Richard Price and the Rights of the People

Richard Price, 18th century minister at our Newington Green chapel, spoke for the rights of the people over the power of monarchs. His support of the French and American revolutions influenced many leaders, including several of America's Founding Fathers.

Mary Wollstonecraft and Feminism

Mary Wollstonecraft regularly attended our Newington Green chapel in the 18th century. She made a powerful case for liberating women, and put her theories into practice. Today she's rightly celebrated as a feminist pioneer.

Marriage Equality

In 2008, we became the first religious establishment in Britain to refuse to carry out any weddings until all couples had equal marriage rights. We're proud of our role in helping to propel a national movement toward full marriage equality.


Refugee Crisis

We work with Citizens UK to enable refugees to settle in Britain and to help them become successfully integrated in London.

The Unity Project

We co-founded this project to provide practical support to vulnerable migrants, including help with legal casework. Its weekly drop-in center is held at our building in Islington.


Living Wage

We're proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer. Partnering with Citizens UK, we work to encourage more employers to take this important step towards fair compensation for all workers.

Rogue Landlords

Working with Citizens UK, we're pressing for more robust enforcement against 'rogue' landlords who abuse vulnerable tenants and fail to care adequately for their properties.

Supporting local charities

New Unity donates all Sunday collections to local charities. Each month, another worthy effort is supported by the generosity of New Unity attendees.  Many thousands of pounds have gone to propel justice and support work for women, refugees, homeless, and much more.
