Our Purpose

Grounded in love, the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough strives to be a welcoming community that embraces life with wonder and inquiry.  Dedicated to our Unitarian Universalist principles and inspired by our interconnection with all that is, we foster personal transformation and act for a just and sustainable world.

Welcome!

The Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough welcomes you – just as you are – to our community. Whether you are looking for an open-minded faith community, a place to explore and question, or a place for your children to find their own religious path, I invite you to gather with us. Together, we learn as we search for truth. Together, we celebrate life’s gifts and share our burdens. Together, as a multigenerational and diverse community, we work toward peace and justice.

When the Well is Dry

Sunday Service - September 21, 10:00am
Rev. Julie Stoneberg

Music by The Occasionals

To find hope or to renew our spirits, we might visit a ‘well’...a place where we find rest, comfort, support, hope.  But what if the wells are all dry?  Suicide is a choice made when there appears to be no other options.  Is suicide a crime, a needless tragedy, or the best available option?  
 
 
 

This I Believe - Forgiveness and Renewal

Sunday Service - September 28, 10:00am
The Creative Worship Team

Music by TBA

We gather on this day between the Jewish holy days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur...the time for forgiveness, reconciliation and new beginnings.  In what ways has forgiveness played a role in renewal in your life?
