About Us

The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Binghamton offers a spiritual home where we explore, celebrate and cherish our interconnectedness, encourage growth and transcendence, and act with justice and compassion.

Welcoming Congregation

We are a Welcoming Congregation, a Unitarian Universalist term for UU congregations that have voted to affirm, welcome and support gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people.

Principles of Unitarian Universalism

As a Unitarian Universalist Congregation, we are guided and covenanted by the Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Association.


We are members of the Unitarian Universalist Association, Central East Region.


We are governed by a board of trustees voted into office annually and supported by our minister and staff members.

Day and Night:
Sunday morning worship; with our minister in the pulpit, the Sun shining down through the windows, and Branwen whispering in my ear.
Full moon night; singing and dancing, trancing with the God/desses.
— Darin Goldenberg, the UUCB “Kitchen Witch”

Sundays at U.U. are a balance of just enough the same to feel like home and always a different special message–through wonderful music, inspirational readings and sermon, and the personal offerings of a true blend of interesting people open to sharing their spirit.
