“Polity” is a general term for the form of church organization adopted by a religious tradition. Unitarian Universalists operate under a particular form of polity called “congregational polity,” defined as “the rights and responsibilities of each properly organized congregation to make its own decisions about its own affairs without recourse to any higher human authority.”  From the Tapestry of Faith

At UUCB, committees form the heart of our organization. From coordinating social justice efforts to keeping our building in good repair, our members serve the community by volunteering to take on the responsibility of the many activities that make up our congregational life. Each year, we elect leaders to serve for one or more annual terms. Together with our professional leaders and staff, they work with groups of members and friends to bring to life our congregation’s mission and goals.
