The Unitarian Universalists of the Chester River strongly supports individual spiritual growth. We have a Sunday service along with active adult and children religious education programs. We are an intentionally liberal and diverse community seeking to aid each other's individual spiritual growth. We value openness, community, growth and relationships.

It is the mission of the UUCR to foster liberal religious ideals through public worship, study, service, and fellowship; to provide a public forum to address religious, ethical, and moral issues; to support individual freedom of belief and caring human relationships; to become an intentionally diverse community; and to engage in promoting a just and humane social order.

Please join us. Sunday service is at 10:00 AM on Sundays or visit us on Facebook.

"Seeking Common Ground: Not for the Faint of Heart"


If we seek common ground with others, we must begin with ourselves. In other words, it's an "inside job"!
