About UUCW

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Winchendon is a congregation of welcoming, diverse, open-minded people, committed to the search for truth and serving the community around us.

It was organized as the Church of the Unity in 1866 by Unitarians who desired a liberal religious community.

Over the years, its philosophy has been to actively seek exposure to as many differing ideas, concepts, and hypotheses as possible, and to provide an atmosphere for examining spiritual questions and individuality. The congregation has evolved through numerous paths, from traditional Unitarianism to humanism. We were officially recognized as a Welcoming Congregation (for LGBTQI persons) by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 2016.

We are currently moving our focus toward community ministry, in which our congregation expends considerable effort on volunteer efforts that enrich our region and its residents. We occasionally hold traditional worship services such as Christmas Eve and other noteworthy occasions, which will be published on this website. We welcome inquiry and participation from members and non-members alike.

The UUCW is administered by a Governing Board which meets once per month. The church Annual Meeting is held in June and is open to all church members. If you would like to speak with the Governing Board at one of their meetings or learn more about what we do, email our Chair Jill Nicholson Sackett: jill@sackett.com. All are welcome.
