Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington, KY


We are building a caring community, open to all, that treasures free thought, joyful celebration, life-long learning and generous service.

OUR Mission

We live our U.U. values by acting for human dignity and equality and environmental justice for all creatures.

OUR Purpose

We welcome all without regard to race, creed, age, economic status, physical ability, gender expression, or sexual orientation. These are some of the categories that have divided, rather than united, people of faith.

Please Join Us for Our Sunday Service: October 11, 11 a.m. "A World of Closet Doors".  Worship Leader: Brian Chenowith.  (Childcare available for infants and toddlers starting at 9 am on Sundays.)   

Strengthen Our Roots - 2016 Stewardship Campaign Kickoff Party is Saturday, October 10 at UUCL! Come one, come all!  Doors open at 5 p.m. Childcare is provided.

14th Annual Fine Arts and Crafts Fair coming on Sunday, Nov. 22. Register now to participate!

Read our Covenant of Right Relations adopted at May 31 Congregational Meeting.

Bad Weather? Wonder if church is open, or if a church event is still being held? We’ll get the information posted as quickly as possible, so you can check these online or TV sites: this website and our Facebook Page, WLEXTV Stormtracker Closings & Delays, and WKYT Closings.  TV listings may show us as "UU Church of Lexington" or "Unitarian Universalist Church of Lexington". 


The local chapter of The Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans (CUUPS) here at UUCL (LexCUUPS) provides spaces for gathering and for worship, and fosters healing relationships with the Earth and all the Earth's children, thru classes and regular full moon rituals. LexCUUPS meets on Sundays, after services, and Sabbat occasions. See the church calendar for actual dates or visit our webpage.  LexCUUPS has a website and a Facebook page, where you can learn more about the group and any upcoming events. All interested persons are welcome to attend.  For more information please contact elminster74@yahoo.com.

About our church

Our church was designed by noted architect Herb Greene and is situated on 7.5 acres of green in Lexington, Kentucky.  The largest Unitarian Universalist church in the region, UUCL has been a constant voice for religious tolerance and education for more than sixty-five years.


About our faith

Unitarian Universalism has its roots in Protestant Christian theology but affirms the wisdom and value of all faiths as well as the importance of intellectual inquiry. In our churches, no one is asked to ascribe to any creed; each of us finds Truth in our own way, and each of us is responsible for our own journey. We come together so that we may learn from each other, and so that we may share our joys and our sorrows along the way.
