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

Services are led by members and friends with Rev. David McFarland on first Sundays, and Rev. Deryck Tines on third Sundays offering their reflections. Join us every First and Third Sunday of the month for a unique experience at Soul Space, followed by Worship Café.

Soul Space | 10:30 am

Together we create a contemplative setting for reflection and renewal. The service begins with welcoming words and prayer, and concludes with a time of reflection and music. The Soul Space spiritual theme for July and August is The Gift of Renewal.

Worship Café | 11:00 am

Each month at the Worship Café, Allegheny welcomes Rev. Dave and Rev. Deryck to share their thoughts and passions to inspire us on the way.

PrayerSong | 6:30 pm on Fifth Sundays

Did you ever wish there was a time of worship other than Sunday morning? Well, at Allegheny there is such a time. Come join us for PrayerSong, a service of evening worship!

PrayerSong will be offered on “Fifth Sundays” at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary beginning in June 2024. PrayerSong is modeled on the traditional Taizé worship service and uses silence, inspiring words, prayer, and the singing of chants and rounds to quiet the mind and promote deeper reflection. It can be the perfect contemplative setting for those seeking renewal, connection, and peace. Note: There is no morning worship on Fifth Sundays. 

All Are Welcome

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

We are an LGBTQ Welcoming Congregation.

Sunday Worship

July 14 | An Open Space Sunday – 10:30am

We offer an opportunity for personal meditation and reflection in an outdoor setting during the worship hour. Join us in Allegheny Commons opposite the church. There are no expectations, you are welcome to engage for as long or as short a time as is meaningful. If the weather does not permit, we will gather in the sanctuary.

Concurrently, there will be an opportunity to participate in creative message making in Founders Hall. Sometimes friends need a boost on their journey of healing and wellness. Join Lisa LaRue as we craft a package of messages for a church member recovering from surgery. You are also welcome to create something for your own friends or family to cheer them on in their own journeys. Supplies and snacks will be provided!.
