These are the statements that members of the congregation created to describe their feelings about New-Unity and their faith:
It is a community of people that value spiritual traditions and support each of its members through their individual lives.
Unitarianism is a place of sharing, exchange and support where open hearted people seek to grow spirituality and socially together while avoiding to impose any strict views of the world, beliefs or moulds.
Belief in the Sacred and interconnectedness of all and everything. Search for truth, love, harmony and appropriate action. Total acceptance and challenge to move beyond.
I know I am new here but have been Unitarian for 10 years so I get this a lot. Unitarianism: We dig everyone! All great religious leaders taught love, kindness and understanding and we keep those ideas minus the negative stuff.
I come to church because I like to sing hymns, listen to the Minister’s sermon, and especially if there is a story. It makes me feel good. Also I like to be among friends and especially the young people. They are our future. We welcome all people, there is no creed. I do believe in God, but it doesn’t matter if you don’t.
Unitarianism offers me a community of support, encouragement and spirituality in a context where I can bring who I am and I can offer that same support and encouragement to others, different from me, while honouring those differences.
Why I want to join the Unitarians: It’s not that I want to join a particular denomination; it’s rather that I want to be part of a group. I want that group to be inclusive and caring for each other; also, I am looking for a concern for others, both in this country and around the world. I am looking for a group that is guided by logic and where ideas and principles are thought through and discussed. On a negative side, I cannot any longer be part of the denominations I have grown up through, because I cannot accept the various principles on which they are based. I am looking for more discussion and debate on the issues that are of concern at present, a more outward concern and more concern for social justice.
Hi, I’m new! (I heard about you on Twitter-believe it or not) I am hoping to find a group of people with whom I can share my ethical and moral development. I am hoping not to feel like the only liberal scientist who feels strongly about ethical and spiritual questions. I’d like to find people like me and renew my faith in humanity!
I’m new today. I am hoping to find a community to share a journey of learning about the spiritual world, taking good ideas from all religions, while I search for direction in my own life. Thank you for a great introductory service.
I am drawn to this church because I believe it celebrates the divinity in each human being in the world around us.
Unitarianism provides us with the freedom and encouragement to explore our own individual spiritual needs and development. We respect and care for one another as a community. Together we share ideas, consideration, joys, sorrows, wisdom and words of intelligent discussion to help one another grow and become more fulfilled. We celebrate life together.
Unitarianism cheers me up and gives me hope. It takes me out of myself to trust in others and kill the killjoy in me.
The Chapel, Minister and congregation offer you a welcoming place with support to cultivate your own inner light.
Unitarianism is a petrol station for everyone to pull up to and then leave full with which ever fuel they choose to be right for them.
Unitarianism is a religion which taps into the deep undercurrents of love which are already present in all other faith traditions, and gives primacy to the expression of compassion within community. PS: I liked “not people into heaven, but heaven into people” very much!
Unitarianism is based on shared values, not beliefs. We value love, community, searching and service. We not only support each other, but also collaborate to enhance our understanding of and experience in this life.
A place where you can find your own spiritual pathway. Friendship, love.
The chance to sing
The chance to share
The chance to think
The chance to debate
The chance to participate
The chance to listen to Andy’s words-usually wise, sometimes humorous.
The chance to laugh and be uplifted
The chance for my spirit to fly
I come to New-Unity to learn how to listen with all my being, especially my heart.
A disorganised, radically liberal religion, where we are all on a spiritual search. It’s more about what you do in the world than what you believe.
Unlike Christianity it is not about what you believe. But Unitarianism does have attitudes. An attitude of helping others, an attitude of being for social justice.
Unitarianism is a free faith where everyone is able to follow their own spiritual path. It is a very liberal movement, with services both in the USA and the UK. We seek peace and love amongst one another. God is not openly worshipped. It helps me to reflect.
Unitarianism is a movement that recognises the value in all the world religions, but offers all the insights that they have revealed so that one can take from them what makes sense to each individual.
Unitarians are a friendly community that easily welcomes everyone they meet.
Unitarianism: Service, acceptance of diversity, community and belonging, individual paths to the divine...
