Chorlton Unitarians is a community of spiritual explorers – we come together to seek truth, meaning, love and deep connection.
We have no creed and believe everyone has the right to seek the truth for themselves, using reason and experience, in dialogue with others.
We share wisdom from a variety of spiritual traditions, welcoming people of all faiths and none.
We are an inclusive and diverse community, welcoming LGBT+. We are licensed to perform both same sex marriages and marriages between a man and a woman. Please see our rites of passage page for further details.
We share principles based on the oneness of humanity:
The inherent worth and dignity of every person
Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all
Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part
Our gatherings usually last for around an hour. Afterwards, we enjoy a chat over tea, coffee and biscuits.
Sunday gatherings usually include several songs, readings, one or two periods of prayer/reflection and meditation, music, and an address from the leader. Please see our events page for details of this week’s theme. We take a collection, but there is no obligation to donate.
We also have a programme of alternative spiritual gatherings on Tuesday and Friday evenings, including a variety of meditations and discussion groups, a monthly Taize-style gathering, and an Earth Spirit Circle who meet eight times a year to celebrate the wheel of the year. Please see our events page or our Meetup group for details of our events.

How to find us
The church is on Wilbraham Road in South Manchester between Chorlton and Stretford. Please note that the church building is not immediately visible from the road. The Church is behind a set of flats called Regency Court flats, but there is a clear sign in front of the flats directing you down the driveway to a small car park and the entrance to the church.
From the crossroads at the centre of Chorlton (junction of Barlow Moor Road and Wilbraham Road) turn onto the A6010, Wilbraham Road, towards Stretford (left if you are approaching from the Didsbury direction, right if you are approaching from the Manchester Road direction). Continue past the shops and the Spread Eagle Pub on your right. Pass Sibson Road on your right. After a further hundred yards or so, Chorlton Unitarian Church lies to the rear of the Regency Court flats on the right. Look out for our pale blue-green sign. Access is via the driveway to right of flats.
