Kirkstead (Woodhall Spa)
Leicester Unitarian Fellowship
Leicester Great Meeting
Our chapels extend as far south as Hinckley, as far west as Derby, as far north as Lincoln, and as far east as Boston. We also have such historical gems such as the Old Meeting House at Mansfield, "the chapel in the trees" at Kirkstead (Woodhall Spa), chapel at Belper and the Great Meeting at Leicester. Our Nottingham chapel is probably the centre of the district but unfortunately we no longer own the beautiful gothic Victorian church dating from 1876 in the lace quarter of Nottingham with its William Morris stained glass windows, which is now the "Pitcher and Piano" restaurant, and well worth a visit. Our most recent congregations is Charnwood Unitarian Fellowship which is based at Castle Donington, near the East Midlands Airport and Loughborough.
Come and visit us!
Unitarians are well known for our liberal relaxed attitude to worship and our desire to seek our own understanding of spiritual truths.
Weddings, Relationship Blessings, Child Namings, Funerals and Memorial Services are a special feature of Unitarian congregations - they are always tailored to suit the preferences and beliefs of the individuals and families involved, and many choose a Unitarian service when they find a more 'mainstream' church service would not be appropriate (or, sometimes, possible). A Leaflet about Unitarian Weddings and Relationship Blessings can be found here.
If you like visiting churches and chapels, many of our chapels are unique, have historic architectural features or contain historic treasures. Lincoln chapel has a unique mural, historic wooden pillars and the Disney window. Belper Chapel has historic box pews and the arched catacombs contain the tombs of the Strutt family. Leicester chapel is the earliest completely brick built building in the city. Mansfield has historic stained glass, and Hinckley has two unique tapestries of the tree of life, box pews, an egg-cup pulpit and a parliament clock.
