Welcoming LGBTQ


We create loving community
through worship and service to others

Live Oak is a progressive spiritual community in the heart of Alameda. We walk diverse paths to find meaning and purpose but are united by our belief in the worth and dignity of all, and the obligation to express our faith through acts of justice and compassion. Join us as we create a diverse, spirit-growing, justice-seeking community.

The church building where we usually meet IS CURRENTLY CLOSED, BUT WE ARE NOT!

While the campus is closed, we continue to meet for worship and fellowship -- ONLINE -- on the first and third Sundays of the month at our usual time -- 4 p.m.! Join us for worship. If you are not on our regular email list but would like to experience one of our on-line services, send a request to Give us a bit of info about yourself and how best to reach you in the future and we'll send you a link to join us in worship for our next service. (Next service date and topic are listed below).

If you regularly receive emails from Live Oak UU Fellowship about upcoming worship services (and other activities), you will receive an email with access information for the next worship service.

Watch Sunday's Virtual Choir Performance Again

Live Oak's Virtual Choir gave its most ambitious performance yet on Sunday, with eight choir members singing "What Wonderous Love."
Susan Mashiyama once again coordinated and compiled this impressive effort.
Previously, the largest number of performers was four. In addition, Kathleen Baumgardner of the UU Church in Berkeley joined the Live Oak Choir for this performance; 
This is the third virtual choir performance Susan has managed and performed for us.  


We want everyone to be well and stay safe. We will continue to stay in touch with members and friends and to update this site with any news. Until then, please take care of yourselves, your friends, and your loved ones. We are thinking of you and will stay connected in other ways. Be well. ~ from both your Live Oak UU Worship Team and the Live Oak UU Board of Trustees.
