The names of UU congregations are sometimes a contentious issue. Some people don’t like to go to a place named a “church,” while others feel distinctly uninspired by attending a “society,” “fellowship,” or “congregation.” During the most recent, largely humanist-dominated phase of Unitarian-Universalism, there has been a grassroots movement to change the names of historic congregations away from titles including “church.” Nonetheless, a great many retain the title church (of course, many never had church in the title to begin with).
