Unitarian Universalism in Boston

The Unitarian Universalist tradition was formed in 1961 when Unitarians and Universalists came together, yet the faith has a long and rich history--and special connections to Greater Boston. The first Universalist congregation in North America was organized in Massachusetts in the 1770s by John Murray; Boston’s King’s Chapel publicly embraced Unitarianism just after the Revolution. Today, Boston is home to the Unitarian Universalist Association headquarters, connecting more than 1,000 member congregations across the U.S. There are more than 70 active Unitarian Universalist congregations in the Greater Boston area.
