Adult Learning at UU Wellesley is coordinated by the UU Learning Community (UULC). Our charge is to create a program consistent with Unitarian Universalist principles, through which personal growth is fostered and community bonds strengthened. The UULC offers a wide variety of workshops and events led by members, clergy, and friends of our church, as well as outside speakers, who volunteer to share their expertise or interests. The UULC often partners with leaders of our Social Justice initiatives to examine topics of shared concern. Many programs are open to the public.
The UULC welcomes new ideas for Learning while Connecting! Bring yours to our next meeting. Email the church office HERE for more information.

Lives that Speak and Deeds that Beckon
Join John Nichols for a Q&A about his book Lives that Speak and Deeds that Beckon: A History of the Unitarian Society of Wellesley Hills. John will highlight stories from which we can draw lessons about the Ministerial Search process. Knowing who we have been will help us define who we want to be, a congregational goal for the year.
