Services

Stand Chapel interior


Services at Stand Chapel take place every Sunday morning at 11.15am and are usually conducted by our Minister, Rev. Dr. Vernon Marshall.

Services can be viewed as a celebration of our deepest values and consist of an address, music, hymn-singing, readings, prayer and meditation.

Children may join us and, on Family Service Sundays, may adjourn after the first part of the service to their own Sunday School.

All visitors and enquirers are made most welcome and are invited to join us for coffee and a chat after the service.



Stand Chapel is a member congregation of the Unitarian movement that evolved out of a desire to be free from the restrictions of formal creeds and doctrines. The name "Unitarian" was chosen because of a resistence to the doctrine of the Trinity which early members found to be irrational and impossible to justify. Modern Unitarians have a much wider perspective with a vast range of religious opinion. Unitarianism is about being free to find your own place, to be comfortable with your own beliefs and encouraged continually to explore and to challenge.
