Guest Preacher Rev Martin Whitell (London & SE District Minister)

‘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 thefeatures of hope and discover that all need not be lost.

Services Next Sunday:

Sunday 4th September (11am)

Guest Preacher Ingrid Tavkar 

‘Gathering of the Waters’

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 places that are special to them. During the service, people one by one pour their water together into a large bowl. The combined water is symbolic of our shared Unitarian faith coming from many different sources.


Sunday 4th September (7pm)

Evening Gathering

‘Reflections on Water’

Reflecting on the significance of water – a scarce resource threatened and denied to millions around the world. Led by Ingrid Tavkar.
