We are a Unitarian Universalist congregation in East Brunswick, New Jersey

We practice inclusiveness and celebrate life in its variety, welcoming a diverse group of seekers - people interested in a freethinking religion; those looking for a community that welcomes them as they are, and values them for who they are; people of all ages, all races, backgrounds, orientations or origins are welcome to attend and help us build a beloved community.

Some of the Things We Believe In

As Unitarian-Universalists, we do not have a creed. The closest two things to one that we have are, first, this congregation's mission statement and, second, our Bond of Union, which we recite in each service, much as most Christian denominations would recide their Apostles' creed.

Our Mission

The Unitarian Society, a Unitarian Universalist congregation, is a welcoming, supportive and accepting environment of people with diverse beliefs.

We explore, develop and share our spiritual journeys, guided by principles of compassion, love, justice and service.

Our Bond of Union

"In the spirit of community and service, we unite in the quest for those values which give our lives deeper meaning and spiritual satisfaction, reserving to each individual the right to his or her own beliefs as to the nature of God and the universe."

Montessori School

The Unitarian Society of East Brunswick operates a Montessori school on its premises. For 26 years, The Unitarian Montessori School has been educating for young children, embracing a diversity of culture, nurturing appreciation and awareness of our human diversity, and emphasizing peace and cooperation.For more information, please visit the webpage.
