In 2020, we are celebrating 38 years of liberal, dogma-free religion
in the Netherlands.
Our services take place every first Sunday of the month and give us time in the middle of our busy lives, time to reflect and enjoy the peaceful warmth of community. They start with a sharing of joys and concerns and generally include a sermon, readings, songs and music, opportunities for people to participate and discuss, as well as time for contemplation. We enjoy celebrating the cycles of life together, whether it is through seasonal festivals, meditations on the meaning of growth and change, or how to live in the moment, as well as UU specific celebrations like Chalica. Topics are varied, from lectures on liberal Islam, to meditation workshops, Druidic rituals, storytelling sessions, and discussions on peacemaking, cultural appropriation and the spiritual repercussions of climate change. Beside our monthly services, we also organize a variety of social events.
About Unitarian Universalism
Unitarian Universalism includes people of many beliefs who share the same values of peace, love and understanding. UUs believe more than one thing, we think for ourselves and reflect together about important questions, and are unified by the search for religious growth and a sense of community.
Unitarian Universalists nowadays take inspiration from a variety of beliefs and backgrounds: Atheist/Agnostic, Humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, Buddhist, Christian, and more.

Everyone owns several dragons. Some are particular to us, others are suddenly dropped on all of our doorsteps and move in without permission. Either way, we have to deal with them. We can fight them to the death or we can give them the run of the place. We can ignore them or try to compromise and come to some understanding. But no matter what, deal with them we must.
In the second of our extra summer services Hjalmar Rosing wil be talking about dealing with fear in uncertain times. Using a Disney movie and two Catholic saints (no, really) as a guide he will try his best to be light hearted about it all. Because, as Stephen Colbert said, you can’t laugh and be afraid at the same time.
