Our Minister

Welcome! Thank you for visiting our website. You are warmly welcome to visit our chapel, located right in the heart of Warrington. Our services are held the first and third Sunday at 10:30 am. Or just stop in whenever the gates are open - we'd love to make your acquaintance.

The Unitarian tradition values tolerance, reason, service and love over creed and dogma. Our members embrace a wide variety of different perspectives, including Christian, theist, agnostic, Celtic, Buddhist, and more. What draws us together is a mutual responsibility to seek meaning and purpose, to make the most of our lives, and to do our part to care for our neighbours and the world. Our roots stem from the Protestant tradition, and our services proudly incorporate the Lord's Prayer and the Bible - but we find wisdom from many other sources as well. The Apostle Paul wrote, "The letter kills, but the spirit gives life" - like Paul, we Unitarians follow the living spirit of divine love, rather than the letter of dogma, in all matters.

I encourage you to come on a Sunday if you would like to explore this perspective further. And whoever you are, whatever your faith and background, abundant blessings to you on your spiritual journey. The world needs people who are not afraid to dig down into that well of courage, generosity and service that can be found deep within our souls. God bless you.

Yours faithfully,

Rev. Bob
