Unitarian Church
of Harrisburg

What to Expect

The Unitarian Church of Harrisburg (UCH) is a welcoming religious community. No matter your age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or way of sensing or moving in the world, you are welcome.

Sunday services begin at 10:30 am at 1280 Clover Lane, Harrisburg 17113.

Doors open to the sanctuary 15 minutes before the worship service begins. Check with an usher about a printed Order of Service (also known as a bulletin), a name tag, accommodations for hard of hearing guests, and the location of volunteer-led childcare for babies and toddlers. Please sign the guest book and indicate if you would be interested in receiving the email newsletter.


Worshipping With Our Children and Youth

In-person RE programming using the one room school house model has begun. We will begin our time together with get-to-know-you games and activities, reintroduction/introduction to covenant building and our UU Principles for Pre-School ages – 12th grades. Older youth are invited to participate and assist with our younger children. 

Babies & Toddlers:  Nursery care is offered downstairs in the Potter room. Families of babies and toddlers are welcome to keep their little ones with them in the service, take breaks outside and then return to worship or bring them to our nursery.

More information is available in our Children & Youth RE Newsletter.


Whether a traditional service or a multigenerational service, worship usually includes hymns, meditation, prayer, choral and/or instrumental music, an opportunity to contribute to the offering, and a homily or sermon. We begin each worship service by lighting a flaming chalice, symbol of our Unitarian Universalist faith. There is NOT an expectation that guests will introduce themselves out loud during the worship service.

Members and friends arrive for worship wearing a variety of clothing styles. The majority attend in casual or business casual dress, wearing jeans or slacks or comfortable dresses. Some are in suits or traditional Sunday best. All are welcome.

After worship services, all are welcome to the social hour downstairs in the Common Room. Coffee and tea are available, and often cold beverages and snacks as well.

Sunday worship services are held live in the UCH sanctuary. To protect the health and well being of our membership and community, masks are required. The services will also stream live on YouTube and Zoom.

Service links will be emailed on Sunday mornings. To sign up to receive emails, click here.
