The New Unity story is rooted in the Enlightenment spirit of dissent, activism, freedom, and equality. For more than 300 years, free-thinking people have looked to this community as a haven for unconventional hopes and ideals.
What began as a space for nonconformist belief has blossomed into a radically-inclusive community, dedicated to the pursuit of peace, social justice, and unity.
Come to New Unity Sunday Gatherings and other activities for personal and community growth, from mindfulness and discussion groups to book and study circles. Bring the children to the weekly Bright Lights programme and other family-friendly activities. Watch for larger events throughout the year!
Social justice is integral to who we are. We promote individual activism, work closely with other activist organisations, and regularly support local London charities.
The theme from January to March 2017....
Climate change can often feel "out there" as something we are all a part of, but that is usually affecting someone else a thousand miles away...London has been hotter than ever before, which means more picnics on Hampstead Heath and even though it is really sad for the poor polar bears, it's not really all that bad is it?
The message today will be offered by Ama Josephine Budge a London/Accra - based writer, curator and artist whose work navigates explorations of race, gender, diaspora and feminism. Her work challenges neo-liberal feminisms, working to activate and catalyse movements that emphasize human rights, ecological revolutions and de-gendered identities.
The New Unity Choir meet every Sunday before the Sunday Gathering.

In lives that too often bring real sorrow and tragedy, what kind of hope can we have for our own return to light from times of darkness? Today, we celebrate, not miracles, but real-life resurrection!
