First Unitarian Society of Denver, a member congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association, is an urban sanctuary located in the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood, just 11 blocks east of the Colorado State Capitol. Our sanctuary holds 235, small enough to feel intimate in a concert setting. First Unitarian’s main level was renovated in 2018. We are excited to share our beautiful new space!

Parking at First Unitarian

Being an urban church, finding parking can be a challenge. When possible, we encourage carpooling. We have a bike rack in front of the church and are accessible by bus routes 10, 12, & 15. If you are driving, arrive early, and be prepared to walk a block or two.
