Unitarian Universalist fellowship of Santa Cruz county

6401 Freedom Boulevard
Aptos, CA 95003

(831) 684-0506

We know that religious spaces haven’t always been welcoming places for all people, especially when it comes to gender and sexuality. We are out to change that.

For 25 years, UU congregations have worked hard to make sure lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are full members of our faith communities. Being welcoming means striving for radical inclusion, and creating spaces that honor every part of our identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Join us for Sunday Service, each week at 10 am.
