Welcome to our Spiritual Community


Welcome to the Unitarian Church of Montpelier. We have been a religious home for open-minded Vermonters since 1864. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people-- of all ages, classes, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities and  sexual orientations--into our community.

Services are held weekly beginning the first Sunday after Labor day and ending the second Sunday in June. Worship and church school are held Sundays at 10:00am. Office hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Braille and large-print hymnals as well as listening devices are available for Sunday services.

Our beloved Director of Music, Catherine Orr, passed away just before midnight on Thursday, April 30th.  She died peacefully at home with her husband, Bill, and three of her brothers by her side.  She had been under hospice care.  We extend our love and sympathy to her family. A Memorial Service will be held on Sunday, May 24 at 2 pm at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier.

We are very excited to announce that the congregation has voted to call The Reverend Joan Javier-Duval to be the Settled Minister of the Unitarian Church of Montpelier!

Our Mission

We welcome all
