Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson

Our Mission

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


Welcoming Congregation

Greetings and WelcomeRev. Bethany Russell-Lowe

Welcome! We are so glad you have found your way here. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson has been a beacon of liberal religion and a place to pursue a free and responsible search for truth and meaning in Tucson for over 70 years. If you are looking for a place where you can explore your own spiritual truths in community with others, you have come to the right place! As Unitarian Universalists, we believe that we need not think alike to love alike. Our community is bound together by our Seven Principles which include: the dignity and worthiness of all people, equity and compassion in human relations, and respect for the interdependent web of life. We take inspiration from multiple religions as well as humanist, secular, and scientific thought. Come join us to learn more!  Rev. Bethany Russell-Lowe (minister@uuctucson.org)

Listening Space, an Evening Worship Service

Thursday December 12, 5:30-8:00pm

Our year-long experiment in offering a worship service in the evening will continue in December with a dynamic, all-ages space. Our theme this year is “the body” and each month we will reflect on questions about how we relate to a different body part –as a metaphor for our internal, spiritual, emotional lives, of course!

Each service begins at 5:30pm with a Bring Your Own dinner to eat with friends. At 6pm, we will start a 45 minute service with a dessert potluck after. When the weather cooperates, we’ll drag out the fire pit and toast marshmallows!

Childern & Youth: Family Friendly
