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.
Sunday Worship at Allegheny
Sunday morning worship at Allegheny offers an opportunity to find spiritual refreshment, inspiration, and joy. All services are currently online only, with a plan for hybrid online and in-person beginning May 15th, 2022.
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.

May 8 | Gizelxanath Rodriguez
Gizelxanath Rodriguez is an artist/activist/educator and woman of Yaqui descent, daughter of Mexican-Yaqui laborers who migrated to the U.S. in 1989. In 2014, Rodriguez co-founded the Afro Yaqui Music Collective with Ben Barson, a band showcasing futuristic indigenous knowledge and bold fusion. Fluent in six languages, Rodriguez reclaims her identity through research on the Yaqui, and composing in Yoeme—the Yaqui language, and teaching about ecological justice and indigenous rights through performance.
Gizelxanath will be speaking about the importance of matriarchal societies and the urgency to return to a more nurturing way of being—caring for the wellbeing of the earth and our communities.
