Worship Services
Sunday Services for January:

All services begin at 10.30am and are taking place in-line with Government Covid-19 regulations at that time. This means that, unfortunately, we may have to cancel at short notice. We politely request that you wear a face mask when moving about the building (unless exempt) and remain seated after the conclusion of worship.

9th January - led by The Rev'd Abi Elliott-McGuffie

Rochdale Unitarians gather to give a warm welcome to our new Interfaith Minister! Abi as been a long-time supporter of our congregation even before she trained for ministry, so it is with much gratitude and joy that we welcome Abi to give her first service with us in her new role.

16th January - led by The Rev'd Abi Elliott-McGuffie


23rd January - led by The Rev'd Helen Mills

We welcome Helen back with us for 2022 and give thanks for her continued support of our congregation. We look forward to what Helen has prepared to share with us. 


30th January - led by lay leader Paul Hubbard

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served after the conclusion of each service of worship and we extend a warm welcome to all who would like to be with us during this time.

Annual Charity

Our church charity for 2021-2022 is the Send A Child to Hucklow fund (SACH).

The charity's aim is to provide funding to send disadvantaged children, who would not otherwise have a holiday, to the Great Hucklow retreat centre in Derbyshire.

SACH was founded in 1961 and has been carrying out its important work since. For more information and direct donation links, please visit:
