Are you looking for a community, and a place to explore and deepen your spirituality? At the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton, you will find all of this and more. Come and be our guest. Find what you are seeking.

Worship Service Times

Our service time is 10:30 am on Sunday. Religious education classes for preschoolers and older children are held at 10:30 also. Our supervised nursery is available during the worship service for children three and younger.

Children briefly join the worship service at 10:30 in the sanctuary, Channing Hall, before going to the classrooms.

Several times a year, we worship as a community of all ages. Those services include Blessing of the Waters in September, Day of the Dead in the fall, Hanging of the Greens, the spring services of Easter and a Flower Communion.

Special Welcome For Visitors and Newcomers

Our Sunday Morning greeters will show you to the Welcome Circle just inside our main building. Here, you will receive a welcoming packet and chat with our welcoming team. They will help you navigate your first visits, answer questions, and extend a hearty greeting.

Our services are about an hour in length and include music, hymns, readings, and a sermon. After the service, we invite you to join us in the lounge (next to our sanctuary) for an informal coffee hour. Often there is brunch after the service where you will enjoy good food and conversation.

We recommend that you attend three to four services to really “try us out.”

What We Believe

Unitarian Universalism is spiritually alive and justice centered. Unitarian Universalists search for truth along many paths. Instead of centering our religion on specific tenets, we gather around shared moral values that include the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

Children and Teens

During the Sunday Morning 10:30 am Worship Service, we offer Religious Education programs for children and youth. Explore our Children and Youth Religious Education program.

What to Wear

You are welcome to come in whatever makes you comfortable. You’ll find most people wearing casual attire – everything from typical “Friday casual days” wear to jeans and T-shirts. And there are some men who feel more comfortable in a coat and tie and some women likely to wear a dress or suit.

Directions

Our address is 50 Cherry Hill Road, Princeton, NJ 08540. See us on google maps.
