Services Next Sunday

Sunday 22 February (11.00 am) 

Guest Preacher Alan Ruston

‘Have you got imagination?’

Can we define it and do we think it’s a quality we all possess. Would we admit it if we didn’t have it? Is it a necessity for those following a religious path?

Alan Ruston is an active Unitarian – he became a Unitarian at Newington Green in 1960, and has been active ever since.  GA President in 2002-2003, he has held post associated with most aspects of the Unitarian movement, which he fitted in with being a career civil servant. He is a well-known writer and speaker within British Unitarianism. He is a retired civil servant and lives near Watford in Hertfordshire.

Evening Gathering

‘Intellect and Spirituality’   

 Led by James Chiriyankandath

Do we have to suspend our reason to be spiritual? Is unreasonable spirituality simply superstition? We will consider how our intellects can relate to living a spiritual life, as well as helping us make sense of our material circumstances.
