Wildflower Church is a deliberately inclusive, open-minded religious community in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, growing spiritually together, spreading love, justice, and joy! We create our community by covenanting one to another, using our Covenant of Right Relations. We meet in South Austin, at our shared campus.
The Spirit of Community
Rev. Brian Ferguson
In religious community we often talk about spiritual growth and usually refer to such growth in reference to an individual. Our third principle affirms "Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations". What about the Spiritual Growth as a congregation—what would this look like, how can we tell it is happening and how can we encourage it? This worship service will explore these questions and our congregational identity at Wildflower as a Spiritual and Religious Community.
Visit the Adult Programs page for a complete listing of groups and courses. Childcare is available for Sunday classes between 9:30 and 1, and may be available for other classes and groups.

- You get to check the task off your to-do list!
Are you shopping for a church home that doesn’t require commitment to any specific metaphysical beliefs? Unitarian Universalism is a non-credal religion that draws wisdom from many religions, literature, art, and science, and interprets it through a concrete set of principles. We believe in Standing on the Side of Love for all the world’s people. You can explore the covenant, mission, values, and vision of Wildflower online.
Every fall and spring, UU women gather at our Texas UU camp for a weekend of relaxing, fun, and sharing. This is a weekend to recharge your body, mind, and spirit in the companionship of other UU women. You will have few responsibilities other than to be your own true beautiful authentic self. We’ll sing, dance, meditate, write, talk, hike in the Hill Country, walk a labyrinth, lounge, and do whatever our spirits need. This is a weekend you don’t want to miss!
