A Liberal Religious Voice in the Merrimack Valley since 1847

Welcome!  We are so glad that you have found the website for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Andover, which we affectionately call the UUCiA.  The tagline of this congregation is “A Liberal Religious Voice in the Merrimack Valley since 1847”.  We would go a step further and say that the UUCiA is an important haven in the Merrimack Valley for those who enjoy worshipping in a warm, friendly, and open-minded environment.

The UUCiA provides a spiritual home to many who would not have felt as sustained and supported anywhere else.  This is a congregation of people from different walks of life and different religious backgrounds.  We are people from different cultures, people of different ages and family configurations.

We are people who don’t all believe exactly the same things, but who share core values.   Members of the UUCiA are (as I once heard Unitarian Universalism described) “open to truth and meaning wherever it may be found” just as they “work compassionately for social justice”.

The UUCiA is a proud Welcoming Congregation. (The phrase “Welcoming Congregation” has a particular meaning among Unitarian Universalists. Namely, this congregation has made a commitment to be inclusive and supportive of those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer; we have made a commitment to work for justice around LGBTQ issues as well.)

We are pleased that you have found this website, and hope that you will visit us some Sunday soon. In the words of Rumi (found in our hymnal), “Come, come, whoever you are! Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving… ours is no caravan of despair.  Come, yet again, come.”
