New Mission Statement
At the Annual Meeting on June 9, 2013, UCN adopted a new mission statement, which reads as follows » UCN Mission Statement: Our congregation provides a nurturing community, fosters courageous spiritual growth, and inspires compassionate action.
Parking Advisory

Because of our location, we have certain parking challenges. Most of the spaces in our small lot are reserved for handicapped access on Sundays. On Yarmouth Street parking is restricted to resident decal holders at all times except holidays; Grace Street, which runs in front of the church, is subject to routine tidal flooding with brackish water, which is highly corrosive to vehicle parts. The good news is that Sundays the Chrysler Museum allows us to use their outer parking lot until 12:45 PM, and Eastern Virginia Medical School, across the Hague, permits us all-day access to their lot.

Additionally, with the inception of the Norfolk Tide Light Rail service in August 2011, we have public transit virtually at our doorstep. The York/Freemason Station is just a block away from our backdoor. Unfortunately, it does not yet run early enough on Sunday mornings to get you to the church service on time, but it is an option other days of the week.
