Search "Words for Worship"

WorshipWeb's mission is to provide resources for Unitarian Universalist (UU) worship services. The inspiring and diverse Words for Worship collection includes readings, prayers, meditations, and more, written by UUs. 

Change is Coming to WorshipWeb

Though it not yet apparent, WorshipWeb has been undergoing a major transition. When the new is launched in spring 2015, WorshipWeb will have a very different look and feel.

  • Content will be tagged and searchable by theme, genre, season, occasion, UU Source, and UU Principle.
  • The number of resources will be much higher, as we’re integrating content from UUA books of prayers and meditations, special worship collections, Tapestry of Faith, and more.

WorshipWeb always welcomes submissions from worship leaders, whether they are religious professionals or creative UUs. We also particularly seek prayers, reflections, and rituals that can be used in small groups, or at home. Sending in your work is simple. It is a gift to UUs around the world.
