The British League of Unitarian and Other Liberal Christian Women (Women's League) was founded in 1908. Its Objects are:-
- to quicken the religious life of our churches and to bring Unitarian
and other other Liberal Christian Women into closer fellowship.
- to promote the formation of branches in connection with the Churches
- to suggest ways and means of providing for the needs and extending the influence of such Churches and fellowships and to collect and spread among members, information of Liberal religious interests.
There are now 42 branches, grouped in 10 Districts throughout the United Kingdom, all represented on a Central Committee. There is a gathering for the Annual General Meeting at the Denomination's General Assembly Meetings and a Triennial Conference with a Rally in the years between.
At District and Local Level, the branches serve their churches
communities in many interesting and varied ways such as educational talks,
craft work, care of the elderly and disabled, money raising and social
gatherings. Each branch arranges its own unique programme.
At National level there are many activities associated with the League. They include:
- publishing a bimonthly League Letter, communicating news and events.
