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.

We have returned to live services, including our choir and community meals after the service. Please look below for the particulars of attending live. The services are also available on Zoom. 

Our services start at 4 p.m. on the first and third Sundays of each month and are held at Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.

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 on Zoom.

Please contact us at if you would like the codes.

Live Oak Recommends
Wearing A Mask At Our Services

Live Oak is applying these Covid precautions for in-person services:

  - ask everyone to wear N95 masks.

  - any unmasked singer or speaker must take a home Covid test with negative results on Sunday morning.

We all have different comfort levels around contact. Please get consent before hugging, shaking hands, etc.

  • We want everyone to be well and stay safe. We will continue to stay in touch with members and friends and 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.
