UNITY: A Positive Path for Spiritual Living
Are you spiritual, but haven't found a spiritual home that fits?
Unity offers practical, spiritual teachings that empower abundant and meaningful living. Unity is a world-wide movement that was founded in 1889 by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in Kansas City, MO, as part of the growing New Thought movement in America. We refer to ourselves as “culturally Christian and universally inclusive,” meaning that historicaly, our primary inspiration has been from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and the teachings of Jesus Christ. However, we recognize truth in all of the world’s sacred scriptures and faith traditions and view each person as a unique expression of the divine energy we call God (by many names). We affirm each week that we recognize the Divine within each person while honoring the Truth in all spiritual and religious paths. Currently, there are nearly 1,000 Unity churches and study groups around the world. Unity of Charlottesville has been part of the Charlottesville, Virginia area community since 1978.
UNITY WELCOMES ALL PEOPLE, REGARDLESS OF RELIGION, FAITH, OR SPIRITUAL TRADITION, RACE, CREED, OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION.
Unity of Charlottesville is a center for spiritual grouth dedicated to uplifting conciousness in our community and our world. We inspire and empower everyone to joyfully express their unique divinity. Through Unconditional Love, Prayer, Sacred Service, Spiritual Education, Meditation, and Music, we are instruments of transformation.

Unity Prayer Partners are available immediately after the service to pray individually with any person. Healing Helpers are also available after the service to pray in a small group. All prayer is confidential.
Youth Education Programs
Every Sunday, we introduce Truth principles and assist children in integrating them into their daily lives. We have lessons and activities for preschool, grade school and middle school ages. High school teens participate in our Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) program.
Pastoral Counseling at Unity is based on a foundation of prayer. We believe that the Presence of God within each individual provides the potential for guidance, understanding and answers sought. Within a safe and loving environment we are dedicated to helping individuals achieve a greater understanding and expression of their potential, individually and in relationship.
