Slide SERVICES

Services

Our weekly Sunday services are at 11.00 am. Visitors are always welcome to our services and to join us afterwards for tea or coffee in our Garden Room.
Services consist of hymns from one of our three Unitarian hymn books with accompaniment from our magnificent and recently restored 1862 organ; prayers; readings (which might be from religious or secular sources) and an address from the Minister, on a wide-ranging and challenging series of topics, often relevant to the time of year, to a festival or to a day of commemoration or remembrance.  Some services are accompanied by a musical offering, either on the piano or from our singing group.

Coronavirus
During the 2020/2021 Covid pandemic there were many months when, due to Lockdown restrictions, normal services could not be held in the chapel. As an alternative, services were conducted at a distance with Zoom. Despite initial doubts, the Zoom services were very enjoyable and engaging events, with readings, prayers, music and a homily from our minister. This ‘at-a-distance’ service helped members keep connected with the chapel and each other. Each week, after the service, the homily was placed on the website. In addition, the homilies were published in a booklet, adding new homilies week by week. The updated booklet was then published weekly on the website and are now archived and available to everyone to read.
