Welcome to the First Unitarian Church of Alton!
We are pleased you have found your way to our website, and perhaps to our way of doing religion. This is a free church, a church that is free of doctrine and creed, so it may be different from any church you have gone to before. Whoever you are, wherever you are on your life’s journey, you are welcome here.
The First Unitarian Church of Alton is a welcoming and inclusive faith community committed to nurturing lifelong spiritual growth and to inspiring lives of love and service which strive toward justice and compassion for our community, our neighbors, and our world.
Peace, compassion and justice for ourselves, our neighbors and our world.
We welcome people of many backgrounds and beliefs. Rather than saying things we may not believe, or believing things we cannot understand, we try to live our lives according to a set of shared Principles and Purposes developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA).
We hold Sunday services in an historic sanctuary whichis one of the loveliest and most inspiring places in Alton. We sing hymns, read words of prophetic men and women, honor milestones, share joys and concerns, and hear a message from our minister or a guest speaker. The church offers many other activities as well, and we invite you to attend any that interest you. To read some short statements from a few in our church community about the reasons they are members of First Unitarian Church of Alton, click here.
Thank you for visiting our website, and we hope to meet you in person soon!
