Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is a congregation of UUs serving the San Francisco Bay area, especially Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, Piedmont, San Leandro, and nearby communities.
We create loving community
and service to others.
Live Oak is a growing, multigenerational congregation grounded in the history and heritage of liberal religion. Our shared ministry enlists the whole church family in living out the values we proclaim -- at home, at church, and in the world. We welcome all -- seekers of every religious background
with no distinction of class, nationality, race, gender or sexual orientation.
Live Oak UU has moved to a larger space, one that is fully wheelchair accessible! We look forward to seeing you in our new home: 1700 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda (in the Christ Episcopal Church building at the corner of Santa Clara and Grand).
In an increasingly impersonal, modern secular world, we aspire to be a larger family to one another.
Starting NEXT month (June), we will meet three Sundays a month -- and by the fall, we hope to meet every Sunday. Join us at 4:00 p.m. in our church home, 1700 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda (in Christ Episcopal Church).
On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, we meet for worship in the sanctuary. On the 2nd Sundays of the month, we meet for a new program we are calling, Speaking Of ... Second Sundays. On these Sundays we will gather in the parish hall (behind and just to the left of the main sanctuary building) for an opportunity to share in some ritual, a song or two, and a discussion. Child care will be provided.
On 1st & 3rd Sundays, children and youth join the adults for the first 15 minutes of the worship service, which includes a story for all ages. Children and their teachers then head to their classrooms. Children are, of course, always welcome to stay with a parent in the service.
On 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Sundays, a light supper after: Many friends and members stay after the program for a fellowship meal. Everyone is invited to stay to get to know us and to break bread together. We hope you will join us.

Living on the Leading Edge: The Role of Liberal Religion Now
Guest Minister: Rev. Cat Cox; Worship Associate: Richard Stromer
At this time of cultural and planetary upheaval and challenge on so many fronts, there is still enormous reason for hope. There are new, creative forces in play that have tremendous potential for making a crucial difference, and liberal religion has a central role to play in increasing their scope and impact. Join us in exploring how the shared ministry of our faith can help carry us over the tipping point.
We welcome back to our pulpit Rev. Cat Cox, a UU minister and Interfaith Spiritual Director. She holds Masters' degrees from Starr King School for the Ministry and UC Berkeley and serves on the Board of the UU Society for Community Ministry.
