About Unitarian Universalism

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is a voluntary association of autonomous, self-governing local churches and fellowships, which have freely chosen to pursue common goals together. The Association’s polity is congregational; Association decisions are made by congregational delegates in business sessions at the annual General Assembly (GA). Between General Assemblies, the UUA is governed by the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees meets at least quarterly.

There are several Districts and Regions of the UUA in North America. The mission of the UUA Districts and Regions is to serve as the primary local resource for congregations and to help extend Unitarian Universalist influence in the larger community. They provide a wide range of services to member congregations. The district to which our church belongs is the Ballou-Channing District.
