Sunday Morning Worship
Join us for the largest annual gathering of UUs joining in worship. This powerful, communal worship experience will stream on uua.org/ga Sunday, June 28, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. EDT and again at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Members of the public are welcome to view the service.
Each year a talented group of choral singers perform at the Sunday Morning Worship for the General Assembly audience. Learn about joining the GA Choir.
The worship service will include a collection for the Tomaquag Museum, an indigenous museum featuring an extensive collection and archive of Southern New England tribal communities.
