All who share our liberal and enquiring approach to religion are welcome to join us for worship or social activities. Your own religious background does not matter. We impose no tests of faith in our congregations and require no subscription to particular creeds. We ask only that you join us in a spirit of prayerful reflection and enquiry, and with tolerance and openness to the sincerely held beliefs of others. Each person is free to explore their own faith within a welcoming, accepting and nurturing group of like minded people.

On the congregations page you will find the locations of our seven congregations with their service times and links to their individual websites where you will find more information and contact details.
