who are we?

The Unitarians MDA are a spiritual community who would encourage you to think for yourself. We believe that everyone has the right to seek truth and meaning for themselves, and that the best setting for this is a community that welcomes you for what you are – beliefs, doubts, questions and all!

Throughout our history, Unitarians have stood for inclusivity, reason and social justice. This includes gender equality – as a result, we’ve’ had female ministers for more than 100 years, gay rights – we’ve performed same-sex blessings for more than 30 years, and the abolition of slavery. The Unitarians MDA support equality of respect and opportunity for everyone, totally opposing oppression and discrimination, including on the grounds of any arbitrary or accidental factors such as race, gender, sexual orientation or religious belief.

' .. we respect each other's differences and share an acceptance of other views and beliefs. I love this inclusivity and leave each week with plenty to think about as well as feeling very positive and at peace with myself.'

'I have found that King Edward Street Chapel gives me the opportunity to doubt, question and to change my mind about my beliefs. At King Edward Street, my views are respected, making it my spiritual home!'

'Being a Unitarian helps me to explore and discuss my religion with my friends. It also allows me to examine my life, remembering Socrates' words: "the unexamined life is not worth livng"!'
