Our UUA's Congregational Life department is pleased to offer Cambridge Connections, a web page devoted to services offered to congregations by congregations. Cambridge Connections services strengthen and connect our congregations, and grow our faith.
We named this resource after the Cambridge Platform of 1648, from which Unitarian Universalists derive our understanding of congregational polity, membership, and church officers. The Cambridge Platform urges our congregations "to maintain a holy fellowship…in performing such other spiritual services as tend to their mutual edification, as also in relieving each other in outward things, according to their several abilities and necessities."
This page is a pilot project, and is still in development. Look for additional services and the ability to rate services soon! If your congregation would like to offer proven services with broad appeal to other congregations, please send information about your services to your regional staff for consideration.
