“Love is the doctrine of this church, the quest of truth is its sacrament and service is its prayer. To dwell together in peace. To seek knowledge in freedom; to serve humankind in fellowship to the end that all souls shall grow in harmony with the Divine ‚Äî this do we covenant with each other and with God.”Beliefs Our Minister Minister Emeritus Our People Children & Young People Oscailt Book Store
The Dublin Unitarian Church welcomes all in a spirit of freedom, reason and tolerance. Attendance at our services is open to everyone and there is no formal requirement for membership. Those attending regularly are encouraged to participate in church activities and make financial contributions towards the running and upkeep of the church.
The lively congregation which assembles at the 150-year-old church in St Stephen’s Green every Sunday owes its origin to English Puritans who arrived in Ireland in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Although the location of the earliest Meeting House in Dublin remains unknown, by the 1660s the descendants of the first Puritans were meeting in Wood Street, which is situated between Aungier Street and Peter Street.
