Community. Courage. Love. Diversity. Generosity. Joy. These are the cornerstones of our congregation.  Since 1876, the Unitarian Society has been a beacon of progressive religion in Santa Barbara. If you are seeking a religion that speaks to your mind as well as your heart, a spiritual community with doors wide open to the world, you are welcome here. To quote the poet Mary Oliver, "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?"

EVENTS


Easter Sunday, APRIL 16

Join us at 9:15 and 11:15 for services led by Rev. Julia Hamilton

"The story of Easter, the story of spring, the story of rebirth and renewal; it is all about turning from a short-term sense of despair toward a long-term sense of hope. It is about lifting our eyes toward the horizon, toward the sun, toward life. Join us this Easter to celebrate and embrace hope!'
Women’s Chorale will sing.
