A liberal spiritual community
Our congregation was founded in 1890. We are an independent community of spiritual explorers, affiliated to the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches. We have no creed and we are all free to believe according to our own conscience. We share wisdom from a variety of spiritual sources.
What We Do
We gather several times a week, online and in person, to meditate, explore spirituality, and share our joys and sorrows.
Please see our What’s On page for details of our gatherings.
What We Offer
We provide child naming ceremonies, weddings, and funerals, tailored to your unique requirements. We are licensed for both same-sex and opposite-sex marriages. If you are interested in arranging a ceremony, please contact our Minister here.
We also hire out our beautiful community space for user groups, such as yoga and dance classes, meditation fellowships, and children’s groups. If you are interested in hiring our space please contact our Facilities Manager here.

We meditate online with the Unitarian Transformers group on Tuesday evenings. A different meditation every week. No previous experience of meditation required. All welcome. Please see our What’s On page for this week’s theme.

Each session follows a regular pattern, including readings and music, time for guided prayers of gratitude, compassion for others, self-reflection, and silent meditation. All welcome.
