Denominational Affairs

The Melrose Unitarian Universalist Church is a member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and the New England UUA Region. There are 16 UUA Regions in the United States.

The New England UUA Region includes what used to be our own Massachusetts Bay District (MBD – serving 53 Eastern Massachusetts congregations) and four other Districts that were across New England. These Districts all voted to dissolve as single units and combine into the New England Region.

We spread news of the work of both the UUA and the Region and how local congregations can utilize their resources and programs and, when appropriate, partner with them. While we here in Melrose have our own very robust church community, think about how fortunate we are to have all the wonderful resources and history of our UUA.
