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.

 

All Are Welcome

You’ll find amazing people here from diverse religious backgrounds and on varied spiritual paths.

We are an LGBTQ Welcoming Congregation.

Mar 31 | Rev. David McFarland

We welcome Rev. Dave to Worship Café today to offer an Easter Sunday reflection as we continue our month-long exploration of the Gift of Transformation. Rev. Dave served as Allegheny’s called minister for 16 years prior to his retirement in 2020. He and his family continue to be supportive members of Allegheny, and we are looking forward to our time together this Easter morning.

Apr 07 | Liz Dell

Liz is a fourth-generation Unitarian Universalist and has been a member of Allegheny for almost 20 years. She has served on the Board, including a term as President, and as the leader of Allegheny’s PIIN team. Born and raised in Washington DC, Liz came to Pittsburgh for university. She received a dual degree from Pitt in Computer and Political Science, and then an MBA with an IT emphasis. Professionally, she works in the IT department of Allegheny County as a project manager. Liz and Lisa LaRue will be in conversation at Worship Café today.

Apr 14 | Covenant Matters

In this season when we are reflecting on our interdependence and looking forward to our work together at the Allegheny Annual Meeting, we will hear a message from Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter from January 2023 following the killing of Tyre Nichols. He asks us to consider the role of covenant in the congregation. He challenges us to live with the spiritual question: “how do we belong to each other.” Rev. Kanter is senior minister at First Unitarian Church of Dallas. Donald Zeilman will host this morning’s Worship Café.

Apr 21 | Rev. Deryck Tines

Our spiritual focus in this month of April is The Gift of Interdependence. Rev. Deryck joins us at Worship Café to reflect on the significance of interdependence in our lives.
