Guest Preacher Alan Ruston, ‘Are you a pilgrim?’

It’s claimed we are all on a pilgrimage throughout our lives. However is this the only meaning of the word for religious liberals in the 21st century? We welcome back Alan Ruston, GA President in 2002-2003, who is a well known writer and speaker with British Unitarianism.

Message from the Management Board

Our minister, the Rev. Patrick O’Neill has now retired. We have many wonderful guest preachers to take the services over the next couple of months and hope to have a temporary minister in place to lead all services in the New Year. Meanwhile, we have elected an excellent search committee to seek a new settled minister. We hope to have someone in place in six months to a year’s time.
