Welcome to Third Unitarian Church!
We have many members from Oak Park with the rest coming from the north side of Chicago and farther out suburbs. Members like our size, community spirit, and contributing presence in our city neighborhood.
Third Unitarian Church was founded in 1868 (link to history) on the near west side of Chicago as a center for liberal religion. Our current Landmark church was built near Lake Street and Austin Boulevard in 1934, with a major addition added in 1954. Throughout the period of racial change in the 1960s and 70s, the congregation not only chose to stay, but to work within the Civil Rights movement.
The church enjoys an excellent relationship with its Austin Community neighbors and provides daycare and meeting space, annually awards Austin Scholarships and each February celebrates Black History Month.
