• Welcome from Our Minister,
    Reverend Deane Perkins

    Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Belfast. Explore our website for a glimpse of the energy and vitality of our faith community as we work toward spiritual deepening, meaningful connections, and making a positive difference in the world.

    We are proud of the many ways our members and friends contribute to the church and local community.   UUCB began the robust Restorative Justice Program of the Midcoast several years ago and the burgeoning Window Dressers Energy Conservation Program two years ago, and many of our members are active volunteers.  As part of the congregation’s commitment to becoming a Unitarian Universalist Association Peace Advocacy Church, members of our congregation initiated the first annual Belfast Peace Festival this September.

    Our focus reaches farther, too.  Our senior high youth have done service projects in New Orleans, with Mano en Mano here in Maine, and this past summer at Safe Passage in Guatemala. All our programs, for children and adults, foster spiritual growth and challenge us to seek ways to promote justice in our lives and our world.

    Please visit us sometime soon. It will be a pleasure to meet you.
