About us

The Chapel and congregation

The Chapel was built in 1715 and extended in 1773. It has two graveyards which include three Grade 2 listed tombs (https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1356823).

We have a small but very welcoming congregation and everybody is welcome to join our services.

If you have any queries, please email the Chapel Secretary, Shirley, at shirleyhorrocks@hotmail.com.

What is a Unitarian?

Unitarianism is a form of Christianity that believes God is a single entity and not three forms as expressed in the Trinity. However, we share a wide range of personal beliefs.

We have always combined reason and science with spirituality and faith, with a strong commitment to using our power to create a more just and fair society. Unitarians stand for LGBTQIA+ equality and anti-racism.

Unitarian history has been one of open-minded, loving community, from our origins with the dissenting Christians of the 17th and 18th centuries, through to reflecting the diversity of values and beliefs in Britain today. Our ethos is grounded in freedom and enquiry.

Our Object today is “to promote a free and inquiring religion through the worship of God and the celebration of life; the service of humanity and respect for all creation; and the upholding of the liberal Christian tradition.”
