Embracing Diversity, Nurturing Spirituality, and Promoting Justice in the World.

Unitarian Universalist Church of Loudoun (UUCL) was founded in 1991 as a Church of inclusion and welcome. We are located Leesburg, within the heart of Loudoun County, Virginia. Over the years, we have built a strong and loving congregation bound together in a shared covenant that states “Love is the spirit of this church, the quest for truth is its sacrament, to dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in freedom, and to help our neighbor…”

Unitarian Universalism
In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.

Together, we create a force more powerful than one person or one belief system. As Unitarian Universalists, we do not have to check our personal background and beliefs at the door: we join together on a journey that honors everywhere we’ve been before.

Our beliefs are diverse and inclusive. We have no shared creed. Our shared covenant (our seven Principles) supports “the free and responsible search for truth and meaning.” Though Unitarianism and Universalism were both liberal Christian traditions, this responsible search has led us to an inclusive spirituality drawn from six sources: from scriptural wisdom to personal experience to modern day heroes.

UUCL is building a robust social justice agenda comprised of several components.  We offer year-round social justice opportunities and special collections, as well as year-round support for All Ages Read Together (AART).  Following a collective effort to identify a social justice opportunity that addressed poverty alleviation, our congregation unanimously selected AART, a local nonprofit that provides free pre-school readiness programs to disadvantaged children, as its first “Signature Initiative” to advance social justice by leveling the educational playing field for poor kids.  We believe an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
