The following is a list of “UU Labs” and related groups on Facebook. The UU labs started with the UU Growth Lab, which I launched in 2011, and was one of the first large UU groups on Facebook. Others quickly spun off. No there are a bazillion UU groups on Facebook.
In August of 2018 I launched a new group to serve as the hub and headquarters for my work, projects, and community on Facebook. While I’m a member of many of these other groups, please join the UU PLANET Community group to participate in the conversations I’m facilitating, including weekly Facebook live Q&A sessions. After launching this new group, I invited UUA staff to take over the leadership of the UU Growth Lab, now the UU Outreach Lab.

Don’t see a lab you are looking for? Either no one has told me it exists yet, or it is inactive and I’ve stopped promoting it. Feel free to send me a message if you’ve launched a lab and would like it listed here.

Hi Peter, I’m very interested in you UU Growth Lab group. I do volunteer publicity and communications at the UU in Pensacola. I am still pretty new to UU and I’m still learning a lot. We do not have an official growth team but I have been participating in our church’s growth efforts. I don’t know how much I can add but I’d love to have the opportunity to see what other’s are doing and be able to ask questions.
Rose, you are welcome to contribute. Just click the link to the group and request to join. Best, Peter
I’d like to join the lab
Peter, I’ve been staying in touch somewhat annonymously since we met at Ferry Beach the summer of ’05
I believe. You were one of the facilitators for the Small Group Ministry course. I would be very interested
in chatting with folks about growth ideas.
I would learn a lot from others I’m sure and would like to share what thoughts/experiences I have
I’m excited to have found you! I am a Covenant Group facilitator, choir member a have a strong interest in attracting teens and college students to UUism. New, fresh ideas are always welcome.
I look forward to participating in this worthwhile blog.
I wonder if we should start a Missional Lab? Or in true missional style would that be too attraction oriented and we should just infect all the other labs with our virus? 🙂 but curious.
Peter I have started a UU lab called “UU Bloggers” (http://www.facebook.com/groups/uubloggers/) on Facebook for all Unitarian Universalist bloggers especially those that blog about UUism or an aspect of it to come together for discussion. Especially discussion regarding blogging best practises, getting your message out there (in this case a UU message) and, attracting and maintaining a following. And thanks for all your wonderful UU growth materials.
