The Fellowship is led by its members, who make decisions about activities through an elected board of directors and the annual meeting. In addition to weekly services, the Fellowship offers opportunities for social and community interaction.
Membership in the Unitarian Fellowship of Bennington is open to anyone who wishes to support the mission of the Fellowship. This is achieved by signing the membership book and maintained by participating in its activities. No declaration of creed is required.
The Fellowship is a member of the Unitarian-Universalist Association, which unifies UU congregations in the U.S., Canada and around the world. Unifying our diverse membership are seven Principles and Purposes adopted by the Unitarian-Universalist Association.
We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote
- The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
- Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
- Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
- A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
- The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
- The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
- Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
