News and Events
50 Years at Clover Street!

On Sunday 7th July, to celebrate our 50th Anniversary in our current building on Clover Street, we are hosting a special service of worship at 3pm, followed by an Afternoon Tea.

On Saturday the 6th of July, we are hosting a High Tea in the afternoon, followed by an evening's musical entertainment from local group Undercover2.

Throughout the weekend, we will have informational displays, photographs and historic documents available for visitors to learn about the history of the building and its congregation. This is a celebration of our being here in our building for the last 50 years, and a presence of Unitarian witness within the community.

Please note that although there will be NO charge for any of these events, the special teas and music night are invitation only due to the space available.

Here is our beautiful mural

To us, it tells a story but we trust it will also speak to the hearts of those who see it. We wanted to share something of who we are, to offer something beautiful and inspirational to our community.

We hope that it will help us make connections and perhaps have conversations we’ve not yet had. People have stopped to admire it and ask questions, people who didn't know who we were or anything about Unitarians. May the conversations continue.

A massive thank you to the artists for their outstanding work, for the way they also made time to be part of a bigger conversation, and who got behind our vision and created something that will outlive us all … their talent is breath-taking.

Come and visit us, it’s even better in reality … all are welcome!
