All church read: Active Hope

Susan Starkey and Rev. Dr. Kristen Harper began an All Church Book Group on October 7. Using the book “ACTIVE HOPE: How To Face The Mess We're In Without Going Crazy” as a guide, this 4 part series is for anyone at UCB and/or the larger community who wants support to find the best ways to "change ourselves so that we are strong enough to fully contribute to the great shift", whether that is a shift in the political climate, environmental justice and climate change, social, gender or racial justice, or your unique calling. Active Hope is available for $14 from the church office. Learn more »

I welcome you to join this vibrant, intergenerational community.
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 »
