Vibrant UU global communities during a time of pandemic

Unitarian centres around the globe are switching to online services to continue worship and community engagement during the current coronavirus pandemic. In most cases, we’re interested in maintaining strong connection and support for people in our immediate geographic community, but we are also part of a global community. Outlined below are some of the many online services  currently available. In most cases you can just drop in, but in some instances, you may need to be invited. For a taste of the richness of the UU community world-wide, check some of these out!
