Founded in 1952, the Fairhope Unitarian Fellowship is one of over 1,000 congregations around the country comprising the Unitarian Universalist Association. We are a diverse, free-thinking group with many different backgrounds, brought together by our desire for friendship, community, and commitment to Unitarian principles and purposes. We do not have a minister. Rather, we have a guest speaker each week. Often the speaker is someone from the community, or from our own Fellowship, with special knowledge about a topic of interest that somehow relates to one of the seven UU principles. Sometimes the speaker is a visiting cleric, perhaps Unitarian, perhaps from another religion. We gather wisdom from the world's religions to deepen our understanding and to expand our vision.
