Each session follows a regular pattern, including readings and music, time for guided prayers of gratitude, compassion for others, self-reflection, and silent meditation. Led by Laura Dobson. All welcome. 
This week’s theme is ‘Sacrifice’.

Saturday 30th July 2 – 4 pm: Laura’s induction service, followed by refreshments, in the church and on Zoom
Join us for a service of celebration, at which Laura will be “officially installed” as the minister with Chorlton Unitarians. In time-honoured tradition, the service will be followed by tea and cake. The service will be led by the Reverend Jeff Gould, minister with Dean Row, Wilmslow and Hale Barns. Reverend Mark Hutchinson, a former member of Chorlton Unitarians, whom many of you will remember, will be giving the “charge to the congregation.”
Everyone is welcome, but for catering purposes, it would be helpful to know if you will be attending in person.
