Where is UU Wellesley?
We are conveniently located just west of the Rt. 9/Rt. 16 intersection (click HERE for directions), but visitors may be confused about how to get into our sprawling building. Enter the driveway marked by a wooden sign across from “Singh’s” restaurant (our driveway is one way, so westbound drivers must pass the exit).
Where should I park and how do I enter the building?
There is reserved parking for first time visitors, several handicapped spots, and general parking to the left and at the back of the building. Most visitors enter the vestibule via the covered entrance on the west/parking lot side. However, we also have doors from the front courtyard, the front Chapel (up some steps), and the rear corner near the fire escape.
What should I expect when I come on Sunday morning?
Click HERE to find out what's happening this coming Sunday. When you enter the vestibule, you will be greeted, asked to fill out a visitor form, and invited to the Welcome Table. The coatroom and rest room are to the left. Young children can be brought to Child Care downstairs. School-aged children stay with their families for the first 15 minutes of the hour-long service; older youth may be meeting separately. Please click HERE if you would like to watch some recent sermons. After the service, everyone gathers for a Social Hour with coffee and assorted snacks. We would be delighted if you join us there.
Is there a dress code?
Wondering what to wear? Come as you are most comfortable. Some people attend services in jeans, others in business or business casual attire; some dress more formally for special occasions. It is entirely up to you.
How will I know if Sunday services are cancelled due to bad weather?
On rare occasions, Sunday services will be cancelled when severe winter weather makes traveling unsafe. If you have questions about whether services are being held, please call the UU Wellesley office at 781.235.7423 and listen to the voice message there.
