Dorothea Dix UU Community | Bordentown NJ

Welcome to the Dorothea Dix UU Community


DDUUC is a self-governing Unitarian Universalist congregation operating under the principle of congregational polity.  We operate under a set of bylaws drafted by the Board of Trustees and approved by the church membership. Occasionally, the bylaws are revised as the need arises.

Congregational polity is based in our firm commitment to our Fifth Principle: “The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.”

The Board of Trustees does not represent an external authority, but rather it is empowered by members of the congregation to act on its behalf to further the mission and goals of DDUUC.
