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.

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.

Mar 26 | Danny Rectenwald

Danny continues to earn local and national acclaim for his work as guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, and arranger, and has won numerous awards for his musicianship. Danny studied with Tom Kikta, Tim Bedner, and Jason Vieaux at Duquesne University and the Cleveland Institute of Music. He currently resides in Pittsburgh where he is integrally rooted in the local music scene and maintains a busy performance calendar, playing solo and in-collaboration at the local and national level.

Apr 2 | Rev. Zebulon Green

Rev. Green works at the intersection of arts, social justice, and spirituality. Zeb was ordained by Sacred Liberation, a multi-religious community center and sanctuary in El Paso where Zeb’s ministry supported refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers with care and shelter. Currently, Zeb is Director and emcee of Sacred Mischief, which is a disruptive spiritual path, perhaps the most disruptive path: that of living authentically, dreaming wildly, and loving recklessly.
