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.

Sunday Worship

Join us this Sunday at 11:30am in the Sanctuary at our shared campus. Extra parking is available across Oltorf at Travis High School.

Spirituality, Mental Health, and the Church

Rev. Brian Ferguson, Minister

Unitarian Universalist congregations, at our best, desire to be a religious home to a diversity of people and seek to be a place of healing.  People seek out religious community for a variety of reasons and come to us in various states of health and pain.  One of our biggest struggles in our wider society is the increasing number of people struggling with Mental Health concerns.  Religion can both contribute to this problem and also be a vital community resource in helping those struggling with mental health concerns.  This worship service will explore our mental health epidemic in our country, the spiritual issues this raises, and how the Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church can support those struggling with mental health concerns.

Serenity Service

Join us for an interfaith service of music, readings, candles, and silence every third Friday of the month (next is December 16) at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary on our shared campus.

What's Unitarian Universalism all About?

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.

The Pre-K – First Grade Fall Program: Love Surrounds Us focuses on the Seven Principles. The Second – Fifth Grades Fall Program: Love Will Guide Us teaches participants to seek guidance in life through the lens of our Unitarian Universalist Sources. The Middle and High School Youth program is Hot Topics: Exploring UU modern social justice through discussions, modern media and resources.

Some people and communities are feeling fearful and vulnerable given the current post-election climate.
