All Souls 2015 Summer Worship Series

From June 14th through Labor Day, join us for our Summer Worship Series, featuring uplifting messages and music led by our dynamic team of All Souls ministers, staff, guests and Lay Worship Associates. Come for the moving messages and the uplifting music from our Musica Viva choir soloists. This year, each of the services will address the theme of what kind of church our world asks us to be, focusing on our desire to "become a prophetic congregation whose members embody the theological imperative to heal the brokenness within our own lives, in our community, and in our world."

Monday-Saturday Stroller Ban in Effect Beginning Aug. 17th

Beginning August 17th, no strollers will be permitted inside the buildings at All Souls from Monday-Saturday. This will be true for ALL guests including members of the All Souls School, and attendees to programs that rent space here in our buildings such as Super Soccer Stars, Free to Be Under Three, Kids In Sports, etc.

Strollers may be parked outside in the Garden, provided that they do no block the staircases and ramp. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Pastoral Care Resource Guide Available

All Souls' Lay Pastoral Associates have compiled the Pastoral Care Resource Guide - a free guide for seniors and their caregivers in need of social services or health information and assistance. The focus is on resources that serve seniors in Manhattan. Click here to learn more.

All Souls Bicentennial 2019

The Bicentennial Steering Committee is starting to plan for our 2019 Bicentennial. We will need everyone's input and help. One of the first things we want to develop is a Distinctive Logo. If you are interested in submitting a design, please contact the committee at

We envision a variety of events and activities to mark this milestone in our Congregation's history. We will have many discussion opportunities to explore ideas and we encourage everyone's participation.

We are a religious community

  • In the experience of worship, we gather to contemplate the mystery of God, interpret the wisdom of religion, and explore the insights of science. Our purpose is to awaken our sense of the sacred and renew our resolve to transform ourselves and our world.
  • As human beings, we all emerge from the same Source and share the same Destiny. As a community of faith, we make shared commitments and offer mutual support. As indivi­duals, we each bear responsibility for our own beliefs and actions.
  • We practice a discipline of gratitude, by which we acknowledge our utter dependence on the people and world around us, and we practice an ethic of gratitude, by which we accept our obligation to nurture others and the world in return.

A Welcoming Congregation

From the UUA website:
"In 1987 the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) established the Common Vision Planning Committee. This committee found many negative attitudes, deep prejudices, and profound ignorance about bisexual, gay, and lesbian people, which resulted in the exclusion of bisexual, gay, and lesbian people from their churches. As a result of these findings, the delegates of the 1989 UUA General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to initiate the Welcoming Congregation program to educate its members....The Welcoming Congregation Program is a completely volunteer program for congregations that see a need to become more inclusive towards bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people."
