What people are saying about our church:

“Unity of Asheville relit my passion for writing and playing music. It was Robert who encouraged me to share my music at the church and when I did my creative juices started flowing again. That was about 12 years ago and now I’m a regular musician at the church. Unity of Asheville is inclusive and welcoming. It is my spiritual home here in these magnificent mountains.”

“I like the simplicity of the philosophy, the inclusivity of the congregation and absence of dogma at the Unity Church of Asheville.”

“I have been a member of the Unity of Asheville congregation for nearly 20 years. This is a dynamic church that develops like a vibrant/healthy hard wood tree. Always good, but ever better, Unity Church has inspired me to do my very best to be likewise. I find the congregation to be consistent, one and all, spiritual seekers. It is plain to see that the ministers, Luanne Algood and Robert Akers earnestly manage their own spiritual growth, and use what they learn to give great spiritual care and inspiration to every person who has the good fortune to find their way to this church.”

“I like Unity church of Asheville because it's ministers present Unity and other New Thought ideas in a spiritually uplifting  and  entertaining way. They promote an atmosphere of community and acceptance for regulars and visitors alike. I always feel loved and valued when I attend services at Unity of Asheville!”

“I really enjoy attending the Unity Church of Asheville. We have four ministers, one for each Sunday of the month. Each minister has their own way of presenting spiritual ideas which allows for every Sunday message to be unique and inspiring. The people attending the church tend to be very broad minded and open to exploring new ideas. I think attending this church really helps me to continue down the path of spiritual growth and evolution.”

“I love the Unity Church of Asheville because it is my spiritual home. I felt literally at home at this place and with these people from the very beginning of discovering the church many years ago. The Ministers are easy to relate to, and they inspire and uplift me with messages about love, community, and peace. The guided meditations are grounding and beautiful. The congregation shares their gifts of music, writing, art, and unique forms of meditation. I love that the community is small and that all voices matter. Truly a place of Unity, where we are reminded to live from a place of love and inspired to be our very best.”

“I have been a member of Unity for almost 30 years.  I have lived in a few different places over the years and moved to Asheville three years ago. I looked for a new church home and found it at Unity of Asheville. It is a very small church community with a rotating cast of ministers and musicians. I love their uplifting messages and most of the time the music is what you would expect at a (much bigger) Unity church. Please stop by any Sunday and find out for yourself!”

“I really like your church. It reminds me of a mushroom house nestled back in the woods.”


“Loving, spiritually centered group. All are welcomed and blessed!”


“Where friends become family and healing energy is strong and follows you throughout the week.”

“The Unity Church of Asheville is a warm and ever so welcoming community that has mastered the art of hosting meaningful and uplifting online services and thought provoking midweek discussions during the pandemic. It has filled a spiritual void even though I am miles away while my own church is not meeting. Every week the message seems to be just what I need to hear. The service is enhanced and personized by members contributions of music, poetry and readings. Well done, Unity, and thank you.”


“I absolutely love each service that I attend -
They are smart, and spiritual and of the spirit.
I do not consider myself religious nor buy into the punishing GOD
Patriarchy. This is a service for intelligent people of the heart who gather and share earnestly.
Between the music that is 100% original (and no you dont have to sing) and Luannes natural channeling of information, I think you’ll enjoy this experience. I even moved back to NJ and am still trying to be a part of as often as possible. Thanks for letting me share :)”


“This is a small church with a big huge heart. Teachers of love and Christ meet here and if you are a musician you can join in the music celebration and share your talent.”


“A great place free of the constraints of dogma offering thoughts and ideas that challenge our minds and souls.”

We have several talented writers in our community.
