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.
Flowers to Share, Beauty to Wake the Senses
April 30, 11:30 AM
Erin Walter, Intern Minister
“These flowers are like ourselves. Different colors and different shapes, and different sizes, each needing different kinds of care—but each beautiful, each important and special, in its own way.” These words were wisely spoken by Unitarian minister Norbert Capek of Prague, Czechoslovakia, who founded our tradition’s flower communion in 1923. If you can, please bring a flower to the service where the congregation, led by Intern Minister Erin Walter, will gather them, bless the diverse beauty of our congregation and world, and then send each person home with a flower as a gift. We are excited that the Wildflower Children and Youth Choir will also make its debut!
Join us for an interfaith service of music, readings, candles, and silence every third Friday of the month (next is this Friday, April 21) at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary on our shared campus.
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.

Discussions around climate change and environmental justice
During the week after Earth Day (April 22), there will be a week of presentations or panel before the People’s Climate March. The aim is to foster understanding of the intersection of justice-related issues and the project of protecting the climate of planet Earth. Some of the events, at various locations are:
- Sun – Faith and Climate Change (tentative)
- Mon – Climate Change Changemakers
- Tues – Climate Change and Gentrification
- Wed – Climate Change and Education at UT
- Thurs – Climate Change & Public Health
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 People's Climate March
The WildEarth Climate Action Team invites you to join us for the Austin People’s Climate March and Rally on Saturday April 29th. To sign up, contact Debbie White.
The march begins at the capital at 1:00 pm. Our tentative plans are to meet in the parking lot of the Westgate Shopping area, past the theater near Western Trails Dr, at 11:30. From there we will take the 803 bus to the Capital. We will have our Wildflower Church banner, but additional posters and signs would be great. Please come and help Wildflower support this most urgent appeal for change. Plan to have a good time also.
Our children’s religious education program serves babies and children through 18 years. We provide childcare every Sunday from 9:30 am to 1 pm for children 1-4 years of age. Children age 4 and above may begin in the Pre-K class when they are developmentally ready. Grades 2-5 attend class together, and youth from 6th-12 grades. Currently, infants remain with their parents. Childcare is available for all ages from 9:30-11:30 am and during Sunday afternoon meetings when requested.
