What is Unity?


The Community of Unity of Portland was founded

in 1925 by Rev. Marion Lance.

The current building was completed and 

Unity of Portland

had their first service here on Easter Sunday, 1958.


We have since celebrated our 90th anniversary and are looking forward to a transformative tenth decade as a Heart Centered Community.

Living Love, Teaching Truth,  Serving Spirit and Practicing Peace.


Our Vision

Unity of Portland has been a vibrant, transformative spiritual center 

dedicated to serving and empowering people for over 90 years. 


Unity Welcomes All! 

As people we all have many spiritual backgrounds, beliefs, creeds, sexual orientations and social backgrounds.

We include all people. There are no exceptions, you are welcome here!   

So congratulations, you're just like us! 



Unity offers tools that individuals may change their life with.


It’s an exciting time to be here because

 we are being asked to evolve individually, collectively, globally.

We know that positive, empowering transformation is occurring in our everyday lives! 


Stop in and check us out.

When you’re ready, we’ll support you in making friends

and finding ways to have meaningful connections within the Unity Community.


We hope to inspire happier lives.

If you are looking for a spiritual community of loving people to grow with,

this might be the place for you.
