Sunday 27th December 10.30 – 11:30 am Sunday Gathering (In Chorlton Unitarian Church and on Zoom)

In the past, religion was often understood as a body of revealed truth, and each denomination insisted on their own particular interpretation. Nowadays many people, especially the Unitarians, look to a revelation from the spirit within us all, transcending dogma. Ralph Waldo Emerson, himself a Unitarian, played an important part in developing this viewpoint with his doctrine of the Oversoul, of which our individual souls are parts.

Join us at our weekly worship service. This week’s theme is ‘Emerson and the Oversoul’, led by Mike Rutter and Tom Grimshaw. All welcome.

Please contact admin@chorltonunitarians.org for the Zoom meeting details.

Monday 21st December, 7:00 – 8:15 pm – Yule / Winter Solstice celebration, led by the Unitarian Earth Spirit Network – on Zoom

Join our informal gathering to celebrate Yule, the festival of reflection and renewal. At this time we pause and listen to our inner wisdom in the stillness, becoming aware of the seeds of our future growth waiting for birth. We welcome the rebirth of the sun at the winter solstice, seeking renewal in our lives by honouring the darkness and the return of the light within.

We will enjoy seasonal music, poetry, and meditation. You will also be invited to share, in small groups, the things you are grateful for and your intentions for the new year. Please also feel free to bring poems, songs, stories or other offerings to share. All welcome.

Please email minister@chorltonunitarians.org for the Zoom meeting details.
