UU Church of Annapolis

Living Boldly

Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis

Living Bold and Compassionate Lives

Our Mission is to inspire all souls to lead bold and compassionate lives

UUCA Rocking Out in Worship

This was taken a recent worship service, which inspired spontaneous dancing!

Get Inspired

Our Summer Services are at 10 am.  We return to two services, 9:00 & 11:15 in September.  Children attend the first part of each service with their families; after the Wonderbox (Time for All Ages) they will go downstairs for either a program or childcare. 

Visiting with children?

The community at UUC  Annapolis  is vibrant and multigenerational. Children & their families begin in the sanctuary together each Sunday. For more information about attending church, click below.

"After Hour"

During the Summer, we hold “After Hour,” which is programming for adults after the one 10 am service.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis is a congregation of approximately 400 adult, children and youth.  We are self-governing, which means the church is “owned” by the members who pledge their support.  We are part of the larger association of congregations known as the Unitarian Universalist Association. 

We are a non-creedal faith, which means we do not expect members to adhere to a creed.  Our Unitarian Universalist Principles guide us, and the Sources of our Faith continue to inspire us.  We hope you’ll visit us this Sunday or at any of the many programs offered during the week.  Welcome!
