What Members Say

When I moved to Ventura, I left many good friends behind. I needed to find a community, where I could connect and make some new friends. I found UU online and found some activities of interest. It was easy to meet up with interesting people who are so open, curious and involved in the world around them.

I love this church! Rev. Dana is awesome, everyone is warm and welcoming, and there are lots of activities to participate in every day of the week.

I have been a Unitarian since 1952. As a Unitarian Universalist my ideas on life have been challenged and most of the time changed to hopefully be a better person.
