 Dates for your diary:

Sunday 28th August at 7pm: Live Music and Meditation
Join us for another evening gathering where we’ll explore different forms of meditation including body prayer and chanting led by Rev Kate Dean, with live music from John Evans.

Sunday 4th September at 11am: Water Communion

This service, sometimes also called the Water Ceremony, was first used at a Unitarian Universalist congregation in the 1980s.

Members bring to Sunday worship service a small amount of water from a place that is special to them or from a place they have visited over the summer. During the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. As the water is added, each person explains why this water is special to them. The combined water is symbolic of our shared Unitarian faith coming from many different sources.

Sunday 11th September at 7pm: Labyrinth Meditation Peace Walk

We are delighted to welcome Richard Nicols and Aleine Ridge, who will bring a replica of the labyrinth in Chatre Cathedral and help us to walk in meditation for peace. This will be a very special experience, don’t miss it.

Services Next Sunday

 

Sunday 28th August (11am)

Guest Preacher Rev Martin Whitell

‘Don’t give up on hope’ 

Sometimes life seems more complex that we can cope with. The Greek story of Pandora’s box reminds us that when all seems dark, hope still remains.  Our service today will unpack some of the features of hope and discover that all need not be lost.

Evening Gathering

Rev Kate Dean

An informal hour of music and meditation.

Music affects us at many different levels – from being pleasing to the ears to benefiting mental and physical health at a deeper level. We invite you to experience receiving and giving music in a friendly and informal setting.
