Please note: All our Monday night programmes – except Poetry Group on 7th Aug at 7.30pm – will be taking a break in August.
Open Chapel every Sunday in August includes a Labyrinth Walk on the 13th
As we did last year, we will hold an Open Chapel every Sunday afternoon in August (6, 13, 20 and 27 Aug). We found we had many visitors, some people had lived in the area for many years and had never set foot inside the chapel. They were surprised and delighted to see the treasures inside. Meeting visitors and showing them around is a great way to reach out to our community.
Can you help us host Open Chapel for a couple of hours (12 – 2pm or 2 – 4pm)? If so, please contact Kate with when you’re available: email@example.comSunday 13th Aug: Afternoon Labyrinth Walking Meditation 2 – 4pm.
As part of Open Chapel, Richard Nickols and Aleine Ridge will be back with their reproduction of the Labyrinth from Chartres Cathedral (pictured here).

Looking ahead to September at the Chapel – ‘Gathering the waters’ when you’re away…
Sunday 10th September – ‘Gathering 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 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. If you’re going away, please remember to bring some water back for this ceremony – or you can use your own tap!
