Our Minister

We're so happy and privileged that the Rev. Dr. Kate R. Walker joined us as our settled minister beginning in August 2021. We know she will become a valuable member of the entire Pittsburgh community!

Covid-19 Update

First Unitarian Church Ellsworth Our services are now open to a limited number of people with Covid-19 restrictions. If you would like to attend an upcoming service, please use this form to make a reservation. Walk-ins are welcome if fewer than 75 people attend. All attending must follow Covid-19 protocol. To ensure everyone’s safety, per Board policy, no food is allowed in our building at this time.

Climate & Racial Justice

Sunflower We are exploring a congregation-wide one- or two-year focus on environmental justice (climate and justice). This focus would ask all members to spend time on one of four areas: direct action, advocacy, personal and First Unitarian church changes, and education. Contact Rev. Kate to learn more.
