Unity in the Heart of Austin

At our Sunday service on October 19th we announced our new name: Unity in the Heart of Austin. Over the next few weeks we will be migrating our website, stationary, and legal documents to our new name.

We decided to change our name for two reasons: to detach from the precise location of downtown Austin; and to meet the branding requirements that Unity Worldwide Ministries recommends for all Unity churches.

We want to thank to naming committee for their work in bringing four candidate names forward to the Board of Trustees. In addition, we would like to thank the congregation for its input in the recent meetings to discuss ideas and preferences for a new name.

We will file a DBA (doing business as) statement with the Texas Secretary of State's office for our new name. Our legal name for incorporation will remain Downtown Unity Circle. Until we announce the legal transformation is complete please continue to write your donation checks to "Downtown Unity Circle."

Welcome To Everyone

You Are BeautifulUnity in the Heart of Austin is a progressive spiritual community in central Austin just 1.5 miles south of the river near Travis Heights, SoCo, St. Edwards University and Riverside student appartments.  Our new Celebration Center is easily accessible from Interstate 35.

Our spiritual "adventure" is to find God in everything and everyone.  Your race, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation, or whatever some group may have once told you made you unwanted, probably doesn't matter to us.  And, you don't need a stylish suit or dress either, because dress is casual.

Lesson for This Coming Sunday

My Lesson Title for Sunday, Oct 26, is "The Mask and the Mirror" an exploration of our Personality, our Individuality and living from our Spiritual Self.

Our Music will be provided by our very own Spiritual Jazz Artist, Billy Winston.

The service will start at 10:30am. We are located at 2801 S. IH-35. Come join us. Everyone is welcome!

Love and Blessings!

What's So Different About Unity?

UnityDowntown Unity is a progressive and adventuresome spiritual community.
What do we mean by "adventuresome?" We are less prescriptive than most. We try to provide you the tools to find your spiritual path; and to find God in everything and everyone.

We are members of Unity Worldwide Ministries. Unity offers practical spiritual teachings that empower people to lead healthy, abundant and meaningful lives. Many say Unity practices "practical Christianity."

Unity provides an alternative to negative religious experiences. We are inclusive and open-minded. We encourage personal initiative and growth.

We believe that prayer works! We strive to help people find a stronger connection to God every day and we honor all paths to God.

We have inspiring ministers and are involved in social action... and social activities. We believe in making a difference in the world. And we believe in being a positive example and role model.

Prayer Support

Our prayer chaplains are available to support you through prayer. You can email a request to chaplains@gmail.com or pray with any of our five chaplains following the service. During the week, you can contact the "Chaplain on Duty" by calling 512-373-0389.

In addition, Silent Unity is available 24/7 by calling 800-NOW-PRAY (669-7729). Anytime you feel the need for prayer for yourself or a loved one don't hesitate to call. It is a previledge to serve you and God through prayer.
