Legacy of our chalice flame

Sunday 2nd October (11.00 am)
‘What legacy do we leave? Investing for our future community’
Service led by Chapel Elders
The Chapel Elders are made up of five long-standing members  of the Rosslyn Hill Unitarian community who are elected by members of the congregation to help uphold the spiritual and civic values of our community as guardians of the Chapel’s heritage. They provide an annual service on related themes, this year focusing on the legacy we can all leave for future members of the congregation. Please join us for what we hope will be a thought-provoking service.

Sunday 2nd October (7.00 pm)
Live Music, Words, Reflection and Silence
Come and join us for meditative music, thought provoking words, followed by silence & reflection. Led by Ingrid Tavkar with piano music from John Evans.


The flowers on Sunday are gifted to the Chapel by Charlie McPherson and Cedric Bergerwho will be married on Saturday. 
If you have a special person or an event to celebrate or remember, please contact Sharron: admin@rosslynhillchapel.com

Our Monthly Charity
This month, inspired by the theme of dance and to mark Black History Month, our chosen charity is IRIE! dance theatre, Britain’s leading dance theatre company working in the field of African & Caribbean dance fusion. Founded in 1985, it sets out to create a repertory of works reflective of the African Caribbean influence on the Black British cultural experience.
