Faces are not shown, but it is evident the group includes people of varying ages, sizes, abilities, and gender. Circling the GA letters are the words "Love Unites Stories Ignite" and"General Assembly - Virtual - June 20-23, 2024". The laptop sits on a clean desk made of blonde wood. There is a white coffee cup to the left and a succulent plant in a white planter to the right. A cell phone sits on top of a blue notebook in front of the plant.
GA Watch Parties

Planning to host a GA watch party? Watch parties offer a wonderful opportunity for local UUs to gather and enjoy publicly streamed events like General Sessions and Sunday Morning Worship. For non-public events (i.e. Service of the Living Tradition, Synergy, Ware Lecture, or Featured Speakers), GA registration is required for all viewers. Additionally, watch party hosts should complete this Watch Party Sign-Up form, which will provide data on the popularity and viewership of GA content as well as aid in analyzing production costs based on participation preferences. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
