Programmes, activities, and events provide essential opportunities for spiritual growth and exploration. They also offer opportunities for connection, for education, and simply for having fun together.
It is in small groups that we have the opportunity to interact with one another in ways that allow us to recognise and examine our own assumptions and perspectives in the light of the diverse views around us.
Unless otherwise indicated, everyone is welcome at all events, activities, and programmes - most of these events are run free of charge (or for a small donation), but do click through to the event's own page for further details. Please confirm the event before travelling!
Bright Lights is our activity for children and families. Taking place each week at the same time as our regular Sunday services at Newington Green at 11am, Bright Lights provides a time for families to be part of the life of New Unity with activities - arts & crafts projects, stories, music and movement - that speak to children. Children begin their time in the service. After a 'Time for All Ages' introduces the theme of the day, children and accompanying adults leave together for Bright Lights. Newington Green.
Would you like to improve your English? The Conversation Club is a great opportunity to chat to other students, build vocabulary, and improve your grammar, fluency and listening skills. The club is offered for adults (18+), free of charge!
Led by Rev. Andy, this course introduces and offers a guide to New Unity as a spiritual community. In a spiritual and open atmosphere, participants will have an opportunity to learn about and discuss the three essential facets of New Unity and the spiritual/religious journey: community, justice, and the individual spiritual path. The course is especially well-suited intended for those who are relatively new to New Unity, but anyone who is interested may join the course.

Galactic Orchids is a series of astronomy talks aimed at the general public, to raise funds to for the Orchid Project and other charities fighting female genital mutilation. On the second Wednesday evening of every month, Alice Sheppard will talk about a different astronomical topic. Talks will last about 45 minutes and will be followed by a question and answer session, then tea/coffee and biscuits! You won't need to know any astronomy to come along. We'll be inviting representatives from the Orchid Project, Daughters of Eve, and other people working to end female genital mutilation, which affects millions of women across the world and thousands in the UK. They'll tell us briefly what they do to raise awareness of the practice, help bring an end to it, and help women and girls who have undergone the procedure...
