The Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF) is a congregation of Unitarian Universalists found all over the world. The members may be isolated by chance or by choice, but through the CLF they maintain a spiritual connection to our religion for themselves and their children.

Members receive mailings of Quest, a monthly publication of sermans and other material and uu&me!, a children’s magazine. Also offered are religious education materials and consultation, a loan library of books, audio and videotapes, email lists and a cyber community.
