As well as our Sunday Services, every week at 11am, there are other groups which meet regularly:
A monthly "Sparklers Children's Programme takes place on the 2nd Sunday of each month, excluding August. Children will be in the service until their story, and will then go into the Vestry with leaders for their own activities.
Bright Lights is an intergenerational worship session, which takes place four times in the year. The next session will be on 30th April 2017.
More details will appear later in the York Unitarian. Sessions involve stories, nature, craft, spirituality, music, humanity, fun, community, and creativity.
The chalice candle was made at a Bright Lights session.
Can you spot who is hiding here?
"Alice and Tamaris helped to create our hibernation den in the chapel garden at Bright Lights. We weaved an autumn blanket with twigs, leaves, berries and stars to light the winter dark. We decided we didn't fancy hibernating ourselves though, thinking we'd miss too many things like frosty mornings, Christmas, our family and friends and teddies."
