The church building was designed by architect Claude Bragdon, and serves as a wonderful example of his desire to express the spirit of Gothic architecture through an American form, not relying on the conventions of Gothic architecture, but instead focusing on facilitating the reincarnation of its spiritual thrust.

From their website: "Our congregation is a diverse metropolitan group exhibiting a strong intergenerational feeling of family. We are a thriving, friendly group characterized by enthusiasm and activity. Each of us has an opportunity to participate in a variety of church and social activities. We strive to practice the Unitarian Universalist qualities of equality and tolerance which encompass a wide range of religious ideas and beliefs."

The church believes in marriage equality, holding that anyone should have the right to marry regardless of their gender.

They are a Host Congregation for RAIHN.
