Welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware
Greetings, and welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware (UUCD). If you are new to Unitarian Universalism (UU), you are in for a real adventure. If you know a little (or a lot) about UU’s, this will be somewhat familiar territory.
We were chartered in 2009; but we come out of a long progressive tradition of freethinking, responsible people who take very seriously growing as spiritual beings. We are a small group, but value enthusiastically sharing our time energy and talent.
What Do We Believe?
We have tried to capture for you here in some small way the complexity and diversity of our spiritual community. That is often hard to do as we are more about supporting and engaging each other on our own individual spiritual journeys, than on making truth claims or seeking conformity. It is often said that we are more interested in a good discussion, than in agreement. So rather than being about a belief system, we are about personal freedom and personal responsibility. We each have the personal freedom to search for our own understanding. With that comes the personal responsibility to follow through on that quest. In the words of Richard Gilbert, we: ‘provide tools for building a theology based on the materials of our individual life experiences.’
So if you are looking for a spiritual home which:
- welcomes you as you are,
- celebrates the human condition as it is,
- challenges us to explore the meanings of our lives, and the commitments which give it purpose,
- encourages us to ask questions about our understanding of the sacred and divine,
- engages with us in the answers we find,
- offers the support of a caring community, and
- provides us with a safe place to discover more about ourselves;
then come and join us. We gather on Sunday mornings to celebrate life.

UUCD Welcomes Our New Minister
The Rev. Dr. Kharma R. Amos is absolutely thrilled to begin working with the Unitarian Universalists of Central Delaware. She has been working with the Unitarian Universalist Association to receive plural standing (dual affiliation) for the last year, and is nearly finished with that process. Rev. Amos was ordained by Metropolitan Community Churches in 2002, and she has served in MCC as a local church pastor (9 years) and denominational staff (8 years).
For more information about Rev. Amos, please see our Our Minister page.
We are cancelling services, including all meetings after worship. We will not schedule future services or meetings until more is known about how we can best respond to the COVID-19 health crisis. Click here for the latest update
We are going to try our first UUCD Virtual Worship service via Zoom on Sunday, April 5th at our normal 10:00 am time.
Until then, we invite you to make time on Sunday morning for an alternative form of worship. Specifically, we suggest you watch the video of the Opening Worship from the Unitarian Universalist Association 2019 General Assembly. Not only will this provide you with a good experience, it will give you a taste of our GA. You may wish to attend this year since it is so close to us (relatively) in Providence, RI.
We also encourage you to attend a UU Virtual Streaming Worship Service on Sundays. We recommend one or more of the following:
