wedding015Our church on the hilltop can be the perfect site for your wedding or other special occasion. The Atrium with its fountain and canopy of trees greets you. Looking past the Terrace doors, you can view the breathtaking panorama of the San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Mt. Tamalpais.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley is a worshipping community, a working community, and a place for the celebrations of life. We acknowledge the human need for a sense of greater purpose. We have no creed, but are open to all who seek to live in truth with love and service. The temple that is our building is for the whole human family.
Church facilities are available for rental by our larger community for rites of passage, corporate events, and special celebrations when the church schedule permits. Saturday weddings are quite popular and tend to be booked far in advance. Please send an e-mail to our Scheduling Coordinator to request an informational brochure or make an appointment for a tour.

  • Terrace

    UUCB terrace looking over San Francisco BayUUCB’s terrace is one of the jewels of our facility. An expanse of red brick, dotted with plantings and surrounded by mature trees, it overlooks the spectacular vista of San Francisco Bay and city skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mt. Tamalpais and the Marin Headlands. On clear days it is the finest “God-given view in the East Bay.” If you’re lucky enough to be here at sunset, prepare to have your breath taken away…
