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?"

Volunteer at the Warming Center

There is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to do something concrete and tangible to help our community. Cooking a good meal and sharing it with our guests at the Warming Centers is now a part of our culture of caring here at the Unitarian Society. We need about 80 volunteers each year to make this happen! I look forward to having you as part of the team! You can sign up here.

This service will by led by Rev. Julia Hamilton.
