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
through worship 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, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Live Oak members and friends waving at the cameraIn an increasingly impersonal, modern secular world, we aspire to be a larger family to one another.

We look forward to welcoming you in our fully wheelchair accessible home: 1700 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda (in the Christ Episcopal Church building at the corner of Santa Clara and Grand).

We meet four Sundays a month. Join us in the sanctuary for worship on 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays. On 2nd Sundays, we meet in the Guild Room for a less formal discussion program, Speaking Of ... Second Sundays. (The Guild Room is behind and just to the left of the main sanctuary building. Child care is provided all four Sundays.

Children and youth join the adults for the first 15 minutes of all worship services, including a story for all ages. Children and their teachers then head to their classrooms. On 1st & 3rd Sundays, the children meet with their teachers for religious education -- and fun! On 2nd & 4th Sundays, children spend casual time together, guided by skilled childcare providers. Children are, of course, always welcome to stay with a parent in the service.

Light supper after: Many friends and members stay after our programs 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.

Jesus, Giant Rabbits, and the Power of Love
Easter bunny photoWorship Leader: Kate Hand; Worship Associate: Mary MacKay

In the 1950 movie, “Harvey,” Jimmy Stewart’s best friend is an invisible giant rabbit (named Harvey) who may or may not be “real.”  Easter celebrates the mystery of transcendence – that the message of radical love preached by an itinerant carpenter did not die with him, but became the foundation of one the world’s great faiths. Whether the mystery is “real” is beside the point. That we are redeemed in tender kindness to one another – that is the point.  Please join us in joyous celebration of Easter!
