The Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead (UU Marblehead or UUCM) is a congregation affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). We consider ourselves a beacon of liberal religious thought and practice. Amid the challenges and changes of a chaotic world, we aspire to proclaim and embody the possibilities of meaning in human life, of freedom in human thought, and of peace and justice in human community.
There are seven principles which we affirm and promote:
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
We realize these principles through many activities, from our regular Sunday services, religious exploration, and community outreach. We are a welcoming community. Reverend Wendy von Courter leads our Sunday services that are held at 10:30 am mid September through mid June at 28 Mugford Street, Marblehead. Parking is available on the street and in the Gerry School parking lot on Elm Street. Mid June through mid September lay-led services are held at 9:30 am. Child care is available for infants and toddlers – religious exploration classes for kindergarten through high school.
