The Kearsarge Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

 

Our Mission Statement 

The Kearsarge Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a religious community that encourages and affirms beliefs and actions based upon respect for all people, and the planet on which we live. It is the mission of this fellowship to:

  • Deepen our understanding of the world we live in, the challenges we must face as citizens of the world, and the place of our personal theologies in meeting these challenges;
  • Be a voice of peace, reason and social justice in our community;
  • Strengthen that voice by making ourselves known to all who are looking for a liberal religious sanctuary, and welcoming all who come into our midst. This congregation affirms and promotes the full participation of all in our activities and endeavors, including membership, programming, hiring practices, and the calling of religious professionals without regard to race, color, gender, physical or mental challenges, affectional or sexual orientation, age, class, national origin, or political affiliation; and
  • Support, strengthen and renew each other as we strive to lead our lives according to our highest principles, values and beliefs.

Our History

In 1983 a group of some 40 people responded to an advertisement and met to explore the possibilities of a Unitarian Universalist Congregation in the New London area.  From this initial show of interest in liberal religion, a group of 17 charter members formed what is now the Kearsarge Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.  Beginning with two meetings a month at Colby-Sawyer College, the Fellowship later moved to the Masonic Lodge (a former Unitarian Church) in Potter Place which gave us space for religious education and social activities.  The past few years, thanks to the generosity of Proctor Academy, which has Unitarian roots, we have been meeting at the Stone Chapel of Proctor Academy and now meet every Sunday except July through August.  Our members come primarily from Andover, Bradford, Grantham, New London, Springfield, Sunapee, Sutton and Wilmot..
