Allegheny Unitarian Universalist Church


We are a welcoming, urban congregation that puts Unitarian Universalism into action by celebrating life, nourishing the spirit, and inspiring a commitment to justice.


Join Us for Sunday Worship in the Sanctuary or Online 

Sunday morning worship at Allegheny offers an opportunity to find spiritual refreshment, inspiration, and joy. We worship together in the sanctuary and online through Zoom. For Zoom access, please contact us.

Services are lay-led by members and friends of the congregation with Rev. Deryck Tines providing a monthly message, typically on the third Sunday. During our other services, we regularly have guest speakers from the wider UU world, the artistic community, and the local justice community. Join us every Sunday for a unique experience at Soul Space, followed by Worship Café.

Soul Space at 10:30 am

Together we create a peaceful space for prayer and reflection. This weekly meditation begins with welcoming words and a time for our prayers and intentions. An invitation to stillness and a period of reflection conclude the service.

Worship Café at 11:00 am

Each week at the Worship Café, Allegheny welcomes a fellow traveler on life’s journey. Café guests share their thoughts and passions to inspire us on the way.
