Covenanting Communities

Covenanting communities are Unitarian Universalist (UU) groups that claim a UU identity but they look and feel different from a traditional congregation.

Covenanting Communities

Related organizations are diverse groups that embrace Unitarian Universalist principles and traditions outside of congregations and covenanting communities. They include member and professional organizations, justice-focused groups, camps and conference centers, and more. Associate organizations are named in UUA bylaws, and are limited to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee and the Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation, two organizations who have an historic connection to the Unitarian Universalist Association.
