If you are looking for a spiritual community in Norwich where you do not have to check your personal background and beliefs at the door, you have come to the right place. At the Unitarian Universalist Church of Norwich, we offer a nurturing atmosphere in which people from all walks of life can deepen their spiritual lives while joining us on a journey that honors everywhere you’ve been before.
To ensure that we foster a well-rounded congregation, we host a number of speakers and discuss various topics throughout the year. We invite you to browse through our website, read our write-ups, and listen to posted Sermon Audios to learn more about us.
November 11: Reverend Nicholas Boke
Nicholas Boke will speak on “When was the last time you felt clueless?” He appropriated the idea from the sign in front of a nearby Congregational church which prompted him to think long and hard about both the nature of cluelessness and the question of how often he felt it (Hint: Often).
Nicholas Boke is the former minister of the First Universalist Parish of Chester, Vermont, and has spoken from several dozen UU pulpits in New England and beyond. He currently works as an international education consultant in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. He lives in Providence, RI, with his wife, Buffy, who recently retired from her ministry at First Parish Unitarian Universalist in Canton, MA.
Join us for Reverend Boke's sermon. All are welcome.
We welcome fellow seekers to consider life's big questions and share our loving community.
We are a spiritually inspired urban community of caring people. We derive strength from our diversity, work for human dignity everywhere, and provide a strong voice for social justice in the greater Norwich area. None of us has final answers to the central questions of life, but we are committed to the process of seeking truth and meaning.
We inquire and worship together, learn through respectful religious dialog, and draw upon the spiritual wisdom of every tradition, from every corner of the globe.
Our 2017 - 2018 worship season began on September 10 at 10:00 AM. We meet on the lower floor of United Congregational Church. Visitors and newcomers are welcome!
Our services draw from seven Principles, which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote. We live out the Principles within a "living tradition" of wisdom and spirituality, drawn from multiple sources such as science, poetry, scripture and personal experience. We encourage you to bring your own ideas and inspiration to our congregation, where you'll find others who will listen and perhaps even share your enthusiasm!
Read on for more details about our church. For questions, comments, or feedback, do not hesitate to contact us.
One of our primary goals is to make our church as accessible to as many people as possible. This is the reason why we are conveniently located on the lower floor of the United Congregational Church at 87 Broadway. We are just across the street from the Norwich Town Hall.
Parking spaces are available on both the lower and upper floor of the parking structure that is adjacent to our church. For the mobility-challenged, access to our church is easiest from the lower floor or via the street-side parking near the traffic light, which is located just before the city hall.
We are not overly formal–most people wear what's comfortable for them and what works for the current weather condition. If you are used to "dressing up" for church and are comfortable with that, by all means, dress up! Most people attend our church in “business casual” clothing.
