We are a diverse, spiritual community committed to compassion, social justice and freedom to think and learn. We come together to support each other’s personal search for meaning, drawing on secular wisdom and many faith traditions.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Paris (UUFP) was formally established in 1985 as one of the centers in Europe of a worldwide liberal religion open to diversity of thought and belief.
We have regular monthly events: a Sunday service led by visiting ministers from around Europe and North America or members of the congregation; and other small groups that meet on a regular basis. Events are in English but many members speak French.
Religious Education programming for children focuses on values, not dogma, and runs concurrently with our Sunday service. For adults, our fellowship offers workshops and study groups such as Small Group Ministries (see Fellowship Activities).
We participate with the European Unitarian Universalists, or EUU, to host a family-friendly retreat twice a year. The retreat features a theme speaker, children’s programming and adult workshops along with fun activities to get to know kindred spirits from around the continent.
We are also a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) in the United States.
As with most UU communities, we enjoy fellowship with members and friends who have a multitude of beliefs and faith traditions. You’ll find participants with Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, as well as Atheist and Agnostic identities seeking meaningful connection in a welcoming community. All we ask of our members is respect for each other’s understanding. Membership is voluntary and does not require renouncing other religious affiliations or practices.
