Global Climate Change and Harvests we Depend on

Service led by Rev John Clifford

Preparing the soil, planting seeds, nurturing and caring for the plants, gathering in and processing...at each stage of the harvest, changing weather conditions are making a once predictable (more or less) process very unpredictable. Is there a solution to this present and real threat to our unsustainable model of how we feed ourselves?

Going with the Flow

Service led by Rev Caroline Cormack

We may like the idea of ‘going with the flow’ in life but what does this really mean and how do we achieve it, especially during challenging times? This service will explore how we can encourage a freer flow of energy within ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Kindness, Positivity and Joy — how do we use these in our lives?

Service led by Christina Harper

Bring your joy to service! Seeing people who seem to always be positive, encouraging, joyful, makes me wonder what they do to be that way. In the face of war, climate change, personal tragedies, and the turmoil in the world today, how do we find kindness, positivity and joy and pass it to others?

Have you Tried Screaming?

Service led by Rev Peter Fairbrother

“You can throw away the ideal of the ‘calm, cool, collected and rational one’ right now, friend. It is a terrible lie. It is healthy to sob, to scream, to moan, to sigh, to laugh hysterically, to tremble, to feel fear, anger, profound sorrow, ecstatic joy, deep and powerful desire and longings.” Words by Jeff Foster. How are we with anger and wrath as expressions of the human condition?

Flower Communion

Service led by Jane Aaronson & Lynsey Bailey

‘If a person cannot see beauty in the world around them, then troubles and sadness tie them down’. Norbert Čapek said this at the first Flower Communion that he led in Prague on 4 June 1923. Today, as we remember him and that service, you are asked to bring a few flowers with you to share. We hope to be helped by the young people on our children’s programme during the first part of the service.

All about Easter

Service led by Lesley Hartley

Easter is the most important holy day in the Christian calendar; yet many of our modern Easter celebrations reflect non-Christian traditions. The celebration of Easter extends beyond the church. Since its origins, it has been a time of celebration and feasting. Today it is commercially important. So how, in all this, do Unitarians celebrate Easter?

Our Whole Selves

Service led by Rev Lara Fuchs

“Wholeness doesn’t mean perfection: it means embracing brokenness as an integral part of life” (Parker Palmer). We are continually in a process of change and renewal, hurting and healing, and may not always recognise or embrace our true, whole selves.
