UUA Districts & Regions

The Massachusetts Bay District is made up of 53 congregations in the Greater Boston Area. Each Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregation is a member of  the Unitarian Universalist Association, yet each congregation is a self-governing community. Alternatively called a church, a society, or a fellowship, each congregation adopts its own bylaws, elects its own officers, approves its own budget, and either ordains its own minister or is lay led. Congregations can be small—fewer than 20 members—or large—more than a thousand members. At the district annual meeting on April 23, 2016, delegates voted to begin the process of dissolution over the next year as New England's four districts continue to strengthen their regional collaboration.
