Our Story

How it all started...

Unity of Fort Lauderdale (UOFL) celebrates 73 years of existence! We were founded in 1951 and met in the Governor’s Club Hotel and then the Women’s Club on Las Olas Blvd.
 
In January 1958, the renowned Rev. Elizabeth Sand Turner took over the leadership of UOFL.  Rev. Sand Turner authored several important books in the Unity curriculum like “Your Hope of Glory” and “Let There Be Light”.  UOFL purchased a house at 210 SE 10th Terrace, but soon attendance required a larger facility.

Expanding the vision...

In 1963, UOFL purchased land at 1800 NE 6th Court in Victoria Park. A prominent local architect Richard C. Reilly designed the Victoria Park location. Ground breaking took place on April 18, 1964. It was dedicated on Thanksgiving 1964, and the educational building opened in 1965.

In 2011, the Victoria Park church was sold. Our beloved stained glass and the “12 Power” stained glass garden stations were lovingly placed into storage.   The "12 Power " stained glass garden stations we eloquently refurbished and installed in the lobby / reception area of our new building at 3331 Northeast 32 Street as a representation of (1) alchemy  (2) honoring our past / co-founders, The Fillmore's (3) transformation, and (4) being laser-focused on what we are creating.

The congregation moved into the old SunTrust bank building on 26th Street in Wilton Manors in 2012. The building proved to be an extensive renovation, and it was sold in 2015.

OUR NEW HOME

Today, UOFL is grateful, that Spirit continues guiding and blessing us!
With that being said,  a new home for Unity of Fort Lauderdale quickly became  true and realized on 6/1/2021.

We are excited to announce that we closed on our new home in the North Beach Neighborhood of Galt Ocean Mile at 3331 Northeast 32 Street Fort Lauderdale, Fl 33308!

This location is  just North of Oakland Park Blvd and just West of A1A, between the Intracoastal Waterway & Atlantic Ocean in Fort Lauderdale.
