Welcome to

All Souls Church! 

At All Souls, our mission is to welcome all who seek fellowship in our liberal religious tradition; to nurture the spiritual well-being of our children and ourselves; to show that people can transcend differences; to nourish and enrich each other in a common spiritual quest; and to provide information and opportunities for members of All Souls and others to act upon the issues of injustice and inequity.

Unitarian Universalist Principles

We affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;

  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;

  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;

  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;

  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all; and

  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

  • We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Worship Leader:  Andrew Baker
Topic:  “Spiritual Play”

Musician:  Brian Bender


What do the words “spiritual play” mean to you? Let that thought germinate like a seed within you.  When I first began thinking about offering what has become an annual sermon at All Souls about nine months ago, the words “spiritual play” bubbled up within me as a theme, a sermon prompt. I’m not sure why. I’ve been ruminating on those words ever since. If you’d like to hear where I’ve been, come and join me at All Souls UU Church in Greenfield on Sunday, April 21 at 10:30 am. If you do, maybe my journey into “spiritual play” will add something to yours. Let’s make it so.

Andrew Baker has been a member of All Souls in Greenfield since 1994. He lives with his wife Andrea Griswold in Shelburne Falls, where they have raised five children and now enjoy seven grandchildren.  He has worked on community development projects in the Pioneer Valley since 1987 and currently works for Holyoke Community College as a workforce training manager and on the Shelburne Select Board. While ruminating on sermons, he also helps bring great movies to the big screen at Pothole Pictures, a volunteer-run community movie theater.

Brian Bender is a multi-instrumentalist (piano, trombone, accordion, percussion...) who's performed at Carnegie Hall, the Presidential Inauguration of Bill Clinton, and is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music.  Locally Brian is in numerous bands ranging from Reggae to Celtic to Jazz, and leads the Klezmer-African-Latin-Caribbean fusion band Little Shop of Horas, which has performed numerous European tours.
