Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation.
Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week’s Gathering is “Bearing and Birthing Babies”. Birth happens to all of us, at some point in our lives! In this gathering The Hackney Home Birth Group, the Hackney Positive Birth Movement and some New Unity mums reflect on how childbirth is represented in western culture and the epidemic of negativity and fear that surrounds modern birth. By telling the kind of birth stories that often go untold this gathering offers a different perspective on childbirth and invites us to consider the role we can all play in creating a more positive birth culture.
