In our lives there are important life events which we sometimes choose to celebrate in community. Here at Walmsley Unitarian Chapel, child blessings are viewed as a choice to welcome children in the ceremony. (I.e; this is not a sacrament/necessary rite of passage.)

Here, spiritual community and a sense of belonging is valued; building connections through meeting together, and Child blessing/Welcoming/ Naming ceremonies reflect this personalised ethos. Ceremonies here are made meaningful though connecting in the Walmsley Unitarian community over time and if you find this is the right environment for your spiritual approach. (In order to offer personalised ceremonies and in line with the community ethos we are unable of offer a 'one off/ venue' approach, saving exceptional circumstances.Thank you)

To find out more about The Chapel, our Unitarian ethos (and whether this is right for you), please come along to Sunday services when you can; held each week at 11 am.
