Social action and environmental justice are central to our individual and congregational spiritual practice, and this passion manifests itself in many ways. In our worship and fellowship, we encourage each individual to serve the world in the ways that call them and optimize their talents.

Climate action

We have been, and continue to be, leaders in the fight against climate change. The UUCUV was among the first congregations certified as a Green Sanctuary by the UUA., and our members and friends are involved in advocacy and action on climate issues. 



Partner Church

The UUCUV is a member of the UUA's Partner Church Program.  Our partner chuch in Mukhap, India exchanges mail and photos with us, and they've recently dedicated a beautiful new church building!  We are privileged to join our friends in Mukhap by sponsoring the educations of some of the village children.  


social justice and Volunteering

We encourage members to use the UUCUV Facebook Group to share news of local social/ environmental justice events and other opportunities of interest.

On the first Monday of every other month, the UUCUV prepares and serves dinner for around eighty guests at the LISTEN Community Dinner Hall at River Point Plaza, White River Junction, VT. Ours is one of forty-five volunteer cook teams that participate in preparing these free community meals that are served throughout the year Monday through Saturday. These dinners are prepared under the auspices of LISTEN Community Services. To learn more about LISTEN dinners, contact Suzanne Simon through the office:

Every we collect food, personal care items, and cash donations that members and friends have brought to the service so that these donations can be delivered to The Haven.  These items are collected in a basket in the sanctuary.
