Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson

Our Mission

We transform ourselves, our community, and our world by intentionally living our Unitarian-Universalist principles.

Greetings and WelcomeRev. Lyn Oglesby

Welcome to our Unitarian Universalist faith and our Church community in Tucson.  We have been a beacon of liberal religion and a place for a free and responsible search for truth and meaning for over 60 years.  We are a diverse community without creed but with shared values and principles for a better world.  We take inspiration from many religions as well as humanist and scientific thought.  We welcome all who wish to join us in our search for the sacred.

Coming in January!

Be the Change

You Want to See in the World

 Are you wondering how to connect with people in your life who have radically different political views than yours? Or how to interact more effectively with people with whom you disagree? When you talk with those on an opposite side of an issue, is it difficult to listen without getting defensive, justifying your position, or thinking about your rebuttal before the other has finished speaking?

Would you like instead to live in a world:

  • where everyone’s needs matter and every voice is heard?
  • where conflict can be resolved with care and kindness?
  • where you meet your needs in cooperation with mine, not at my expense?

Mountain Vista UU (Tucson), UU Church of Tucson, and Sky Island UU (Sierra Vista) invite you to a two day training workshop for Southern Arizona UUs.


A language of compassion in speaking and listening, and living your values

WHEN: Two Saturdays <> January 6 and January 13, 2018 <> 9 AM to 4 PM

WHERE: UU Church of Tucson, 4831 E. 22nd St., Tucson, AZ

The first day we will start exploring and understanding NVC, and the second day will bring us more practice and confidence with our new skills. This two day workshop is led by Sylvia Haskvitz - a Tucson resident who has been living, sharing and teaching NVC since 1989. In addition to leading workshops, Sylvia is a certified NVC trainer, has written books and essays, and produced TV and radio programs focusing on NVC.

Thanks to subsidies from the sponsoring congregations, registration fees are a bargain at:

  • $55 per person, prepaid by November 30 ~or~
  • $65 per person prepaid after November 30

Fee includes the two day workshop and lunch on both days.

Some $20 scholarship rates are available for folks with limited resources.

Our Seven Principles

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Religious Education

Our Vision

Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.

We envision a program that is rooted in our UU principles and a free and responsible search for meaning that through the thoughts and actions of our lives, transforms us, our community, and our world.
