What to Expect

Warm greetings to all who contemplate their first visit to First Unitarian Church.
We hope that our progressive church community will prove welcoming in all respects.

Service Times

Regular services are held every Sunday, beginning the first Sunday following Labor Day and continuing through the Sunday following Memorial Day.  The first service is at 9:00 a.m. and the second service is at 11:00 a.m. Feel free to attend any of these services and join us afterward for coffee and conversation in Eliot Hall, the room adjoining the sanctuary.

The church is located on the corner of 1300 East and 600 South in Salt Lake City, Utah.


Sunday School

Religious education is available for children and youth during the 11:00 a.m.  Sunday service in the building to the rear of the church.  Childcare is available during both services.  There is also a nursery with a TV link to the service. 

Please click here for more information about our Religious Education program.


Plenty of on-street parking exists plus visitors may use the parking lot of Friendship Manor at the corner of 1300 East and 500 South. Enter the parking lot from either of Friendship Manor's two driveways and make your way south towards the church's 78 parking stalls.
