Welcome Unitarian Society of HartfordVisitorsWelcome If you are searching for a place to worship that will deepen your spiritual perspectives or are seeking a liberal religious education for your children, we hope you find it in this Meeting House. Our members and regular visitors were all newcomers to the Meeting House at some point and we understand that attending a new place of worship can be challenging. We want you to feel welcomed here. There are 15 handicapped parking spaces directly adjacent to the entrance with an accessible automatic door. We are on CT Transit routes 58 Albany Ave and 56 Bloomfield Ave (sadly no Sunday service), and 153 Flatbush/Copaco stops a half mile away at the University of Hartford. Large print hymnals and Orders of Service are always available and hearing loop/assisted listening devices. Please ask at the Welcome Table in the foyer or any usher for assistance. Read more about how we strive to be as accessible as possible. If you would like an orientation tour of the Meeting House, please speak with a Greeter, Board Member or contact the church office to make arrangements. Here are some tips to make your early visits more comfortable: Arrive 10–15 minutes before the service, which starts at 10:30, if possible. Stop by the Welcome Table in the lobby before or after the service. You’ll find a warm greeting, information, support—and a nametag, if you wish. We like to greet our visitors during the service. If you are comfortable, you can introduce yourself to the congregation (or just wave). We invite you to join us after the service for refreshments and conversation in our downstairs Fellowship Hall. You find another Welcome Table, information on programs, congregational initiatives, coffee, tea and other beverages—even a used book sale. Your babies, children, and youth are welcome to attend our Religious Education program or remain with you in worship. A Welcome Table volunteer can answer your questions, introduce you to the RE director and direct you to the classrooms. On the first Sunday of each month, we hold First Sunday Connections, an informal gathering for newcomers. Childcare and refreshments are provided. Suggested dress is casual but neat. We recognize the right of all people to feel safe and comfortable in our Meeting House. We realize that abuse exists in the world and we are committed to protecting our children and youth, our elderly, our people with disabilities and other vulnerable adults as much as possible.
