Sidmouth Old Dissenting Meeting House
Sidmouth Unitarian Church
Dissenter of Sidmouth

A nun, a rabbi and an atheist walk into a church... Is this meant to be some kind of joke?
We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, pilgrims… and you.

We offer a special welcome to those who are single, widowed, divorced, married, cohabiting, in a civil partnership, or in a "complicated" relationship.
If you are rich, poor, noisy or shy you are particularly welcome.
Uniquely welcome are toddlers, babies, dogs on strings, teenagers, the elderly, the old, the very old, the very very old, the middle-aged, children and young people, the childless, parents, grandparents and great grandparents, the unemployed, overworked, retired or lazy.
You will feel at home here if you are in recovery, addicted, or trying to give up, angry, disaffected or apathetic.
We offer a specific welcome to the homeless, refugees, immigrants, second home owners, and anyone who is precariously housed or from a gated community.
If your beliefs are Hindu, Sunni, Shia or Ahmaddiya Muslim, Zoroastrian, Jedi, Sikh, Tao, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, Jain, Jew, Druid, Wicca, Bahá’i, Quaker, if you think that “God” if not the answer may be the question, if you’re not sure, if you don't care, or even if you’re born again…
you are accepted.
Atheists and agnostics are specially welcome.


Here you might find fellow-travellers looking for spiritual, artistic and intellectual growth; opportunities to explore and learn; and a rich heritage of over three centuries of dissent and democracy.
