Welcome

Welcome to the

Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

of Storrs!

 

WELCOME

We are a small, friendly, member-led church with a part time minister, the Rev. Craig M. Nowak. As a Welcoming Congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), we pride ourselves on the warmth and inclusiveness of our community, the quality of our worship services, and opportunities we provide for spiritual growth and service to others.

 

OUR HISTORY IN BRIEF

The fellowship was founded in 1957 as a lay fellowship at the home of Charles & Marjorie Lee to meet the needs of individuals seeking a community of spiritual acceptance.  In the 1960s, we built and dedicated our meetinghouse on Spring Hill Road in Storrs.  Today, UUFS serves the Greater Windham area, with members from Storrs, Windham, Willimantic, Mansfield, Coventry, Lebanon, Stafford Springs and other local towns.
