All Are Welcome at Our Church

We come from different religious backgrounds, different walks of life, and this enhances our community. Our guiding principle is a belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Accordingly, everyone is welcome in our church, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or faith. We open our doors to you and look forward to the opportunity to get to know you.

About Tapestry Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston

This Church was originally founded in 1995 as Northwest Community Unitarian Universalist Church (NWCUUC). In December 2011, the Church merged with First Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston (First UU), and its name was changed to the Copperfield Campus, and later the Tapestry Campus, of First UU. The Church left the First UU merger in early 2019, and resumed its identity as an independent church as Tapestry Unitarian Universalist Church of Houston. We have been serving the Northwest Houston, Spring, Cypress and Katy communities since early 1995 and has been a haven for free thinkers ever since.

We UUs often say that deeds are more important than creeds. The Social Justice Team is a committee of our church that seeks to facilitate social action in accord with our Faith, our hopes, and the seven ethical Principles that we hold in common:

1. The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
2. Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
3. Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
4. A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
6. The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
7. Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
