Welcome to the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh!


We are a progressive, theologically liberal, urban church that provides a warm and supportive sense of community.  In addition to our Sunday morning worship celebrations, we offer religious education classes for children and youthmany different ways to work for justice and compassion in the larger communityfrequent gatherings for young adults and students; ongoing faith development opportunities for adults; several opportunities for involvement in performing arts groups; and many other opportunities for living a more spiritually oriented life in community with others.  We have a deep commitment to social justice and human rights, and some of our partners in ministry include the Unitarian Universalist Pennsylvania Legislative Advocacy Network (UUPLAN), East End Cooperative Ministry (EECM), and the Pennsylvania Interfaith Impact Network (PIIN).
