The Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo - We welcome and affirm Disabled People

We have and are in the process of making our historic church building as accessible as possible.  The Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo (UUCB) is on the corner of West Ferry and Elmwood Avenue.  The street address is 695 Elmwood, Buffalo, NY  14222.

Bus:  The 20 Elmwood Bus has a stop at the corner of West Ferry and Elmwood directly in front of our building.
Parking:  Parking is very scarce. Two accessible spaces can be found on West Ferry in front of the church.  Our church parking lot is located off of Elmwood Ave between the bank and the church.  Additional parking can be found in a small lot off of Elmwood.  This lot has several designated accessible parking spots.

The accessible entrance to the building is located through the garden entrance and will bring you into the Parish Hall.  On Sundays, greeters are available at the accessible entrance to assist you. The elevator is to the right once you enter the Parish Hall. The sanctuary is located on the second level.  A directory listing room locations can be found inside the elevator. Service Animals are always welcomed.

Our Welcome/Religious Education Table is in our Parish Hall.  If you enter through the Garden Entrance, the table will be facing you.   Individuals at the table can assist you and answer any questions you may have.  We welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions.  Please ask someone at the Welcome Table to give you an UAIM suggestion card.

There are several Shortened Pews complete with shortened armrests that allow space for wheelchair users or other folks with mobility devices. These are located in several different areas throughout the Sanctuary.
There are also TWO COMFORTABLE, PADDED CHAIRS in the Sanctuary at the back wall of the sanctuary nearest to the Parish Hall Door.   These chairs are for people who need more comfortable seating.

Sunday Services are in Person at 10:30 and there is also a Simultaneous livestream service on YouTube. Click here to access: http://live.buffalouu.orgClosecaptioning is available.
You can also access our past services at this site.

Large-Print Orders of Service are available upon request from our ushers.
The church has installed a Tele-Coil System in the sanctuary.  This system transmits directly from the sanctuary microphone to the hearing aids of people who have a tele-coil setting.  
The Chancel is not accessible.  A floor mike is always available.

At this time, we regret that the building’s restrooms are not accessible.
Men’s and Women’s Restrooms can be found through the doors to the left of the Welcome Table.   Women’s restroom is to the right and Men’s restroom is to the left. Both restrooms have accessible stalls, but may be challenging for people who use wheelchairs or scooters due to limited space.   All restroom doors are heavy, so do not hesitate to ask for assistance.
Fully accessible bathrooms are on the Priority List for our Capital Improvements.

At all church activities, we strive to label all food ingredients when sharing food.  We all strive to have alternative dishes for vegetarian & vegans  

Our Vision
We gather in loving community, creating a shared vision of compassion and dignity for all,
to radically transform the world in which we live.
