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.
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.

During this service we will explore some of the differences between holiday celebrations of the faithful, as well as, and most importantly, how the same underlying messages of these holy day celebrations bring us closer to a spirit of understanding and oneness. Incorporated into this exploration will be a focus on the common theme of light among various faith traditions.
Note: The Annual Budget Meeting follows this service.

In a diverse community, it follows that there is a diversity of expectations and needs. Gil Rendle, congregational consultant, believes that one key to congregational success is to stop trying to ‘fix’ things for everyone, and to turn instead to a culture of understanding and communication. In this season of expectation, there’s a personal message here as well!

Darkness. It’s pervasive, it’s beautiful, and it’s generative. Things grow in darkness. We celebrate the absence of light even as we welcome the returning sun. (This service may be held in the lower level. If accessibility is a concern, please check-in in advance so that we can do everything possible to ensure your enjoyment of the service.)

It’s a beautiful story… the search for an inn, the birth of a baby, the shepherds in the fields, the three magi. Stories of meaning, like the Christmas story, are magical for everyone! (There is no nursery care provided for this service; all ages welcome.)
A special collection will be taken to support the minister’s discretionary fund.

In this much loved service, you will get a glimpse into the life story of a few members and friends of our congregation as they share their thoughts and memories about this time... as the end of one year turns into the beginning of another.
