Chorlton Unitarians

Who We Are

We are people seeking truth, meaning, love, and deep connection.

Our congregational covenant:

We covenant together, in deed not creed, committing to our shared intention:
To seek truth, meaning, love and deep connection
To act justly, to love kindness, and to travel together respectfully,
Seeking to understand ourselves, each other and all beings as unique reflections of the One Light.

What We Do

We are a community of spiritual explorers. 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. We gather several times a week, online and in person, to meditate, explore spirituality, and share our joys and sorrows.

Our Values

We affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We believe in equality for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, faith, or physical and mental health.

We are committed to social responsibility – to making a positive difference in the communities in which we live.

We advocate for peace, justice, liberty, equity and compassion in human relations.

We are open to the sincerely held beliefs of others, without judgment, and aim to learn from one another, believing diversity enriches our lives.

We exercise freedom of conscience and responsibility in our search for truth and meaning.

We are committed to respecting the interdependent web of being of which we are a part.

Our Services

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.

Sunday Gatherings

Services are led by our minister and members of the congregation. All welcome. Please see our What’s On page for this week’s theme.

Meditations

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.

Heart and Soul

Heart and Soul is an online contemplative spiritual gathering in which you can take time to reflect on life in the company of others. 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.
