Sunday 18 June – Fathers’ Day

Pope John XXIII said, ‘It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.’

This is a reminder as we join together to celebrate Fathers’ Day that it is not just biology that makes a real father but love and attention and commitment. We meet to honour and offer gratitude for our fathers, in whatever form or fashion they came into our lives – biological fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, spiritual fathers and all the uncles, brothers and friends who, whether they know it or not, have helped to fill the role of father in someone’s life. Let us love all such fathers and each other.

Led by Tom Grimshaw.  Starts 10.30 am.  All welcome.

Sunday 11 June – Uncertainty

We live in uncertain times on many levels: political, social, financial, existential, and spiritual.

We seek to find security in the many tangible ways that seem on the surface to meet our needs. And yet, despite our efforts, we still feel doubt and uncertainty.

The service will look at what different spiritual traditions suggest to soothe our uncertainty, drawing also on individual experience and the insights of psychotherapy.

Led by Kath Fitzgibbon. Starts 10.30 am. All welcome.

Join us for our annual Flower Communion where we celebrate our uniqueness as individuals and our beauty as a gathered community.  Please bring a flower of any kind and enjoy receiving a different flower as you leave.

This year marks the 95th anniversary of the first flower communion held in Prague by Norbert Capek, a Unitarian minister who was executed during World War Two for speaking out against the Nazi regime and helping Jews to flee persecution.  Unitarian and Unitarian Universalist congregations throughout the world will join with the Prague congregation in celebrating flower communion on this day.

Led by Laura Dobson. Starts 10.30 am. All welcome.
