Featured Information

UCB Community Action
During the past month, both the Parish Council and the Rev. Dr. Kristen Harper wrote letters decrying the well-publicized reaction of fear to allowing Syrian refugees into the USA. Kristen's letter was written to Gov. Baker, asking for a change of heart from his initial exclusion statement. He did change his position. The Parish Council letter, signed by 78 church members and friends, was sent to many politicians and local news outlets. It was printed in both the Barnstable Patriot and as an OpEd piece in the Cape Cod Times. Please, take a moment and read both letters.

Letter to Gov. Baker

Welcome to the Unitarian Church of Barnstable located in Barnstable Village on beautiful Cape Cod.

If you’re looking for people who share a common curiosity, a desire for spiritual direction, and a commitment to our planet and all its inhabitants—you’ll find them here. If you’re looking for a congregation of seekers who come from a variety of religious and philosophical backgrounds—Catholic, Jewish, Protestant, Buddhist, agnostic, atheist, humanist, and others—you’ll feel right at home. If you’re looking for a community that celebrates diversity—you’ll fit right in.  If you’re looking for a denomination that affirms the worth of human beings, advocates freedom of belief and the search for advancing truth—you’ll like it here.

But the most important thing you’ll find here is the opportunity to be part of a caring, friendly community. Why not get to know us? We invite you to worship with us and explore our many programs and activities for people of all ages and interests. Learn more »
