Massachusetts Bay District

The Massachusetts Bay District is made up of 53 congregations in the Greater Boston Area. Each Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregation is a member of  the Unitarian Universalist Association, yet each congregation is a self-governing community. Alternatively called a church, a society, or a fellowship, each congregation adopts its own bylaws, elects its own officers, approves its own budget, and either ordains its own minister or is lay led. Congregations can be small – fewer than 20 members – or large – more than a thousand members.
