"A Place to Belong"

led by Rev. Laurel Gray


Belonging is often an experience that is deeply rooted in place, in physical spaces that have offered us welcome or care. As a congregation, we are the shepherds of our church building, the people tasked with making sure it is a place of belonging. We are also Universalists and will reflect today on how Universalism asks us to make space.

Board Vista Letter


Hello UUCSW!

Welcome to September and to the 2022-2023 church year. It’s exciting that after two years of virtual worship, we are starting this year in a new way – we’re intentionally hybrid.

There are so many things going on in September....

"Stories in Stone

Sunday, September 25, at 1:30 p.m.


Discover the secrets told by the Puritan gravestones in Westborough's first burial ground, next to Forbes Building on West Main Street. Join local historian Kris Allen to wander through Memorial Cemetery, founded in 1704 when 5-year-old Nahor Rice was buried there, and learn about the earliest folk art of the Puritans (the carved gravestones), the fascinating symbolism, the history of our first and most prominent settlers buried there, plus the benefits of the Community Preservation Act for this historical gem. Hosted by the Unitarian-Universalist Congregational Society of Westborough (UUCSW), free.

Religious Education


There's so much great RE stuff happening this year, I can't wait for it all to get started! Our UU Magical school Silverthorn will be making an appearance (so to speak) in our Circle RE gatherings this year as we get close to Halloween. Get your cloaks and magic wands ready!


Circle RE starts up this Sunday, 10:30 - 11:30 AM at UCMH, 80 Main St., Hudson
