Welcoming LGBTQ

Welcome!

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

'Tending the Circle, Mending the World' Sunday, Oct. 2 at Live Oak
A service in Honor of the Jewish High Holy Days

Live Oak's Richard Stromer and Jay Roller will lead our annual observance of the Jewish High Holy Days on Sunday, Oct. 2.

We will explore the important Judaic practice of Tikkun Olam, commonly translated as “repairing or mending the world.” 

Tikkun Olam, which has roots dating back to the second century, has become a centerpiece of modern liberal Judaism. Deeply resonant with Unitarian Universalism’s own historical commitment to fighting oppression, the practice of Tikkun Olam is connected with many forms of social action, from racial and environmental justice to the women’s and LGBTQ liberation movements.

This service will also include our annual “Ritual of Letting Go.” Like the age-old Jewish custom on which it is based, this spiritual practice encourages us to self-reflection, hope, and renewal at this season of the year.

Our services start at 4 p.m. at
Christ Episcopal Church in Alameda.  Please follow the protocols for live services 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 on Zoom.

The Choir Has Returned, And So Have Community Meals


Live Oak has resumed in-person services at Christ Episcopal Church.

After a brief reprieve, community meals have also returned after the service. 

Everyone in attendance should be vaccinated, please. 

Every member of the choir, and anyone speaking at the service, will have passed a negative COVID test prior to the service.


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

 - keep Sanctuary doors open for air

 - ask everyone to wear N95 masks (and provide them),

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

  We invite all to stay after the service for conversation and time to socialize masked.

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

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  info@uuliveoak.org if you would like the codes.
