Our main get-togethers are at 3pm on the first and third Sundays of every month. All are welcome to share the BEAUTY and PEACE of the Meeting House by trying out our refreshingly OPEN-MINDED services. We are now also offering Bury folk a monthly discussion group on the second Sunday of each month at noon at the Oakes Barn pub - not a spiritual gathering but a fun, friendly space to get us away from our computers to build face-to-face mutual understanding between people.

Upcoming Sunday gathering themes and times are as follows:
'MEMORY' - theme of our circle gathering led by Matt Smith - Sunday 17 November 2019 at 3pm
'ADVENT CAROL SERVICE', led by Matt Smith - Sunday 1 December 2019 at 3pm
'WHAT COULD YOU GIVE UP FOR THE PLANET?' - an ART OF CONVERSATION discussion at the Oakes Barn pub, St Andrews Street South - Sunday 8 December 2019 at 12 noon (12.15 start) - one hour only
Our VISION is to be a supportive and inclusive community of open hearts and minds, committed to love and justice. We gather to celebrate the meaning of our lives - connecting with others, locally and globally, to build a fairer, more peaceful world.
We set aside dogma of any kind - instead aiming to support one another on life's journey, gathering as a community of questioning, positive faith and hope for our common future.

The Meeting House is used for many purposes beyond faith meetings, including lunches, choir rehearsals, concerts, dramatic performances, history lectures and AGMs of local organisations. If room hire is your interest, your enquiries are best directed to, where the bookings diary is held and you will get all the information you need on times, prices and conditions.

If your interest is in a funeral, a wedding or a child's naming ceremony please contact the minister in the first instance - Rev. Matt Smith Tel: (01728) 621409 - .

Our place of worship
Seeking individual spiritual truth according to our best understanding - accepting how we are unique and yet have so much in common.
Who are the Unitarians?
Unitarians find the following important:
  • An inclusive outlook, giving due weight to reason and personal experience, where individual conscience is respected
  • Questioning and searching for higher truths
  • Valuing deeds (how we live daily) above creeds
  • Joining others with diverse beliefs seeking meaning together and fellowship with one another
If this is your outlook, you may find that the Bury St Edmunds Unitarian Congregation can offer you a spiritual home. Unitarians are not exclusive; we welcome all people of goodwill.

Bury St Edmunds Unitarian Congregation is an Excepted Charity in membership of the Unitarian General Assembly (full title - the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches). Our Privacy Notice in relation to data protection may be found on the Activities page on this website.
