The sixth principle of Unitarian Universalism affirms “the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.” As a religious body feeling a deep responsibility to our community, and wishing to be an influence in enriching our community’s religious, ethical, and cultural life, we encourage use of our church building and grounds by a wide variety of groups whose activities are compatible with the church’s mission and seven principles of the UUA.
In keeping with these goals, the church dedicated its building and grounds as a Peace Site in December of 1988. This program is intended to provide space for grassroots groups to organize, and for educational forums on issues of peace and justice. State and local non-profit groups whose missions are consistent with the principles of the UUA and who are working for peace, or social, economic, or environmental justice may apply to use our building for free or reduced fees under the Peace Site program.
Our community partners who have used our Peace Site include American Friends Service Committee, NH Peace Action, the Building a Culture of Peace forum, New American Africans, 350-NH, and others.
For more information about the Peace Site program or to find out if your group might qualify for use of our Peace Site, please contact the church office at (603) 224-0291, ext 4#.
