Community

Unitarian communityIf Unitarians don’t necessarily believe all the same things then why bother getting together at all? Because to us sharing experience, perspectives, differences and ideas is a powerful way to explore and expand our personal ideas of faith. And where better to enjoy that exploration than in a diverse, tolerant community that welcomes each individual for themselves, complete with their beliefs, doubts and questions?

There are around 170 local congregations in the UK and several national societies. Locally we gather for worship and fellowship and to create a caring community where everyone feels supported in their search for meaning. And joining a national society is a great way to be welcomed into a distinct community in addition to – or even instead of – joining a local congregation.
