The Unitarian Church of Sharon, Massachusetts, is a progressive faith community striving to reach out to the world, in all of its beauty, with open minds and open hearts. There are no requirements to come here, only a respect for different ways of living. The congregation supports and defends the dignity of all and promotes living in harmony with nature. This is a “Welcoming Congregation,” which means the membership celebrates diversity, including gay, lesbian, transgendered and bisexual people.
The Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:15 a.m. Children begin the morning in the Meetinghouse for worship with their parents. After a special time for children in the service, children move to religious education classes. The service ends at 11:30 a.m. and is followed by a coffee hour. The Sunday evening service is held at 7:00 p.m.
The Unitarian Universalist Association has selected the Unitarian Church of Sharon as a “Breakthrough Congregation.” They select four churches each year to receive this recognition. It means we have shown exceptional dynamism and growth in recent years. The UU World Magazine has done a story about the Unitarian Church of Sharon and why it is a Breakthrough Congregation. The article has been published in the March issue of the UU World.
