The Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica (UUSM) was founded in 1927 and is affiliated with the national Unitarian Universalist Association. The UUSM community embraces many beliefs and many backgrounds. UUs celebrate unity in diversity, affirming the supreme worth of all persons, held together through love and a spark of divinity that resides in us all. Our community is a Welcoming Congregation, welcoming all persons and families regardless of sexual orientation.

 With one of the largest UU Religious Education programs in Southern California, we support both youth and adults in their search for understanding, insight and inspiration. Many congregants share their Unitarian Universalism as a family.

UUSM is also an active center for social justice, peace and sustainability. For a full calendar of events visit or connect with us on Facebook
