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. The theme for July is AdventureChildcare available for infants and toddlers starting at 9 a.m. on Sundays

July 24, 11 a.m. "Looking into the Eyes of Fear" This Summer has been an especially scary one for so many of us. What can we do with our fear when it arises? And how can we develop more resilience, individually and as a body of faith? Worship Leader: Kirt Hodges, student of Divinity at Denver’s Iliff School of Theology, resident of Northern Kentucky, and member of St. John’s Unitarian Universalist Church in Cincinnati.

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.
