Welcoming LGBTQ

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 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!

Beginning this Sunday (April 5), we will provide virtual ways to worship, connect and learn while the campus is closed! Our first LIVESTREAM SERVICE will be this SUNDAY, April 5, at 4:00 p.m. The description of the service is 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 this Sunday's worship service.

For more details, please contact

Yes! We Will Have a ZOOM Service This Sunday, April 5 !!

Worship: Sunday, April 5, 4:00 p.m.

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.” ~ Alice Walker

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
” ~ Albert Einstein

The contradictions abound these days. We separate to protect each other. We reach out, but cannot touch. We are connected in joy and sorrow with people we have never met ... in places we have never been. Join us as we come together in worship to renew our shared humanity and celebrate beauty and joy wherever they come to meet us.

Connect with us on-line (not in person) this Sunday, April 5 (at our usual 4:00 p.m. meeting time), using your computer or smart phone and Zoom. We will send an email to our regular attendeess, members, and friends with a link and instructions on how to access the service.

If you are NOT on the Live Oak UU email list, you may ask for access to this worship service by sending an email to NOTE: The service will automatically be posted on our "Past Homilies & Reflections" page, one day after the service. Any interested person is welcome to listen to recordings of previous worship service elements.

We hope you will join us for our first on-line worship service. It looks like this will be our method of gathering for a while. We will work together to create the same loving connection we have when we are able to gather in the sanctuary together.


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 will be thinking of you and each other and will stay connected in other ways. Be well. ~ from both your Live Oak UU Worship Team and our Board of Trustees
