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
and service to others.
Live Oak is a progressive religious 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 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).
Join us in the sanctuary for worship and music on 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sundays. On 2nd Sundays, we meet in the Guild Room for classes, discussions, and other ways of being in community. Join us for UU American Roots, a class offered for 5 months (Feb-June, 2015) on 2nd Sundays. (The Guild Room is in the building just behind and a little to the left of the main sanctuary building.) Things vary on 5th Sundays. Watch here for information about them.
Children and youth join the adults for the first 15 minutes of each worship service, which includes music and a story for all ages. Children and their teachers then head to their classrooms. Several times a year, the children stay and participate with the adults in a multi-generational service. Children are, of course, always welcome to stay with a parent in the service. Likewise, parents are always welcome to go into the classroom with their child(ren).
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.

Babies on Board
Worship Leader: Kate Hand; Worship Associate: Peter Hand
"All I ever wanted since I arrived here on earth was the same things I needed as a baby, to go from cold to warm, lonely to held, the vessel to the giver, empty to full."
~ Anne Lamott in Small Victories
We all get sad, mad, and fearful. Usually around the people we love the most. What happens in those moments? What kind of conversations could transform those moments into greater insight, strength, and love? Kate and Peter Hand will explore the spiritual practice of cultivating conversations that build love and connection.
