community, closeness, is created when vulnerability happens...” - the Reverend Jonalu Johnstone. Valued member and Westside's treasurer, Dwight Robarts, will read Reverend Johnstone's reflection on vulnerability.
The Sunday service begins at 10:30. Watch it live on Facebook or see a recording on our YouTube page.
