Worship is central at Allegheny, and happens every Sunday at 10:30am, year-round.
Our 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. Who’s speaking this week?

We hope to offer hybrid services soon but for now, please join us on Zoom. Log in information can be found in our FaceBook group, in the newsletter or by contacting the church.
Sunday at Allegheny
Sunday morning worship at Allegheny offers an opportunity to find spiritual refreshment, inspiration, and joy.
There are two ways to connect
Soul Space at 10:30 am
Where 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
At the Worship Café each week, Allegheny welcomes a fellow traveler on life’s journey. Café guests share their thoughts and passions to inspire us on the way.
Join us for one or both opportunities. Fellowship follows in the same location at 11:30 am.

You Are Invited!
You are invited no matter what you believe, where you normally worship, or how you feel about God or spirituality. Come no matter how you’re dressed or what kind of mood you’re in. Come, especially, if you need to – if you need to feel the support of a community.
We may do some things differently that you’ve never seen at church. We’ll light a chalice, talk about our joys and sorrows, and about the spirit of life. Yes we talk about Unitarian Universalism but you’ll also hear about Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Humanism, Atheism, Earth-centered Spirituality, Paganism, and other religions and traditions. It’s all good. Afterwards we’ll hang around and talk, and hopefully get to know each other a bit.
All are welcome!
We are a Welcoming Congregation.
Families and children of all ages are welcome!
