The city of San Diego has a metropolitan population of over 1,300,000 and is the sixth largest city in the USA. The climate is ideal year round and thousands of people enjoy the ocean and bays for a multitude of water sports. The San Diego Zoo and Sea World are world renowned. The desert and mountains are within an easy 2 hour drive. Yes, we go to the snow to play. It's not by chance that people from all over the world vacation here. If an international visit is your cup of tea, Mexico is only a half hour away.
Founded in June of 1873 by a small group of Unitarian settlers. The present Meeting House, built in 1959 is the fifth building. The order of service proclaims whoever you are, whatever tradition, gender, race, sexual orientation, or age you represent, we welcome you. The San Diego First Unitarian Universalist Church hosted CONVO '86 and looks forward to hosting CONVO '97. We are one of the largest congregations in the continent and have fostered the formation and growth of several other congregations in the San Diego area.
Our mission is to become an increasingly diverse community with differing beliefs yet shared values. In joy and mutual support we offer spiritual nourishment, create beauty, affirm the worth of each individual and honor the democratic process. From this place we encourage all ages to learn and grow together while we labor for compassionate justice in our society and on our planet.
