Who was Isaac Newton, and what did he do, apart from getting hit on the head by an apple? Well, he discovered the laws of Mechanics and Universal Gravity, and investigated light and optics, thus initiating our modern Scientific understanding of the Universe. He was the inspiration for the Enlightenment and the American Constitution. He was a convinced Christian, who believed in a duty of love and charity to all mankind. He refused to let conventional ideas bind him to the authorities’ vision of things. Oh yes – and he was a Unitarian! (Not many people know that…)

“We reap the fields and orchards. We gather in the crops.
The gleaners at the margins look for our gifts.
Share the bounty of the land: Open heart and open hand.”
Come and celebrate harvest festival with us, as we express our gratitude to the earth and each other, for all the abundance in our lives and for the bountiful gifts of our beloved community.
We will be collecting non-perishable food items for Chorlton Refugee Aid.

Hafiz says, “We can come to God dressed for dancing or be carried on a stretcher to God’s ward.”
Let’s dress for dancing and rediscover some of the original joy that resides deep in each of us. The service will explore the theme of joy in troubled times as inspired by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu in their book, Lasting happiness in a changing world.
Led by Sue Cockerill. Starts 10.30 am. All welcome.
