About our Congregation

We're delighted that you're interested in getting to know about our congregation and about Unitarian Universalism. Our community began life as a few Universalists meeting in a shared meeting hall on Main Street in the village of St. Johnsbury more than 150 years ago. Eventually the Universalists felt confident enough to build their own church on Eastern Avenue where we are now. Originally there was a large wooden church between our current building and Eastern Avenue, but due to subsidence and benign neglect, the building had to be demolished in the 1970's.  The current building was originally built as the church school and continues to be our welcoming home in the Northeast Kingdom to this day.

If you wonder why we call ourselves the Universalist Unitarian Congregation, it is in deference to our origins in the old Universalist movement once prevalent in its own right here in New England.
