Marking the end of our Heritage Weekend, on Sunday 16th of September at 3.00pm, Revd. Dr. Anne Peart, formerly Principal of Unitarian College Manchester, will speak on Revd. William Gaskell in our Academy Service.


First Monday Meditation
On the first Monday of the month, all are invited to participate in a time of silence at the chapel. We meet from 12:15 " 12:45 pm, and sit silently for about 15-20 minutes.

We sometimes begin with a reading, and anyone is welcome to stay for a cup of tea afterwards. The idea is to provide a short time of reflection and contemplation, and an opportunity to centre your spirit. Participants have reported it has really helped bring a little peace into their day.

Free; all welcome.

There will be no First Monday Meditation in September. Apologies!

First Mondays are: 2nd of July
6th of August (children welcome at this intergenerational introduction to meditation)
No session in September

Dates are occasionally subject to change " please check on the website or Facebook page closer to the date. We’ll try to keep the date, unless circumstances dictate otherwise.

Peace be with you!


MEETING WITH THE MINISTER

Hello there, I would be delighted to meet with you. As I’m serving three chapels, I’m afraid it’s hard to predict where I’ll be on any given day, but if youcan drop me a line or give me a call " bobunitarian@gmail.com, 07986 826601 " I can almost always find a time during the week (and in an emergency, come to you sooner). And am very happy to do so, please do reach out. I’m happy to meet on evenings and weekends if that’s when you are free. Best wishes to you and yours.
Blessings, Bob Dexter's big day
