Many people think Unitarian Universalism is a new religion that might have had its start in the last 100 years or so. The fact is that Unitarian Universalism has roots that go back to the founding of Christianity. This congregation has roots that go back to the first settlers of Lynn and Swampscott by Europeans in the 16th century. This section of the website will tell you a little bit about this rich history.

History of this Congregation: Our church can trace its roots to the very first church established in Lynn in 1629. Learn about the nearly 300 years of history of this congregation.

History of Unitarian Universalism: Our faith tradition is actually the merger of two faith traditions that occurred in 1961. However, Unitarianism and Universalism go back to the very early days of Christianity and played key roles in the founding of this country.
