Welcoming Congregation


The Universalist Unitarian Church of Haverhill has successfully completed the Welcoming Congregations program of the Unitarian Universalist Association and received official designation as a Welcoming Congregation. This designation signifies that the congregation has been through an intentional process to begin to confront our own institutional and personal homophobia and to make The Universalist Unitarian Church of Haverhill an explicitly welcoming religious home for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning people. Being a Welcoming Congregation also entails a commitment to continue the work of education and reflection around GLBTQQ issues. We are committed to being inclusive and welcoming of all GLBTQQ people in every aspect of the church’s life, from worship and rites of passage to education, music and social justice programs. We extend a warm welcome to all gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning people and their families to consider making UUCH their spiritual home.
