Danes, in general, tend to be humanistic in orientation just like much of the rest of Scandinavia. This, however, often leads to a somewhat negative orientation toward religion of any kind, especially toward fundamentalism. Many belong to the Danish Lutheran State Church more out of tradition than faith, and there seem to be a growing interest in exploring religious alternatives.

A large percentage of Danes, most likely, function within a Unitarian value system, but these are often the people, who have concluded that religion is of little or no use. Therefore, the Unitarian challenge in Denmark is two-fold; inform about the existence or our liberal, non-dogmatic, anti-fundamentalistic, pro common sense and pro thinking for yourself religion, and change people's minds about the value of religious involvement.

The Danish Unitarian Church was one of the original founding members of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists (ICUU), an organization established (1994) to provide religious education and leadership-training to promote our liberal faith, and assist members in areas where religious liberals are discriminated against.

The church is also a member of the International Association of Religious Freedom (IARF), the oldest and most liberal interfaith organization in the world, started in 1900 by American Unitarians.

Furthermore, the Danish Unitarian Church is a member church of the British General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches (BGAUFCC), with full membership and voting status.
