Chorlton Unitarians

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.

Sunday Gatherings

Our services start at 10.30 am and last for around an hour. They usually include several songs, readings, one or two periods of prayer and meditation, music, and a short reflection on a theme from the leader. 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.


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.

Unitarian Transformers also holds an online 15 minute ‘midweek stillness’ meditation every Wednesday lunchtime.


Unitarian Transformers offer online gatherings on Wednesday evenings. First Wednesday – Hindu Connections; Second Wednesday – Unitarian Connections (with the National Unitarian Fellowship); Third Wednesday – Spiritual not Religious Connections; Fourth Wednesday – Eco-spirituality Connections.
