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: August 30, 2015, 11 am: "Stories for Your Inner Child," a multigenerational service. Worship Leaders: Brian Chenowith and Stacey Stone. (Childcare available for infants and toddlers starting at 9 am on Sundays.)   

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". 

Water Communion

UUCL will celebrate our Water Communion on Sunday, September 6th. Please bring a small amount of water to the service from a place that is special to you. The combined water is symbolic of our shared faith coming from many different sources. 

This will also be our First Sunday Lunch for September. Please sign up to help set up beforehand or clean up afterwards, and as always, feel free to bring a dish to share.

Religious Exploration

The RE program will be bringing some of the magic of Hogwarts to Lexington.

Whether the children or youth have read the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling or not, they will have the chance to learn key elements to the UU faith in a fun and interactive way. Each month we will have service projects connecting the whole congregation to local, national and even world wide issues. Contact uucldre@uucl.org for more information.

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.
