The Unitarian-Universalist Church is a historic church at 20 Forest Street in Stamford, Connecticut. It is a modestly-sized Gothic Revival structure, built out of fieldstone, brick, and granite, in 1870 to a design by Stamford architect Inslee Gage. While most of its exterior windows are stenciled in imitation of stained glass, it has two genuine stained glass windows in the choir loft that are between 400 and 700 years old, and were brought over parishioner Thomas Crane. The church rectory, built 1880, is a handsome Victorian Gothic structure with early elements of Queen Anne styling.[2]

The church complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
