What happens when I am a first-time visitor?

You will “come home” to a place you’ve never been before. We offer you an information brochure with a registration card. When you turn in the card, we’ll email you more info. The card will help us to keep you connected to information about programs and services at Unity of Tampa. Please include your email address, and we will send you our weekly eNewsletter.

We avoid stopping by your home unless you specifically request a visit. Your contact information will not be shared or sold. We protect your privacy.

In the Fellowship Hall, we’ll introduce you to our community, including our minister. Don’t be shy. We were in your shoes once.

What do I wear?

Clothes! Unity is a welcoming place with a casual environment where you can come as you are. You can wear a dress or a suit and tie, but most people will be dressed casually.

What denomination are you?

The Unity movement was started by a married couple in 1889 in Kansas City, MO, and has more than 1,000 congregations worldwide. Unity is a non-denominational community in which everyone is welcome. Unity accepted LGBTQ in the early 1970s (before it was cool).

While starting with a Christian paradigm, people of all faiths find Unity teachings are positive, practical and progressive. Learn more about Unity.

I have children; do you have activities for them during your services?

We have fun and meaningful children’s programs, offered at the same time as our Sunday service (10 a.m.). Come to the foyer to check in with the youth teacher. Near the beginning of the service, we bless the children and they are escorted to the youth and family area for a spiritual lesson. Parents can pick them up after the service. The youth area is adjacent to the Fellowship Hall. Learn more about our programs for youth.

What about teenagers?

We currently have no separate program for teenagers. We hope to have one soon. In the meantime, they are welcome to join you in the service.

We now average about 50 people per week. And we have prepared a place for you, in a sanctuary that holds 250 people.

We have discussion groups and classes. Check our Calendar.
