First Unitarian Church was established in 1866 and originally was housed in a building in downtown Wilmington, Delaware. In 1960, we moved to our current location in Sharpley, at 730 Halstead Road. Over the years, we have added classrooms and office space. In 2002, we purchased the library property adjacent to Concord Pike.
Our offices are open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. We rent space to a daycare facility, the Educational Enrichment Center, during the week. The building is active every day, with committees meeting in classrooms during the evenings, musical groups rehearsing, and special events on weekends. Our busiest day is Sunday, when we hold services in the Sanctuary and children’s religious education classes in the education wing.
