About Our Fellowship

With its historical roots in the Jewish and Christian traditions, Unitarian Universalism keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves. Our religious perspectives are characterized by a balance of reason and belief, intellect and intuition, a commitment to spiritual and ethical values, and a celebration of life.

One of 12 UU congregations in Suffolk County, Nassau County and Queens, our Fellowship serves Long Island's North Shore from Northport to the North Fork. We were formed in 1962, built our current building in 1976, and completed a major expansion in 2005. With more than 200 members, we're committed to the democratic process in the life of our congregation and to society at large. Ours is a religion that asks for individual faith exploration and for all to agree to Seven Principles that transcend all creeds.

Our operations are directed by an elected Board of Trustees and a small professional staff. Volunteers play an active and important role.

We are an intentionally diverse community, embracing persons of many spiritual paths and traditions, all sharing a desire to worship, learn, serve and celebrate together.

We are an inclusive congregation. We welcome all who share our philosophy regardless of age, race, or sexual orientation. Would you like to get to know us? The best way is to come see, think, and explore with us. A warm welcome awaits you at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook.

We hold services every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. For directions, click here or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
